Ebb and Flow

 Seems a week has gone by since my last post.  Have to admit blogging has taken a back seat as I haven't felt as motivated because currently feel this heavy weight of stress.  Stress has a way of making thoughts feel scattered.  Scattered is the worst because instead of one thought its millions.  It's as if you just want to write about every thing crossing  your mind. Anyway....

It what the ebbs and flows of life are all about.  Life can't always be without stress, just as it can't always be sunny.  And I guess that's how we learn what we need to in life?  Because lets face it, if everyday was perfect, if life was perfect then what would we really learn right? How would we grow intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, etc.. Doesn't it seem like we learn more from the bad then the good sometimes.  The stress, the challenges, those rainy days don't they make us appreciate the small things, the good things, and those sunny days more?

Which is what I try to remind myself because usually I'm a pretty optimistic girly.  But feel like I'm being pulled in a million different directions right now, so much to think about.  The job search feels endless, each day sending out resumes, yet the dream job or any job for that matter has yet to show up. The house search pretty much feels the same way.  And if you can't tell from my other posts I think I dream about having my own house just about every second of every day. And well that's just the tip of the iceberg, there's so much more but I won't bore you with all the details.

And as the saying goes "when life hands you lemons, make lemonade".  Great saying because it's the truth.  Instead of dwelling on the stress or what may not be going right, instead focus on how you can turn it around and make it right.  And that is precisely what I am trying to do.  I'm definitely going to dwell some days more than others.  Especially when I don't have the money to do the little things I so enjoy, like buy bunches and bunches of flowers this time of year.  And golf....oh I miss being able to golf this time of year because it's so relaxing but an expensive activity for sure.

On the bright side, I'm taking courses to further enhance my education, I'm exercising to help reduce cortisol that overwhelms the body when it feels stressed, I'm reading inspirational books, praying, meditating, and most importantly trying to go back to my authentic roots of who I am and want to be.  Each one of us has the power to make ourselves better each day, and to make the world a better place.  

JK Rowlings recently said "The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are, ever after, secure in your ability to survive. You will never truly know yourself, or the strength of your relationships, until both have been tested by adversity. Such knowledge is a true gift, for all that it is painfully won, and it has been worth more than any qualification I ever earned." 

So true.

And so that is what I'm thinking today.
