Life seems to breeze by. Christmas was here and then it was gone. In the last 6 months, my backyard was overflowing with overabundant healthy green plants, then the frost killed them. In December we had snow that covered the entire yard for a while. Then today the snow is melted and we have vivid green grass with bare gardens. I am waiting for the snow to come back, it will, just a matter of time.
The weather along with life can be unpredictable and constantly changing, at least here in Green Bay. The best laid plans can go astray. I need to keep reminding myself of that. For along with change comes opportunities. I believe if I slow down and keep an open mind, I will see those opportunities.
I have been working in creating a clearer vision for my future. For the last three years I feel as if fate was controlling my life and I was just hanging on – trying to keep up. Now it is time for me to balance – my control and fate. I could ride the wave with fate and just hang on or I could watch for the opportunities and choose the ones that will bring the results that I want. Today, I am adjusting my sail and working with the breeze to take me where I want to go.
Off to a new year, may you reach where you want to go.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
