Getting up 9 times….

Saturday, March 02, 2013

One of my favorite quotes is “Fall down 7 times, get up 8”. This is probably more like 10, 11 or even 12, but I am getting up again. After a year of deaths, professional chaos and just general life, 2013 is shaping up really well. I have felt a passion and urgency to be better that I haven’t felt in a very long time. There is still no shortage of challenges. We are adjusting to my son getting hearing aids, I have a new manager starting at my office Monday, more projects than I will ever have time for, and martial arts, scouts and my son’s Gifted and Talented homework load. This year though the little voice in my head keeps telling me I can do it! It isn’t about being super mom or somehow miraculously being able to do everything at once. It is just a little voice that tells me I have the strength, courage and determination to get it right in God’s time.

I am excited, a lot of the time. Not a manic kind of over the top excited (that is a whole other issue for me), just a wow, this will be so cool to do excited. I love it, even with the restarts. Here’s hoping this year continues to be this good. I have started two new challenges (one focusing on food and one on working out), and hope to be posting my success in each of those next month.
