Happy Monday! For a few days now I have been in a kind of funk. I am so close to realizing some of my dreams coming true, but first I still have much work to do. I am not a very patient person, and sometimes I have to remind myself to be still and that soon all things will work out. This morning I woke up and wondered what I could do to become a bit more patient. I took a chance to look back on the last several years of my life, and I remembered how impatient I was years ago when I started back in college. And here I am one semester away from my bachelors. Many people didn't understand why I would want to go back in my mid 30's, but I knew that time would pass anyway, so I might as well start. It was an exciting time and it has been a challenging few years. It has also been a very empowering and exciting few years. I have learned so much, and I know that my Masters comes after this, but I am so close to realizing a dream of mine that I had for so long. I thought of every excuse why not to go, and then finally I decided the one reason I needed to go....I had to make one of my dreams come true, no matter how hard and no matter how old I was.
With this came some thoughts and appreciation for so many people along this journey. There are so many people that have made a difference in my life, and so many people who encouraged me when I wanted to give up. When my light seemed to go out, there are people who have helped me ignite the light in my soul once again. These teachers, friends and my husband who have rekindled that light I can not thank enough. The wisdom that has been shared with me has been incredible, and something that I am so grateful for. So today, I am grateful for the wisdom, love and patience of my teachers and friends, and husband have so graciously given me. Without people my life would be gravely lonely, without support I would not have made it this far. I am grateful for the people in my life, and for the people who will impact me that I haven't met yet. What are you grateful for today? Who has made a difference in your life? Who has encouraged you when you needed it most? Gratitude propels you in to joy, and living in a vibration of joy helps you realize your dreams. I will never stop dreaming, and I will never stop learning. I am so very grateful for this. Be the light for someone else today, help others rekindle their light within. Namaste :)
