Hey there. My day today is full of things like work and decluttering and decidedly unexciting things. I thought I would take a moment to remember that this gorgeous path in life I have set for myself has some parts that aren't beautiful mountains and laughing streams with trains going by (like my picture from the BC to Regina trip last week). Oh and I know life can't be all super exciting rainbow fun times. I do know. It's just another thing to accept and deal.
So it's time for the big girl panties. Get up early, maybe put other clothes on too, probably not ok to show up to work just wearing the big girl panties. People expect clothes. Fine. Then do the things the best way I can, with a smile and meaning to do them. Maybe even get some surprise joy out of routine things. One never knows.
And make it happen! We're not going to get those beautiful mountains and laughing streams without a little effort. You can't just wake up and only do exciting fun things. And you know, those mountains and streams are worth a little bit of work. They may even be a little sweeter because of it.
And then Ironically, we are heading East next Tuesday, not even in the direction of mountains and streams. But it's a metaphor you guys...come on...an exciting path...it can have any number of fun things in it. Like a million Tim Hortons in a row and a stinky car to sleep in. Good times are a coming baby!
