Since my last post I have officially left my 40’s! What a great journey this has been. As look back over my first 50 years I think all of the things that I wanted to accomplish in my life. I think about where I thought I would be at this stage in my life versus the reality. Things did not always turn out the way that I wanted them to but I am yet grateful for where I am.
I wanted to be married with one child, preferably a daughter. I wanted to comb hair, take her to ballet class, go shopping & have mother-daughter time.
I did get married but I also got divorced. I did have children but I have two boys who could care less about hair, ballet or shopping. But at least one of them likes to spend quality time with me. For now!
I wanted a fancy high powered high paying career and travel the world on my business account.
I did work in corporate America & had a tiny taste of business travel. Now I work in nonprofit. So much for high powered but I love the feeling for helping and hopefully inspiring women, especially young women.
So things did not turn out the way that I dreamed but I’m not complaining because there are people who wish they had the life that I am living. When you hear people praying for the things that you take for granted it makes you grateful. It makes you sit down & be humble and appreciate what you do have.
I wake up every day grateful for my life because obviously this is the path that God has allowed me to travel and who am I to argue with Him? There have been many bumps & bruises and yes I have the scars to go with them but there have also been more victories. It’s the victories that I focus on. It’s the victories that keep me moving towards the next victory.
I count this blog as part of my victories. It hasn’t always been easy, especially when you are uprooting not only your life but that of your children. The dedication to writing has not always been a top priority. I have fallen down many times with the blog but eventually I get back up and start again. I am thankful for you as read this. I am thankful to you for reading this.
Life may not be what we dreamed but if you are able to read this be grateful for your journey and keep moving forward, bruises and all.
Beewisdom- Stay patient & trust your journey
