There are so many plans in the works to change my life. Our lives, Ed and me. Plans to cut my work hours and increase income. Tomorrow I will put my notice in, to change status and my current job, while going in to start on my new job.
While trying to work less, I have actually been working more. This doesn't mean I'm off course, it just means the sunshine is, right now, above clouds and rain. Here in Florida, you can often see the rain coming as a wall, down the street. One minute the sun is blazing, the next the rain is pouring.
Life is a lot like that too. Can't see the sun, for the rain. Still I know the sun is there. Always just above the clouds, ready to break through. I have to be willing to walk in the rain while waiting for the sun to shine.
Transition sometimes feels like a storm. I remember when I was a child, every so often, my mother would storm through the house, dumping drawers and emptying closets for a thourough cleaning. She would say, sometimes you need to make a mess to really get everything clean, she'd say. She was right.
We are cleaning out clutter, moving around furniture, changing jobs and paying off debt. All in preparation for a clutter free, debt free, life of freedom. In the mean time things look opposite of what we're trying to achieve.
Today I'm appreciating what we're going through, because, next year everything will be different. This is true for us all. In fact, one doesn't know what tomorrow will look like, let alone next year.
We can plan, set goals, work toward those goals while life happens. So, be happy whatever your situation, for tomorrow holds it's own troubles, miracles and mysteries.
Fantasizing the freedom thay lyes in appreciating where I am on the way to where I'm going.
