It's all a journey....

When I was in high school, my mantra was Carpe Diem, Seize the Day. I loved the movie, Dead Poets' Society, and that's what I wanted to do, seize each day. When I started dating my husband, he was amazed at how much I would accomplish in one day. I never stopped moving. I 'seized the day' from the moment I woke up until I passed out at night.

Then I got older, we got married, had 2 children, both worked full-time jobs, all of the things that make daily life crazy. I no longer wanted to Carpe Diem. I was tired. Life was exhausting, physically and mentally. My mantra was no longer seize the day, but make it through the day!

As I got older, my mantra has

changed from 'seize the day' to 'trust the journey' and 'embrace the journey'. We never know what life is going to bring us, health/happiness or illness/challenges. I teeter between trusting and embracing the journey all the time because life can be so scary sometimes.

We take so many leaps of faith between career changes, moving our families, financial decisions and relationships beginning and ending. Trust to me always meant a little bit of fear was there, like a trust fall. "Okay, I am going to trust this will all work out and the Universe will catch me." Embrace the journey was more exciting. "Where is the journey leading me? What is the next exciting chapter of my life?"

Today, I am trusting this journey as I transition into writing out loud. I'm scited (scared and excited). I made a promise to my son that I would write. And as we all know, we hate to disappoint our children.'s all a journey. I look forward to sharing our journey together!

With Love and Kindness,
