Life is not easy. There are thousands of choices and decisions that we have to make on a daily basis. Every day is unpredictable and the choices that we initially make, may not turn out exactly how we had planned so we must be flexible enough to make new choices and decisions based on whatever new information that is presented us. Some days, it's tough to get back on that horse. Other days, you can't wait to get started and dare anything to try and slow you down!
My days fall between those perimeters and everywhere in between as I'm sure your do. Lately, even though I have the world at my feet. I have felt lost. I have many projects going- most of them huge- so I get myself into states of overwhelm. Sometimes it's hard to put on a smile because I can't see the outcomes and worry about "wasting my time" at this thing or that. But then... there's you.
You bring a smile to my face. A real, sincere smile. You give me an energy boost and the encouragement to keep moving forward. You remind me that I am here to do that same thing for you, as well. We balance.
No one is perfect, and we shouldn't be expected to be perfect. Sometimes I need you, sometimes you need me. You make me feel needed and important despite my many imperfections. You lovingly allow me to take a step back to re-gather myself then encourage me to continue. You let me know that I don't have to always be strong and that I am allowed to be imperfect.
I thank you for that.
While I am here to support you in your relationships, your parenting and guiding you to a more fulfilling life, you allow me time to do that for myself.
Your emails, reviews, fb comments and texts remind me that you need me. I am honored to be a part of your life. (Your emails tell me that the break after Daddy's Girl release has been long enough!)
So, I am back to work! But let me leave you with this as I jump back into the fray...
You may not know the impact you have on others, but trust me, you do. Your words, your smile, your attitude- positive or negative has an impact on those around you, whether you mean for it to or not! Choose kindness.
Your smile, your kind words can make the difference in someone's day.
You are the reason I wake up every morning and continue this work.
I am grateful for you. You give me purpose.
This is for you... Thank you.
