I was reminded today that life is unpredictable. Because it’s chaotic, crazy and wonderful. I know I can get so swept up into my daily routine, a routine I’ve built my life and my family’s life around. Entirely. And in an instant it can change. Poof.

pathOften there’s no warning, no explanation. And it’s scary as hell. Today started off as normal. I woke up, recorded the 3 things I’m grateful for, took a shower, jotted down my daily to do list. Writing my blog was at the top – and I had a nice outline for what I wanted to write about. I was excited to share the story I had prepared.

But then: BAM! Life changed. And I was faced with possibly restructuring everything I know. I sat frozen for an hour, not sure which way to turn. Suddenly that blog I had prepared didn’t feel right anymore. I couldn’t complete anything on my list, and as a Virgo, that’s extremely unusual. It was disorienting.

In the end I got lucky, but I can’t say that for everyone I care about. Things are still up in the air, but not in a bad way. It will work out for me. And I’m grateful for that. And it makes me wonder what other great, big, scary and amazing things are out there for me. At times like these, I like to remind myself to enjoy the journey that life is and maybe take an unexpected path once in a while. Hey, you never know how it will turn out.


  1. Enjoy the journey – you have been a delightful part of mine and I will always smile when I think of how you greeted my days with humor and grace. You are a delightful talent who made me smile because of your charisma and I wish you well on all your ambitious endeavors! Xx
