This year I decided to keep an index card on my nightstand. On this card I write two sentences for each month. Sometimes it is my own thought or something I stumble on in a book. It could be a quote or just one word.
The purpose of these sentences is to remind me of how I want to live my life, who I want to be, what is important. I review it each night before sleep, sometimes again in the morning or whenever I feel the need to regain some focus.
In March when I watched Peyton Manning give his retirement speech one thing he said really stuck with me:
“Life is not shrinking for me; it’s morphing into a whole new world of possibilities.”
I LOVE this idea and I hope it is true for all of us!
My military life is way behind me and motherhood is being revamped with small child in school all day and becoming more independent all the time. I find myself wondering in which direction my life is going to go next. A whole world of possibilities await!
