Monday Mantra: emerge

I hope this week has helped to remind you that there are so many things to be thankful for in your life!  This time of year can get so crazy preparing for the holidays, visiting with friends and family and dealing with the general hustle and bustle.  Its easy to get so wrapped up!  This marks just about a year that I ventured into a career change and I could not be more Thankful!  What seemed like a terribly stressful time in my life has turned out to be the biggest blessing.  With so many changes happening in the past year I can barely remember what life was like just a year ago.  We have turned a corner in our lives and oh what a beautiful life it is!

“Some changes look negative on the surface
but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life
for something new to emerge”

Thankful!

Monday Mantra: purpose

Happy mOnday to you.  I promise that I haven’t completely fallen off the face of the earth (although by my super sporadic posts…you might just think it!)  We are still just settling into life as a family of 3 (well 3 + the doodle that is).

As it is for all women…juggling the different roles we take on in life can be a challenge.  We take on so many different responsibilities sometimes it seems like there is no time.  Balance is forever the challenge.  But I must admit…although my house is not perfectly clean, and i’ve missed out on catching up with my sweet girlfriends lately…juggling this new life is more fun and rewarding then I ever could have imagined!!

“The purpose of life is not to be happy.
It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be 
compassionate,
to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

let go

Cheers to a messy, tiring and sometimes overwhelming but WONDERFUL life.
