I have heard this statement made throughout my life a time or two and yet the meaning never really played a role…until recently. My goals were set at a young age and I was determined to reach them. What I didn’t know at the time was that life throws curve balls that no one can hit and can send your ‘so-called’ plans into a chaotic state without warning. My ups and downs led me to latch on to someone who was in a similar state and even though nothing changed on the outside, my inner self was screaming for change. Finally after years of fighting curve ball after curve ball, I followed the pitch, kept my eyes on the ball, and left the past just that…the past. Returning home, I met someone new, got a different job, and started to feel the change I so desperately needed.Change can be a good thing if we embrace it or at least that is what I’m learning. My goals were not the same anymore. They changed just as my life did. I am trying things I never thought I would and being myself for the first time in years. Now that time of change is happening again but not the same change as before. It is like my inner person knows far more than I do about life and is leading me down the path I am destined to follow. Wish me luck as I embark on this new journey with my loved ones by my side. Send me encouraging thoughts if you will and maybe I will hear them faintly through my thoughts. I am searching for that something in order to do what I love and love what I do.
