Monday is here again!
I hope last week went well and your weekend was peaceful, fruitful, and relaxing…as all weekends should be!
Our week was a bit hectic with this’s and that’s, Tony traveling here and there for interviews, and a couple of days of us both feeling under the weather. But we still managed to make the most of it.
We had a lovely, relaxing weekend.
We got some fantastic Monday morning news.
My husband has accepted an offer with a company and is now once again, employed!
It’s been a mixed blessing having Tony out of a job. You may think I’m crazy for thinking being unemployed has been a blessing.
There’s been oodles of stress of course, as we’ve been through so much change over the past three years. But on the other hand, its been an amazing experience to be given the opportunity to step off the merry-go-round and make some important decisions about what we want our lives to look like from here forward. I ran across this quote and I loved it. Because I will tell you with certainty, that no matter what kind of struggles you face, life is packed full of all kinds of blessings all day, every day.
Tony typically travels for work, so with him home, we’ve been able to spend and incredible amount of quality time together. It has been fabulous!
The biggest blessing to come out of this crazy life we’ve had for the last couple of years?
The Free Dictionary calls it, “a period at one’s disposal”. And let me tell you, it’s been heavenly.
They say you can never have more of it, but I disagree.
You have to learn to live in the moment and appreciate that experience. That’s the key to making the most of the time we’re given. Just by focusing on the moment, you create the feeling and enjoyment of more time.
So we’ve been focused on soaking up the moments, whatever that may bring.
Our leap of faith to make changes in our life has come back to us tenfold. Being able to focus on what is important makes for a richer, deeper, more incredible life experience. Has it been easy to make a whole heap of life changing decisions? Of course not. Life is not unicorns and rainbows, I don’t need to tell you that!
But, it has been so unbelievably rewarding in so many ways, I wouldn’t trade the stress or uncertainty for anything.
Soon we’ll have to get back into the swing of things and learn to manage our time differently again with Tony going back to work. But we’ll take these life lessons we’ve learned over the years and apply them for a more fruitful experience. That’s what so much of life is about. Learning. Learning to tweak and mold and fight for what you want so that you can experience the absolute best of what you’ve been given.
I’m certainly no expert on life, but if I had to give one piece of advice it would be this:
No matter what, take that leap of faith.
We’re looking forward to what the next chapter will bring!
Many blessings to you in the week ahead.
