I’ve tried to write several times… but I guess I’m just so busy that I haven’t really had time to stop and really process and think about stuff going on in my life. I’ve also waited so long, and there is so much to talk about that is deserving of a well thought out and profound blog post… but I definitely have not had enough coffee for that. So I’m just going to free-write and see where it takes me.
Well gosh darnit, life is pretty swell. I feel like I was just bumbling along a lovely path and things were fineeee! But as I wandered along aimlessly… there was this little light peeking through the trees over to the side of the path, and I thought I’d check it out. The leaves opened up to a beautiful valley with waterfalls and birds chirping and sunlight streaming down on a million wildflowers. I mean, its freaking Lothlorien over here for crying out loud. There was just no turning back to that old path. I never could have imagined an opportunity so grand, and I still cannot fathom the fact that I get to live this incredible life. I am so grateful and appreciative of this place I am in.
I’m thinking about what exactly it is in my life that is contributing to the way I feel, and I think it is mostly this opportunity at work. It is so fulfilling to be able to do something you love, and are good at for a company you are proud to be a part of. A sense of renewed energy and hope has flooded into my life as well as a sense of confidence that I’ve never had before. There are no barriers or challenges in front of me that I don’t feel I can overcome. I have the experience and perseverance to find a way through these things and it is a very empowering feeling.
I no longer feel like I’m at a standstill in the middle of the freeway while the world around me pushes forward. I needed to find my sense of place and purpose and all it took was following that little flicker of light between the trees.
