My dog took me for a walk this morning.
I was sleepwalking around the house holding on to my huge, very hot cup of coffee for dear life when I came upon this…
I mean could you resist that sweet little face?
As we reached the end of our driveway I instantly began to relax and knew that a walk was a fabulous idea.
Thank you sweet Oakley.
Things have been rather crisis oriented lately.
There have been health issues, life changes, exciting beginnings, sad endings, cranky cars and sleepless nights. In the midst of it all, Wenderly (the blog) turned ONE this week! Needless to say, life got in the way and I was totally oblivious to the fact that Monday was the big day until about 8 o’clock that evening.
Which is shocking because lately I’ve been so on top of things.
Take for instance yesterday. I went to the library to check out the audio version of “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Steven Covey. When the librarian looked over her glasses to ask me for my library card, I realized sheepishly that I had left my library card in the car. How do you like that for irony?
Story of my life.
As my footsteps set into rhythm, my mind began to relax and I realized that the birds were happily chirping a serenade that I hadn’t relished for months. It reminded me of my very first post but a year ago.
I began this whole adventure talking about Life’s Little Wonders…
As I walked off my stress I became aware of the incredible path that I’ve walked this past year…
It reminded me of all of the miraculous things that have been waiting quietly to be discovered,
if I just look hard enough,
and am patient enough to take a peek inside,
and see what is hiding within.
This past year has also taught me how to stand back,
and look at the big picture.
Now there have definitely been days that I felt hopeless and frustrated,
All alone wondering what in the heck I was doing.
Questioning myself and my ability.
Do you ever feel like that?
Well I’m here to tell you to keep walking. We all have a path…the trick is to keep taking the next step.
I now find myself nestled within so many supportive, talented and phenomenal people,
my family, friends, the blogging community and YOU the readers. I feel so very honored and blessed to be on this incredible journey.
If you happen to be reading this while going through your own life struggles and feel lost…
…don’t give up!
The sun will shine again,
and you’ll be amazed at what life has waiting in store for you!
Much love & many blessings!
Hope you’ll join me tomorrow in celebrating my ONE year anniversary with my all time favorite Triple Chocolate Torte!
