Ten years ago, I was a new-ish teacher. I thought I would teach for about six years and then cross over to become a principal. I even thought I would run for mayor. I was not a mother yet, but I thought for sure I would have a daughter first and then maybe two boys. Steve was in the military and I thought we would be posted to Trenton and we would finish off the army years there. This is what I envisioned. This is what I thought my life would look like.
Fast forward ten years and WHOOA, was I off! I'm no longer teaching. I paint. I'm never going to be a principal (and if I do, please believe that my body has been taken over by aliens...lol!) I might run for mayor someday...(but probably not...I'm just way too opinionated to please the masses). I am a mother to a beautiful 8 year old boy, he is my only one and my heart is FULL. My husband, well, he no longer wears his uniform to work and I no longer cry myself to sleep lonely and worried that he will not make it home. Instead I see him every morning and very night and he wears nice shirts with collars and fancy pants and shoes. His wardrobe is actually WAY better than mine. We live back home-in Sudbury, Ontario Canada. Where my heart lies but my mind wanders.
Last night as I laid awake, I thought was I WAY off. My life is NOTHING like I had envisioned it, hoped it would be. It's better. It's not without it's heartbreak, but I'm OK. I'm better than OK. So, I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm open. I'm open to whatever the Universe wishes me to experience. I can plan all I want, but in the end, I just need to pay attention and TRUST. I know she has my back. I know, no matter what, I'll be OK.
Wishing you a beautiful day. xox
