Life Lesson of the Day 3.5.14

 Life Lesson of the Day: Learn to Love the Journey


If you are anything like me, you know what you want and you want it now. Unfortunately, that is not how it works. Most of the time I feel like I am running in place going  no where - apparently, that is the journey I am supposed to learn to love.

I am in the process of transitioning jobs and leaving behind what I have been comfortable with for over 4 years and stepping into an unfamiliar zone. There will be a lot of readjusting, and for me personally I will be adding a 'back to school' element into the mix.I thought by this time in my life I would have found a career that I love and would be working hard on promotions and getting to the top of the company, but I am not there yet. What I want the most at this time, is to find out what I truly want to do with my life as a profession and in a career, then work my ass off to get there. I am envious of those who know what they want and know where they want to go. The only thing I have ever been certain of, is that I want to be happy and live a simple life. I just don't know how to make a career out of that.

My amazing husband has been so patient in this transition and has had to put up with  my panic attacks, anxiety, and crying fits (which I am not proud of). He has been such a support and wealth of advice and knowledge to me, and I am so blessed to have him. This morning I left the house in tears as I drove off to my new position dreading the day ahead of me, when I got to the office I received an email from Ken that read. 'LEARN TO LOVE THE JOURNEY' - it is my promise to him to sit back and enjoy the ride and not be in such a rush all the time to get where I want to be.

Here's to you Ken -
