I’ve spent a lot of time over the last year and a half reflecting on who I am and taking measures to create the life I want for myself. I quit my job of over 9 years at the beginning of 2010 to spend more time with my family and start my own business. It has been slow, but it has been a huge learning experience for me. I’ve learned that I know more than I thought I did about a lot of things…and nothing at all about some other things.
Even though I am not a frequent church goer, I am a very spiritual person…and have been able to open up more spiritually due to various circumstances in my life. I have been given many gifts and I am thankful for these gifts and blessings. This past year has not been without despair and heartache – and the ones closest to me have seen sides of me that I prefer to never show again.
However, I refuse to give up on my dreams and my hope to live a better life – a life that I want to live; a life the encompasses the lifestyle I envision for myself and my family – not how someone else thinks I should live.
I am fortunate to have a wonderful support system and feel forever indebted and grateful to them for being there for me. They see a side of me that I’m not sure I will ever truly see, always seeing the positive and never the negative…which is not an easy for me to do, when it comes to myself.
I found a site recently called Marc and Angel Hack Life and love reading it. My most recent find on the site is 12 Steps to Make a Dream a Reality. It really hit home and I wanted to share!
