I’m here!! It’s finally happened I have climbed an unimaginable hurdle and guess what? I survived! Though the bumps and bruises along the way have left some scars, I feel like I am ready to embrace my change. For so long I have wanted to make it all go away, there had to be a way I could go through it without actually living it.
Unfortunately I never found out how to do that. The road was long and there were many times I wanted to just give up. Today I sit in my new space with fresh walls that will hold only new memories for me and I am a very happy Butterfly!
It has been very strange since I moved, things are actually happening without a struggle. The old saying “everything is falling into place” is really happening. The last few weeks I have caught myself not wanting to get too excited thinking maybe I would jinx something. If I were to do that though, I would miss out on a lot of new-found happiness. My surroundings are beautiful, peaceful and a great place for new beginnings. This weekend I spent decorating and boy did I put my heart into the energy and created what I think are some beautiful rooms. It’s amazing that one little $2.00 purchase would get the creative juices going and an entire theme room took shape. I took something that by itself was plain and simple, added a little glitz and created something spectacular.
I am a very lucky lady today, I have been given a chance to embrace my change and imagine all the possibilities of the future. Just a few years ago I never would have given any of that a second thought. I was stuck in the event that was forcing unwanted change and thought for sure that is where I would forever be.
My new assignment is to learn how to really take it all in without worry or stress. I know the practice of living in the moment takes a lot of discipline but I am willing to give it one heck of a try. Living day-to-day without stressing over something whether it be big or small is just what the doctor ordered. I am Learning how to imagine a future where I can be happy.
Within these new plain walls, I have begun to create a canvas of hope. Something I never thought would come, but will forever be a welcome guest in my new home.
Did you know when you were ready to imagine your change, your future? Please comment.
