Enjoy the Journey

Standard

It’s both exciting and frightening to start something new. My thoughts have been wavering back and forth like a see saw in my head.

Yes this is going to be a good thing.

Am I crazy?

Should l just have kept things the way they have always been?

Sometimes the mind is not your friend and you have to take a deep breath and trust in the new steps you are about to take. How will I ever know if I don’t try something different or risk walking in a new, unfamiliar direction? Maybe something amazing is on the other side of a single decision.

Even when I cannot walk in confidence, I can walk in faith and trust that no matter what the road looks like up ahead, I can sit back, buckle up and choose to enjoy the incredible journey. If you are going to try something new, be all in. Jump in with both feet and run full speed ahead. Don’t even think about looking back. Eyes forward in the direction you are going.

Enjoy The Journey

Sometimes it’s worth lingering on the journey for a while before getting to the destination.

Exactly Where I’m Meant To Be

Standard

Do you ever stop and wonder how different your life could be? Today we celebrate my husbands 51st birthday. I can’t help but pause and think how different my life would be without him in my world. Our lives can take so many different twists and turns. There are so many different decisions we could have made, different roads we might have taken but right now I am grateful for where I am standing. The ride hasn’t always been perfect or comfortable but I can honestly say I have a wonderful life. As we threw the ingredients into the bowl and finally poured that cake batter into the pan, I was just about to call my son out for the remnants of chocolate on his face when I felt a little drip from my own. Yes, like is good and we are exactly where we’re meant to be. Take time to enjoy the journey, especially if you get lost along the way.

One Week Ends and Another Begins

Standard

Another week is over and we are heading into a brand new one. Ask yourself, how am I feeling? Are you excited, stressed, looking forward to or stressing over the days to come? It’s good to check in with your internal compass. Is it pointing you ahead or is dragging you back or allowing you to be content right where you are? What do you do to mentally prepare for the start of a new week? Maybe it’s nothing at all.

Choose Happy

Standard

Life is too short to do anything that doesn’t make you happy. It is only fair to encourage the people we love to follow their dreams and do whatever it is that makes their heart smile. You either like something or you don’t. You are passionate about something or you’re not. It isn’t about following a direction where you are good at something but rather choosing the path that makes you feel the most alive. Do what makes your heart beat stronger. You are meant to enjoy life. Steer yourself in whatever direction will get you to that destination.
