I’m reminded of the blessing of having a very multifaceted life when I look at my ring shots. Something about the moments I take at weddings and engagement sessions to focus on this little physical detail which encompasses at once the eternity of the promise as well as the earthbound nature of it’s whisperers.
Office life has improved in the last week, leaving me with mental room for the things that matter to me. I spent time reading, sleeping and simply existing without the heavy burden of stress. You don’t realize how good you have it until you don’t. I’m hopeful for the future but there’s part of my career in my past now, a part that I loved, and I am still glancing over my shoulder. I’m reminded of two of my favorite quotes in those small moments of weakness.
â€œLife is what you make it. Always has been, always will be.â€
â€• Eleanor Roosevelt
â€œI can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.
â€• Maya Angelou, Letter to My Daughter
I’m focusing on adapting and absorbing. All new things are a chance for growth and you have to wade somewhat blindly through discomfort and frustration before you can really make use of that chance.
Until next time-
