Sometimes it's hard to think about life when it throws you a curve ball. That's kind of what's happening to me right now. Life as I had imagined it would flow decided to show up and tell me that it has other plans for me. I could do one of two things, lay down on the couch, watch television and wait for it to pass me by. Option B would be to stand up, look life in the face and say, "I've got this!". I am deciding to go with Option B. When faced with these two options, sometimes I do have the urge to go with the first one. Boy that couch looks way too comfortable. I could click On Demand and cue up a reality show, but instead I'm deciding to live out my own reality show. I'm going to take those lemons and make lemonade.
Something became very apparent to me this weekend. I am licking my chops and deciding that it is time to move on. Move on from relationships, previous ways of life and my life in general. How will this look? Not quite sure yet. However, I actually put on Pandora and sang to myself in the shower. When I came out, I was excited about what the future holds. I can do anything I want! How's that for un-nerving? I have the right to make my own choices, live my life on my terms and move forward to provide an exciting future for my child. I want to give him the best role model that I am capable of.
We get plenty of opportunities in life to hit the re-set button. Self-care is huge during these moments. Take time for meditation, salt baths, nature walks and self-love. Without our energy supply on it's highest, we won't have the stamina to make it through those times when life throws you curveballs. Take a moment to collect your thoughts, look around you and be grateful for what you already do have. As long as you have a roof over your head, food to eat and good friends, you can do anything!
