The last six months for me have been MASSIVE, deciding to sell, the selling process and now the handover (soon to be announced) along with my everyday life which has been physically and emotionally one of the biggest I have ever encountered.
Last night I realised that I keep making excuses, blaming people, places, sleep, time and worst of all saying "yeah but my kids..." I then found this quote:
Maybe you don't like your job, maybe you didn't get enough sleep, well nobody likes their job, nobody got enough sleep. Maybe you just had the worst day of your life, but you know, there's no escape, there's no excuse, so just suck up and be nice. ~Ani Difranco
So I am taking ownership of my decisions, words and actions, starting today I am finding gratitude and beauty in the small things, even paying it forward when I get an opportunity. Because... you can't live a positive life with a negative mind!
Vege Patch Serenity
Recently I bought some herb and vegetable seedlings that I have never made time to plant. Funny that! But today I found the time! Filled up the water can, put on the gardening gloves and got down and dirty. The serenity that came with it was beautiful. Seriously the inner peace I found by just getting outdoors and planting a simple vege patch was amazing! Just 30 mins and the result has been so uplifting, and that makes today feel more approachable.
So here's to a new direction and new opportunities; small or big they all count!
