My grandpa passed away quite suddenly in June 2012. His death threw my life into some sort of weird alternate universe. I seemed to be floating, not quite sure where I was going to land. Throw in to that mix a sudden decision to leave my job in early November and focus on blogging, my social media career, writing my book, a total change to my daily schedule, the crazy holiday season and suddenly here we are in 2013. Wow. I've had some time recently to think about my life, my direction, my focus and I feel at peace with the decisions I've made. Yes, there were changes. And although some of the changes made have not been positive and many were out of my control, they have all brought me to the place where I am today.
"Opportunity often comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat." -Napoleon Hill
I am in a good place now. I feel calm. I feel in control. I embrace the change.
