So, if life is a journey, do you ever feel lost? Do you ever wonder where you are on the journey? I sure do! On March 1st of this year, I lost the love of my life, my best friend of 32 years. When we discovered he had esophageal cancer last July, I retired and spent every waking moment focused on my husband. This was a hyper focused part of the journey, more on that at a later date, and my purpose and path were well defined. Fast forward to today... a quiet house, COVID looming around every corner, too much time on my hands, unlimited amount of TV, and food, yes, lots of sweets. Add to that the fact that for 29 years, before my retirement, August was a time filled with excitement and anticipation for a new class/school of elementary students to serve. This August is a different story. Needless to say, my journey has become a bit foggy, unclear, lots of weeds on the path. I have received plenty of advice and suggestions as I am thankful to have a large support group. However, finding my clear path is something only I can do by making decisions that are positive and productive. Here are some of my recent decisions to help clear my path a bit:
Keep up the Camping * Journal * Build Relationships * Journal * DIY for the Home Journal * Get a Job and Get Out of the House * Journal
I am sure this list will be ever changing as I discover what lightens my load on the journey and what weighs me down. These decisions are a part of my journey and I am thankful every day that I am alive and well, able to be on the journey.
