Pursuing a Life Well Lived
You may be looking at that picture over there and thinking, she doesn’t look like a woman on fire, she looks quite ordinary. Ahhhh, but you are going to have to use your x-ray vision to see the fire burning inside my heart, soul and mind. I have big ideas, big dreams and I consider life one big adventure, even in the midst of ordinary days.
I have some news for you though, the woman in that picture, she’s dying. Don’t feel sad for me. I just mean she is dying to her former self and becoming a woman anew. The first chapter of my life is ending. My life is changing, bigger than it has ever changed before. I can feel that change is nigh. I am emerging from my cocoon a butterfly. I am being released from the chains that once held my freedom.
God is using me in this season to be a good wife to my husband and mother to my five children. I have been married over 10 years, and I am mothering a pre-teen girl, and four boys, which includes two toddlers and a baby. I am a homemaker and a homeschooling mom.
I have been blogging over 10 years as well, and I’m embarking on a new blog-venture with this new blog called “Everba”- “Everyday Blessings Ablaze.”
With this blog I want to share with you my journey, as I get to know the new me, the woman I am becoming. I am at the point in time of my life where I can still see who I was, but I don’t think, feel or act like her anymore. I am at the beginning of a new road, taking it one step at a time, not looking back, but looking at what’s ahead.
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” (Lao Tzu). Walk with me. Sometimes even dance with me. Sit back and enjoy the ride. It’s fabulous!
