Life… it never goes as planned. Expect detours, dead ends, and everything else that blocks your path. In life, a big part of being content also means you have to be flexible. Go with the flow. Live each day like it’s your last because well, life is unpredictable and it could be! I don’t mean empty out your bank account on toys you’ve always wanted or to stop paying your bills. What I mean is live with no regrets. Be bold. Be daring. Say what you mean! Make the most out of every moment.
Never ever in my wildest dreams did I expect to be living in South Carolina in a house with my husband, 3 kids, and of course my 3 cats. I could be divorced right now. I could be in my pit of a home town feeling sorry for myself. There are so many things that I could be…
That’s where life came into play. I stopped expecting. I stop settling. I took responsibility for myself, my emotions, my actions, my flaws, my strengths – all of it.
I hope that I am able to teach all of my offspring this lesson, especially Snoochie. She’s not the same person she was 6 months ago. She’ll never be that person ago.
“Normal is boring,” I tell her. I do feel terrible though. While she was staying at the Behavioral Health Center one of her friends spread a lot of ugly rumors about her. The gossip caused some of Snoochie’s friends to become scared OF her. She lost a few friends because of this.
“Now you know who your true friends are,” I tell her. “They are the ones that stayed loyal to you. They are the ones that waited to hear your side of the story. They are the ones that prayed for you.” Those are the kind of friends worth having.
