Creating a Life…with just Five Things a Day!

words and thoughts from my journey



Why Being Tired Is Worth It

Some days I’m stressed, some days I’m just tired, and some days I’m full of spunk but most days I’m happy, and every day I am grateful. I made the comment today a few times of how busy a day today was and twice I was told how great that was because busy means job security. In the light of the current (past week) events in my workplace, that is true. I am so grateful to be where I am today. I worked hard to get to where I am and I will continue to work hard to stay and grow where I am. If you’ve been following me for a bit then you know I strive to get everything out of life that I possibly can and that isn’t going to change anytime soon, that’s part of who I am. I am lucky to have a job I enjoy and most days love and I’m lucky to have the flexibility to still reach out for other things I love and want out of  life so tonight I think even though it’s pushing midnight and I just finished wrapping up some things for the office, I am blessed to have the life I have. Today I hustled at the office and then I went and won 1st place at Trivia to come home and curl up on the couch and go into my virtual office to continue pushing through the projects that lay ahead of me. Though this may leave me tired tomorrow I get to go to sleep tonight feeling proud and accomplished. Yesterday’s post I spoke of perspective, today I give you an example. So to all the tired souls out there, think to yourself what motivates you to have late nights, what motivates you to keep pushing through? Is it the sense of accomplishment at the end of a long day? For me it is, it is a sense of pride, a thought that I am making a difference and that feels good. So a toast to those of us that are tired and to those of us that keep going, because we are the people that are making dreams happen, we are our own shooting stars!



The Feeling of Flight

Today I did something unexpected, something that would surprise the folks that have known me for so long. Today I climbed into a bi-plane, a plane that had no windows or doors on it today, and I went for a flight. The feelings of freedom I had being in the air overcame my fear of heights. There was no fear of anything being up among the clouds. I felt invigorated, I felt calm, I felt at home. My mind was filled with amazement, my heart filled with courage and strength. It was breathtaking, bringing tears to my eyes. I had never felt so free and alive in my life as I did in those fifteen minutes! I knew in those moments that I had made the change, turned the leaf that I had been fighting to do for so many years. In the air I was struck with the idea, the thought, that this is the life I want to life, the life I’m living, the life in which I can seize every day and love every moment of the rest of my life. This was my freedom. Today I was a bird, flying high and above any troubles. Today I was a warrior. Today I was reminded how beautiful adventure is. The feeling of flight is freedom and freedom is my life!
