The weather today was perfect for working outside,and I spent most all of my day in my yard. I cut the grass, moved cobblestones, and began a new project: building a new coop for my chickens. I’d put this project off all winter because of the cold, but also because I am not quite sure how to build a coop from scratch. Well, today was the first nice day in which I was also not working so I decided I would get this project started (even though I still really am not sure about how to build a chicken coop). However, I also had a job interview today at 1, so I didn’t get started on the new chicken coop until I got home and it was well after 2 by then. Try as I might, I did not finish the coop today. I needed a full day of sunlight, not a half day. I’ll get an early start tomorrow morning, bright and early.
My life is changing so much these past few months (all good things) in every aspect possible, from personal and creative to financial, business and career. It’s an exciting time in my life filled with possibilities, yet also filled with uncertainty as I chart new paths on my journey. By journey, I am referring to this journey of life which is what I consider our life on earth to be. We are moving through our existence as if we are on a adventurous voyage of discovery. We choose to learn as much or as little as we like, for you see we are the captains of our course. Our compass on this voyage is our own intuition, insight, and wisdom. I like my journey to be filled with twists and unexpected turns. These keep me alert and excited about living. One thing’s for sure, my journey is never, ever dull.
My newest endeavor is that I am going to be a real estate agent. I got my license in 2007, the year before my son passed away. Losing him was one of those unexpected twists of life. I put my license away while I grieved, became a songwriter, moved to a new town, and have started a new life. It is time now to give this career another try.
Although not all change is pleasant or exciting (especially not so when losing loved ones) it is a necessary and vital component of our journey because it propels us along. Change is the only constant we can rely on. This would not be a journey (or voyage) if our ship never moved or left port. There would be no captain, nor a need for our internal compass for guidance. We could just melt away as if we didn’t exist at all (a horrible thought). Gladly, we do exist and we are bound to the law that states change is inevitable. Welcome it. Embrace it. Accept it. and continue to move along on your journey.
Tomorrow I have a new chicken coop to finish so I guess I will say good night so I can get some rest. I’ll surely be up with the sun, first thing (even though honestly I get up early everyday).
