How Did I Get Here?

how did i get hereHow did I get here?

Life is like one big road trip, with twists and turns, detours, breaks, life in the fast lane, slow lane, traffic jams, lonely rides, arriving at destinations and then the next.

Often, we can either get way too focused on the destination or we completely forget that we are in the driver’s seat, getting extremely off course or arriving at a place one day and coming to the realization that we have NO IDEA how we even got there.

As a 40-something mom, I see this every day.  Women my age being either so focused on giving directions to others in our life that we forget about following directions in our own lives or not feeling we are worthy enough for follow our own map.  We think for some crazy reason that taking the driver’s seat to our life is in some sort of twisted, odd way, a selfish act.

Be a Giver


It’s been nearly three months since J and I had our epic adventure in New York and I’ll be honest, I’m feeling so nostalgic this morning. I miss it and I miss the awesome time we got to have together.

But my project I started this week has been the absolute best thing for me. When you feel down or a little sad, the best thing to do to to go out and do something for someone. Since I opened my heart to being very intentional about writing cards daily, endless opportunities are coming my way to enrich someone’s life.
