Maybe you’ve been wondering what happened to me, or maybe you didn’t even notice. Regardless, I’ve been living, learning and yup on occasion getting my ass kicked. Where to begin?
My life has been really rich in experiences and all the things I thought I knew, well turns out I didn’t know as much as I thought I did. This year so far, I took a month away from my family, sold a house, moved in with my mother, watched my daughter graduate, my son move out and my husband travel will his job all the time. Please don’t misinterpret, I’m not complaining. While some of these things have been really hard, they have also brought me to where I am today. Stronger.
This year is teaching me more about myself than I’ve ever known. The lessons have been much deeper and meaningful. The people who have shown up, wow, it’s been mind blowing. They are real, they speak truth and don’t blow smoke up my ass to make me feel better. In fact they kick my ass too from time to time. (Not literally, of course but by telling me what I need to hear not what I want to.)
Without going on and I on, I wanted to drop a few lines and let you know that whatever you may be facing, keep going. It may feel hopeless at times, you may want to have a pity party for your self on occasion, have it, just for a moment. After the rain, the sun shines and so shall you.
Do your best to keep your thoughts in check. What you think about becomes reality. I’ve seen this in my own life and in so many others. Keep dreaming big and don’t be afraid to walk the line. Character and integrity doesn’t come from being willing to have your ass kicked, but getting back up after you got your ass kicked. 🙂
