I’m on overload today. My thoughts are a jumble of indistinguishable whatnots. I feel overwhelmed by the should do’s and want to’s. After having read a couple of wonderfully written articles, I feel deeply moved and am further questioning what I’m up to in life.
Earlier this morning, I was torturing myself by comparing my life and talents with everyone I hold on a pedestal, which is pretty much everyone but me…I promise that I DO love myself. I’m growing as a person, but it’s taking FOREVER. I feel like I should be further along in the process than I am.
“Comparison is the thief of joy.”
One thought I had while comparing myself to one such POWERFUL woman friend who went back to school a few years ago and is wrapping up her first year of teaching, was to get my butt off the sidelines and join her in the action…whatever that looks like for me. It could be the decision to pour myself into my family and let go of any other dreams.
The family dream is a beautiful dream in and of itself and worthy of every minute of my time. I admire women who run their homes so well, regardless of where they work both in and out of the home. Maybe it looks like going back to school or doing what I’ve already been trained to do by stepping out of my comfort zone (that’s full of excuses) and offering to tell people about What Every Person Can Do. Maybe it’s a combination and I haven’t hit on the right mix yet.
It feels like decision time and there’s no wrong decision, except indecision. I can ALWAYS change my mind at any time and pick a new route. I don’t have to have everything figured out.
I am creating my life one day at a time. We all are.
While I’m figuring out what my next move is, I want to share with you these two articles that touched my heart today. They are both about how we belong to each other and full of moving and powerful quotes and they are located below my post.
When you’re done reading the articles, I would love to know what you think about them. Did they move you too or was that just me? Do you relate to life being brutiful? Do you want to save all the kids? Please share your thoughts.
Thanks for reading and discussing!
