If we were having coffee I’d invite you to get settled in and comfy. I’d offer you a hot drink, but maybe you’d prefer something cold? The weather is amazing today and it’s the perfect kind of day to sit outside and enjoy the warmth and sunshine.
If we were having coffee I’m want to reflect some… you see this weekend is an anniversary of sorts.
I feel like there are a handful of points in one’s life that you can look back at and pinpoint as pivotal turning points in your life. Do you have any moments like that?
Last year, this weekend was marked by extreme highs (a poem I wrote being Freshly Pressed) and crashing lows (the death of my grandpa). It was an emotional roller-coaster, and the year that has followed has been equally unpredictable.
But I feel like that weekend set into action so many things that have culminated in where I am now. Sitting here willing to do the daunting hard work that is needed to meet the vision I have. A vision of what I want to be doing, where I want to be, and who I want to be.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that, honestly, this is the first time in over 15 years that I have been truly comfortable with a clear vision of the direction I want to be going. It is an amazing feeling, and I know that all that has happened this year, the ups and the downs, have helped to get me there.
That’s really what’s on my mind as we sip our coffee in the sunshine. I find it amazing how the world can be so unpredictable sometimes.
Today’s post is a part of the Weekend Coffee Share, graciously hosted by Part Time Monster every weekend! A time for us to come together, share a cup of coffee (or our beverage of choice) to share some of what is going on in our lives. It’s a lovely check-in time.
