Ideally, I will be able to jump on here and write as if nobody will ever read my thoughts. I will still go back and correct the errors (I always think of “the diary of Anne Frank” and how she never expected anyone to find her diary!). I will strive not to strive for perfection! Lol! I will do my best to remember that this whole exercise in blogging on a regular basis is an attempt to find out if it works the same as journaling on a daily basis. Does it help me sort and organize my thoughts resulting in serenity, clarity, and compassion towards myself and others? The thing about journaling regularly is that I tend to always journal when I’m angry and do not write much at all when I’m simply grateful. Fortunately, I’m not angry very often these days. There it is! I did not realize that until it was in front of me. This is a good sign that the blog will work as well as a journal. Wonderful! Now, if I can just not get lost.

Trying to embrace my life as it is today. Which is lacking direction. I am grateful not to be floundering. Even though I do not know where I am going after grad school, does not mean that I am lost. Most days, I forget to stop and breathe, much less embrace anything or appreciate the gratitude. For 19 years, I have been the single mother of one beautiful and talented daughter. It has always been the two of us, growing up together, and now she is 6 hours away, learning about the next phase of her life. I love that she is independent and brave enough to strike out on her own to develop her talent. She is smart and talented enough to get scholarships to her chosen school. When she left for school, I decided to go back and pursue my interest in technology. Of course, having been laid off and not sure where I wanted to go next was perfectly times, as well. I was trying to avoid the drift into the fog while waiting to see which path will be my next big adventure. There is no fog, though. Maybe because I am at peace for both of us because I know I did my best while she was home with me. Now, we’re friends, too. I love that I hear from her more now with actual phone calls than I ever did when she lived here and I spent a lot of time texting! Lol! Although I do not know what lies ahead, I believe, I trust, that my higher power will take care of everything and OH! she always does such a better job than I do. It will be another adventure worth adding to my book one day. View all posts by DianeOfRose
