As I sit on the couch, exhausted from trying to get a jumpstart on the Thanksgiving meal by prepping most of the menu today, I’m taking a moment to reflect on the past year.
So much has happened! The biggie?
I left my legal career to make a go at this entrepreneur thing. And while it’s been more work than I ever imagined, I wouldn’t change it for the world. I am just so, so thankful for the opportunity and the ability – and especially for the support from my husband to allow me to take this leap of faith. Trust me when I say, this was no easy pill for him to swallow!
The other biggie is that for the first time in the 8 years, I’ve been able to spend those quiet and mundane moments with my kids that I wished for for so long: random chatter on the way home from school; extra time for stories and hugs and impromptu trips to the park; volunteering in their classrooms; sitting with them while they do their homework; and an entire summer of just me and them (although it nearly killed me). These were all little luxuries of life that I’ve missed because I worked a 9-to-5 job, 45 minutes away from home. Let me tell you – I am overjoyed to be relishing in the mudane.
And speaking of relish, I’d better get back to mine. Cranberry relish, that is.
Before I go, I want to thank you. For reading what I write. For commenting. For sending me an email sharing your thoughts. For attending my events. For the sweet tweets and cards and phone calls. For trusting me to guide you in your journeys to live your passions. I do not take your support lightly. So…THANK YOU.
Wishing you a day filled with gratitude tomorrow. For the mundane moments and all.
