1. Tonight, I found that my page was listed as one of the top 100 Facebook Endurance pages.
Yes….I nearly cried. Ok. I did get teary. I have worked so hard with this page, that literally sells nothing promotes nothing, yet inspires and motivates so many lives.
My life long dream has never been to be famous, make boat loads of money, or be at the top of some infamous career ladder. Nope. I recently just took on a new career that makes less money, and I am at peace with my choice for it has brought me more joy in two weeks, then I had in a year and a half of making a hefty salary.
My life long dream has BEEN to inspire, touch lives, and help those who may be in a place that I can recognize. I have been through a lot in life, and have many stories and A LOT of experience. My goal has always been to leave this world a better place. Touch just ONE life. Inspire. Help. And ultimately help others MOVE forward.
For I was that girl, the one who was stuck in a downward spiral for more years than I care to admit. I believe I was put on this earth to show others the beauty that can be captured even in the darkest hour. I literally shudder when thinking back to my past, and the ‘girl’ I once was…
I am now humbled, and honored that my efforts have been recognized. I feel just a touch of validation, and I pray I can keep helping others move forward. Yes, cloud nine doesn’t even touch the feeling I feel right now.
2. Today, I didn’t do so well at work. I made more mistakes than I care to admit. I’ve been at the new job for two weeks now and am learning more every day. I nearly lost it today after making a pretty big mistake…but I went to the bathroom, splashed some water on my face, and KEPT MOVIN’…learning curves can be rough. I haven’t been a bench tech in a Histology lab in more years than I can count, but hopefully I don’t drive my coworkers nuts. 🙂
3. I went to the grocery store after work before picking up my youngest. I fought terrible construction traffic, lines in the store, and all around irritable situations. After my chaotic mess I was driving to my youngest daughter’s daycare, and I slowed to let some runners pass by at a cross walk. I smiled…realizing I needed to slow down and not let the little things bother me…I had the top down on my Jeep, music playing, and the sunshine warming my soul. Life, is good.
