This has been a big year of change for me. Change is such a weird thing. It’s scary, it’s exciting, it’s too slow, it’s too fast, it’s confusing and enlightening. I find it ridiculous how much time I’ve spent this year being freaked out by what may be or so impatientfor IT to finally happen. Even when “IT” does happen, there always seems to be yet another “IT” taunting me on the horizon.
When I step away from my crazy life, what I see is opportunity. I have a chance to make something of myself, freedom to be whoever I want to be, and support to help me get there. I know there are others out there who are struggling just to survive on the minimal level and here I sit on the brink of collapse over thoughts of my house renovation, massive career dreams and my (non-existent) love life. When clumped into those three categories, it all seems so silly.
But I won’t belittle myself for my trivial pursuits. Instead, today and for the rest of the week, I choose to feel gratitude. Gratitude for what I do Have and Hope for continued growth for myself and everyone else. And maybe a big dollup of LOVE on top too- love for ME and love for YOU, my awesome readers.
Now I’m going to quit and spend some time with my amazing family. Happy Thanksgiving.
I’m not even half-way there, but I’ll get there…
