Our lives are so filled with “to-dos” and “to-bes”. We have so many things to do and so many places to be. Until one day we are forced to slow down either by an illness, injury, or change of situation. This happen to me recently. I was so busy taking classes and helping my husband in our business that being busy became a way of life. No longer enough time to watch the sunset at the beach, no longer time to go to the gym , or just watch a movie. We were always so tired,
Then my classes ended and the business slowed down. My husband had to spend more time on the road with his primary job. I was left at home wondering what to do with myself. I experienced some disappointments with the career I was pursuing, so I started doubting my purpose in life. My life was quieting down.
In those quiet times, I began reflecting on what I really love to do. I love to write. Then I remembered the outline of a children’s book I have written down on a yellow pad in my file cabinet. I got it out and started working on it. I watched You-Tube videos about self publishing through Amazon. I will update everyone as I go through the process to let you know when I will be releasing my book.
This morning I read my friend Jaime’s success story about a journey she and her husband have been on and it inspired me to write this blog. Jaime, too, experienced a unexpected quiet time of life which changed her path. Read her story by following the link below.
So be thankful for the quiet times in life, for that is when you hear your soul
