Getting Back in the Swing of Things

January 26th, 2015

I always laugh when people say-  “Oooh, a 9 week vacation-  you are going to come home so rested and relaxed.”     Oh, if that were only true-    Granted, I’m extremely grateful that we can take a 9 week vacation, but it’s anything but relaxing.     After all, when you take a vacation back ‘home’ – there are many people to see, places to go-   and couple that with the fact that I actually did some work while on this vacation,  plus add an emergency surgery in the mix (not my own), and you’ve got a busy time in the making.

The great thing is-   I spent time with people whom I absolutely love and adore-  and that, in spite of being busy is energizing.   It’s uplifting and that within itself makes me extremely happy.

I also learned a lot-   about other people, but also about myself.    It left me with an understanding that there are a few things that I need to change within my own life- and I’m grateful for those lessons.  It’s all about the growth and becoming a better version of myself.  After all, isn’t that what life is all about?   Learning and growing?

I feel grateful beyond words-   because there simply were a lot of people who wanted to spend time with us.   I know that not everyone has that, and I don’t take it for granted.    Not for a second.   It humbles me, and at the same time, I feel a gratitude beyond words, and I also feel loved more than I ever have.    Beautiful things happened, and when I think about them-   I’m not only inspired, but I’m also moved, sometimes to tears, about the beauty of life-   of growing, of moving forward and leaving behind what doesn’t work-  so we can create space in our lives for the beautiful-  for the seemingly impossible-  for a life bigger than we can ever dream.

So while I’m taking a ‘break’ to recharge and get back to life as I know it-   I’m also smiling daily knowing that big things are happening to and around me-   beautiful things-    and I’m grateful to see it all unfold..

Remember-   what we focus on grows, and the people we spend our time with?   They are a direct reflection of who we become-    Choose wisely-   it will make all the difference.
