I despise starting over yet I find myself starting over... again. I could judge and condemn myself, for not sticking it out or I could find joy in the journey. Sometimes I wish I was like my husband who is just so steady, solid and rock-like! The truth is, my journey is different than his. As Thanksgiving is tomorrow, I’m reminded that I do have so much to be thankful for. There is joy in this journey that I’m on. And for that, I have God to thank. He never disappoints.
As I put my thoughts on “paper”, I realize there is no one way - wrong way or right way when it comes to the choices we make about what we do or where we go in life. They are just that: choices. However the choices we make take us on a journey. Here’s a fun fact, I am 41 years old, quickly approaching 42. I thought I would be married with children by now. Ok, so I am married with fur-children (3 cuties), but no human children. I thought (hoped) I would be a stay at home Mom. However I find myself seeking, searching and wondering --- “what do I want to be when I grow up” especially since plan A hasn’t manifested exactly as planned. Am I technically grown? I recently heard that we are not old if we are still learning and yes, I am still learning. I am learning a lot about myself and others. I’m learning what I like, don’t like and that I have choices. So I guess, I’m still “growing” up. One thing remains, I so badly want to be a Mom and I’m not giving up on that dream (and Lee equally wants to be a Dad).
Here’s the funny thing - as of next week, I’ll be starting yet another chapter in my life. I’m leaving a job that I thought was the perfect job (for me). However, I find myself embarking onto something new. I will admit that this is not a bad thing, it was time to move on. I just didn’t expect it to be so soon though. In my heart, I really want to work from home, be my own boss and that is what I’ll be doing (via contract work).
About this journey, I’m finding joy as I am writing this blog. Grammar and organization may not be exact, but I am enJOYING sharing my heart. The interesting thing (I can say that now) is -- I started a FB page for Find Your Pink and up until now, I had not posted anything. This will be the first “blog”. I was so frustrated because I was getting messages from FB about not posting, but deep down inside I’m glad for those nudges. Yes, insert joy!
Find Your Pink is all about being in the pink, which means being in good health and in good spirits. I find my pink when I’m running! Oh how I love to run! Can anyone relate? What’s your pink?
If you have stuck with me this far, thank you for reading this.
I hope you and yours have a happy Thanksgiving!
Until the next time, find your pink!!
