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.

  • I had a conversation with my mom the other day.... well New Years Day. That people think of a year ahead, thinking they know what will come with their plans. A vacation, work schedule, school schedule. But so much can happen in a year that you don't expect ... its not really a start on Jan 1st or an end on December 31st - the whole thing is an adventure with many ups and downs that you have to just live for the happy moments, be strong with the sad ones and go with the flow on all of the surprises ... whatever they may bring or how they can change your expectations.

    You have an exciting journey in front of you, though! And I look forward to learning about your new book!
