I found this quote today and well - I always have agreed that everything happens - or doesn't for a reason ...
I believe that everything happens for a reason.
People change so that you can learn to let go,
things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right,
you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself,
and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
~ Marilyn Monroe
It's time to turn the page in another chapter of my life. I have had a really rough start to what I had hoped would be a fresh positive start to the month of March. I haven't been to work the past couple of days - ended up using my last 2 vacation days staying home with my youngest who was sick. It means that I can no longer take the planned days off next week where I had planned to go visit my hometown and sister.
It's part of the sacrifices of being a parent... I missed out on work and my performance evaluation that was to happen on Monday. I am feeling very 'off' about so many things and I know I need to give myself a 'shake' to get my balance back.
It's interesting to observe for me - that the fear of the unknown territory I was in led me to self-sabotaging behaviours that brought me back to a more common or comfortable place, but when I'm honest with myself, I know that this is no longer a place I want to be. So I choose to push my limits and move to new ground ... It's time for change and I welcome it with open arms.
I need to make the choices and decisions that will bring me back to a place of peace and self-love... So yes - everything happens for a reason - and even the tough lessons keep coming at us at times, to make us stronger and more determined to succeed. Today I make the choices that will lead me to success... and I replace fear with LOVE!
