Everyone says they have a busy life. I wish busy was all that I was. I’ll be the first one to take responsibility for my schedule. I choose what I do in my life. I am learning the hard way that sometimes you can’t do it all. I need to say no. I’ve learned a new definition of busy. I’ve learned a new feeling of stress. And I don’t like it. One. Bit.
On the flip side I no longer take for granted the moments of calm. Life’s tiny blessings. The feeling of the sun on my face as I drive to grab lunch. The peace and quiet at 5am on my way to the gym. Taking an extra minute in the shower to just let the water run over my head. That is where I find my time to think these days. Those are the moments I am thankful for. I think I would have lost it by now without them.
My family and friends have been so supportive this year. I know that I have been neglectful of them at one point or another, but they are constantly loving me. Letting me do what I need to and they always stay by my side. I see it. I notice. And I never forget how lucky I am to have all of you.
So I’m going to keep pushing on. Hard work pays off. I know it. It’s time to grind.
” life never tell us the when’s or why’s, but when you’ve got friends to wish you well- you’ll find your point when you’ll exhale…”
Love, waiting to exhale
