I’m not going to lie, I was completely lost when I started working on this blog a couple of weeks ago. It is still very much a work in progress, but I’ve made my mind up that I’m going to learn how to create and modify it all on my own. Back twelve years ago, I was working on websites like a rockstar making my changes and edits on Microsoft FrontPage. Then…I don’t know what happened, apparently I went on some hiatus and woke up and Microsoft FrontPage was now obsolete and people are raving about the latest tweet or instagram post. Well, I do know what happened. Life happened, I just didn’t realize how much and how quickly time has been flying by. Two kids and three jobs later, now I’m sitting here drinking my coffee wondering who I am now and what’s next in life. It’s five days before my 32nd birthday and it feels like my biological clock to get up and accomplish something is ticking on overtime. Maybe it should be enough that I am at home raising two awesome kids and that I am the head chef, 24/7 chauffeur, queen of the laundry and head organizer of all things. That’s what this picture is all about. It’s just a basic shot with my iPhone of the field outside my kitchen window and serves as a reminder to me that I need to sit back, relax and take life in. It’s okay to be where I am in life, and that each day I am accomplishing more than I realize. My Aunt writes down each day five things she is thankful for. I think this is a great idea, as there is always something to be thankful for. I think we often forget and take for granted all of the great people and things we have in our lives. We may be incredibly envious of another’s life, while we may have others who would line up a mile deep to walk in our shoes. So as I figure out what’s next in life, I’m going to continue looking out my kitchen window and reminding myself that I am enough and how greatful I am for the people and things in my life. Maybe this Rural life isn’t so bad after all.
