There you are with your plan laid out before you. You think you know exactly where you’re going and who you’ll be. It’s true- when you plan God laughs.
I never imagined I’d be living in NY, much less the North. I was raised in the South most my life. Always imagined buying a country property down there. I had my son and realized the importance of family when raising a child. Daycare before he could talk wasn’t appealing to me as a first time parent. Just didn’t feel right. So I moved closer to the people I trusted, my family. No, it wasn’t what I hoped for... But I realized a ‘place’ wasn’t my home, my son was my ‘home’. You’re stronger than you think and we, as humans, are made to thrive when challenged with change.
Turns out things worked out for the better. My son is happy, I have a great job, I purchased that farmhouse in the country just in the mountains of NY instead, and I’ve found my purpose through this business. Life is good due to one thing... Faith.
I always tell people that God’s got a beautiful plan for you better than you can imagine for yourself.
Embrace your monkey wrenches.
Accept that you weren’t meant to walk this Earth alone.
Have faith you’ll end up where you belong with those that love you.
