The Difference

I am taking a break from the vacation posts I have yet to write because something is on my mind.

A dear friend of mine pointed out in an email while I was gone that this time last year, I was in a very different place. I had just lost my job and was getting started with Premier. And I had no idea what was going to happen next in my life.

It’s pretty crazy how fast and how slow things can change at the same time.

Losing my job only allowed me to gain so much more in my life. It really was no lose at all.

It allowed me to have time as a stay at home mom, to start a business that has been a bigger blessing in my life than I ever could have imagined, to finish my masters degree and eventually to find a job that has been a pretty big blessing in itself.

There’s a reason I take the glass half full approach to life – because without that outlook – I would never have been able to see the good things – the GREAT things going on around me.

Crazy to think how different things are today then they were a year ago. Crazy and amazing and wonderful.

A year isn’t all that long in the grand scheme of things, but it’s been a pretty good year despite all the challenges.  It wouldn’t have been nearly as good with out all of the support I have in my life, so thanks for hanging in there with me.

I have often felt that way since I was laid off in June. Sometimes, bad things can turn into good things. I must say you really took advantage of the time and really Carpe Diem'ed! :-)
