What I’m currently reading…

While I was back in Detroit visiting family and friends, I had a chance to have dinner with my sorority sisters and one of my sands recommended this book

She said that she read this book during a mini vacation she took by herself. According to my sands, it was a life changing book for her. She spoke about having clarity in her life after reading it and I could see that she had a peace about herself that I too wanted to experience. So when I got back to Georgia, I rushed out to Boarders and picked it up for myself. I’m hopeful that I too will gain that same clarity of life that she did from reading it.

I’ll keep you posted…

Sometimes you just have to take a step back

Last week was just one of those weeks that you wished would just hurry up and end. I was dealing with some things both at work and personally that I felt were beyond my control (and for those who “really” know me, know that I like being in control), so this series of situations I found myself in were really taking a toll on me. I could feel myself starting to get anxious, stressed and down right mad. I was almost ready to say “forget it all” and just throw in the towel.

Then I received a phone call this past Friday from a really good friend and sorority sister. She was out taking care of some business and she said I crossed her mind, so she decided to call me. She wanted to see how I was doing, and if I was still moving forward with my plans to start my business. Our conversation was really short; however it was just what I needed at that particular moment in time; that brief conversation provided me with the opportunity to “step back” from all that was going on around me and really take a look at the situation. I’m so glad that she called (thanks M.P.) 🙂

Lesson for learned – when you feel that certain situations are just beyond your control, sometimes you have to take a step back in order to gain a new perspective and regain control.

~Right Now~

Life is good. The boys are in school (school started August 10th) as well as football. We are starting to settle into a routine which is making life much easier for all of us. Mini me is growing and starting to develop quite a little personality. Everyday she amazes us with something new that she has picked up. First it was M, teaching her how to do raspberries, then it was J teaching her how to splashing in the tub and now she is patting you on the back when you are holding her. It’s the cutest thing you’d want to see.

Work is well work. But I know that this is simply a vehicle needed to take me to the next level. I have my plan in place and am diligently working on it. And although the light at the end of the tunnel is dim right now, I do see it.

So even if things are not “ideal” or the way I had envisioned them, right now I can say that today without reservations that…

Life is good.

The Letter (follow up)

Well the letters emails have gone out and so far the response has been great. Everyone is excited about my project and has been more than willing to provide me with their personal experiences, insight and words of wisdom. Currently I am preparing the first set of questions that will be going out to the group. I hope to have them completed and ready to go by next week.

I’m excited to see how this project will unfold.

And so the journey continues….
