My life has done a complete 180 lately. I am busy, happy, and on the go all the time!
Every morning, I drive along the beach to get to work. Even on rainy days, there is a pure beauty to the beach and water. It comforts my soul and I am in fabulous mood when I get to work!
I have a job I love. I am constantly learning new things and as a paralegal, the field of law absolutely fascinates me. I can't think of a better way to spend my days then doing something that engages my brain and which I adore.
When I get home, I'm greeted at the door by two excited dogs, spinning in circles with joy. They eat, and we head out into the yard for them to play, wrestle, and chase tennis balls. Such a huge change from just a few months ago when my Aussie would hide under my desk the entire day. She is such a happy dog now!
Once I get them exhausted enough to settle down, it's my time for chores, writing, and doing my online moneymakers. And before I even blink, it's time to head to bed!!
Somewhere in all this, I fit in time for classes, workshops, association meetings, dating, and the too rare phone calls to friends (which I'm trying to do better at!). I am incredibly blessed to have the life I do and I am well aware of how it could have been so different.
Take a look around your life. Are there things you would change if you could? Do you believe you can't? I'm a living testament to the fact that it is never too late. Don't stay in a situation where you are in danger or unhappy because you think there is no alternative. I'm not promising an easy go of it...it's not. But it is absolutely worth the peace. You can do this.
