I’ve been on the journey of self reflection for almost a month. And I know I’m not the only the person to ever think about the phrase…Life is a work in progress. Which is pretty accurate at this point in my life. There are things I can for certain say make up who I am and make me happy. There are things I am trying to figure out if there is a place for them in life or if I need to let it go. And then there are things I wish would happen in my life but have learned to give it up to God and the Universe and everything will work out as it should…I have to have trust and faith. Everything happens for a reason.
Case in point…I thought I wasn’t going to have everything I needed ready for the teachers for the first day of school, but I actually finished it today before I left work. I can give it to them tomorrow. I was so worried about this since our caseload increased by about 40 kids and our copier was acting up when I returned to work, which I also use as my printer, but everything turned out okay. I had to change how I usually do these things to have everything ready for the first day of school, but it made better and more efficient. In fact, everything has gone very smoothly at work leading up to the craziness of the first week of school.
This small situation showed me change can be good. That being on this journey of self reflection is good. I went for a bike ride yesterday. As I rode through a nearby trail through the woods, I startled a deer. I kept riding being mindful of where the deer was. The two of us reached a clearing and the deer stopped to look at me before going into the next wooded area. It was just a wonderful moment. I think it was God and the Universe trying to tell me things will happen to throw you off…it’s how you adapt that will make you stronger and that trust and faith are also important parts of making you stronger.
