While I truly believe that there is always room for improvement, I also believe more. than. anything. that in order to be happy, you have to get yourself to a place where you can see how amazing your life is, flaws and all. You may not have it all at once, and you may always be missing something. But, please, please, don’t forget to stop and stare and be in love with your life. After all, you only get one.
This week has not so subtly reminded me that no matter how how much I prepare for every outcome, there will still be times when I get the rug pulled out from under me. And I’ll be honest, I’d rather crawl under my covers and hibernate for the next week than make lemonade and all that jazz… but I have to believe that I am where I need to be. Somehow this challenge is getting me where I need to go. Deep breath, get up, start moving. I can do this.
