Time marches on, and if your life was a constant drudgery of the same thing over and over, it would get pretty boring. Usually the changes are for a reason. Of course, you can't always identify the reason immediately, but eventually it will all come to light. I have recently been through a couple of new changes, but when I looked the situation in the face, I knew this was exactly what I wanted and just went with it! Now I have extra time to do what I love, write, and to spend more time with my family.
Another change in my life is one that I have been wanting to welcome for a long time and have now brought it into my life with open arms! With this one, I get to hike more, and spend time in God's country.
Everything happens for a reason, even when you can't for the life of you, understand why. I have been at rock bottom and I could have laid there and died, but I picked myself up and dusted myself off and charged full ahead.
When I was young I could not decide what I wanted to do with my life. I knew I wanted children, but as a career, I had no idea. I wish I would have listen to my instincts back then and took a leap of faith. I knew deep down I wanted to write and if I would have listened to that inner voice, my life would probably be completely different now. But again, It came at the right time. At least, that is the time life handed it to me. I am grateful I now have the opportunity to do what I love.
I have learned so much and have met some wonderful people in my life. I am blessed. Now, I am welcoming new friends and I am open to the challenges a head.
Life is too short to worry about what someone else thinks or does. Take your life by the hand and lead it in the direction you want it to go. There will be obstacles, but meet them straight on. And, above all, enjoy and appreciate what lies in front of you, after all, change is good!
