After I wrote this, I felt like I had written this exact same post before. Am I repeating myself? Am I running out of things to say? I hope not. Maybe I just need to keep regurgitating the same stuff until it becomes my reality.
So much about life is simply perspective. I have good days and bad days. I have days when I wonder what the hell I’m doing with my life. And then I have days when I say wow I’m doing exactly what I’m supposed to be doing.
I’ve been waiting for months and months for our house to sell. It WILL sell. But I’m not waiting anymore. I’m not putting things on hold. I’m not waiting to pursue business. I’m not going to delay starting my son in preschool. I’m moving forward. It may suck. Just when I get comfortable with the state of waiting, we may sell our house and have everything uprooted.
But I’m cool with that. If we keep waiting for our ship to come in, we may spend our lives waiting and waiting.
So what’s driving this? I had a day like anyone else. I got to sleep in a little which is good since my sleep was interrupted AGAIN by a certain 4 year old. I got to make breakfast for everyone but my husband who slept in even more. I got to catch up a little in this whole online world. I had some good emails come in today. I got to spend time playing Imaginext (although I’m still not exactly sure how to “play” with a 4 year old like this. I try.) I got to cook. I made a soup from scratch and some cornbread.
I ended the day with a very whining 4 year old who was bored out of his mind. Who complained the entire time during the quick run to the grocery store. And then we had dinner and he proclaimed it was the best ever.
Now I’m spoiling him with some ice cream before bed while we listen to Pink’s “Raise Your Glass.” Yes, it’s the explicit version. No, I don’t think he’s heard the dirty words yet. But we both pumped our fist in the air and sang until we were both grooving and smiling.
