Today was an awesome day! I got to spend a good three hours with some awesome friends. It was great to eat some fried pickles, chicken and dumplings and have some awesome moments of laughter and just catching each other up on our lives! We were missing one of the group but we still had fun! I realized we need to get together way more often! You do not realize how much laughter and fun times can really make you have a better experience where you are. It does not matter how tired you are or how sad you may be but when you laugh and have fun, you have a new perspective.
Another thought that hit me today was I should be thankful for where I am in my life. Thankful because I have something way more precious that “money”, I have “time.” Time to go home at 3:30 and do what ever I need or want to do. I have time to be available for my kids as they need me and I have time to work on my certification and LPC requirements. God is good why can I not be happy!
It was very eye-opening to realize that I am actually being blessed by where I am in my life. Yes I may not have all the money I want, or be making the salary I want. But if I was making the salary I do want…would I have the free time? Would I have the free time to work on my LPC requirements? Would I have the free time to work on my grief certification? Would I have the free time to get coffee with my girls? Or would I have the free time to rest? NO!! No I would not!
So my new motto…be thankful! It does not matter how much money you make it matters what you are doing with your life! I need to be much more thankful for the “time” and I should take full advantage of it!
So tonight I submitted another application, I submitted an application to finish my LPC requirements.I found a school right around the corner that will let me finish my LPC requirements 🙂 PRAISE GOD!!!
See don’t you love what you learn about yourself when you have the “time.” 🙂
Keep me in thoughts tonight marks more days down and now I am three days from Africa! I’m nervous but excited! 🙂
