There are days when it seems impossible to be thrilled by anything, when a perverse dreariness holds the mind; and then all of a sudden the gentle and wistful mood flows back, and the world is full of beauty to the brim. A.C. Benson
Recently I was challenged to not let my thoughts overtake my moods and actions. Honestly I will admit I failed miserably. So caught up in my nightmare of animosity and change that I obsessed endlessly of the outcome that was to be mine and my families life. For days even months sleep was fleeting and stress seemed to be the norm and not just an occasional thing.
Life has been so very good to me. I have always felt a higher power watching over me, creating amazing opportunities at just the right moment or teaching me lessons right when I was ready to learn them. So in this regard I have always believed "things happen for a reason" and "what is meant to be will be". So where did my faith go?? I was so caught up in wanting my life the way I wanted it to be. I still wanted my garden, my chickens and a studio for my jewelry business. What was going to be the outcome? I am not a very patient person for sure and hated the waiting and not knowing, the feeling of being totally out of control of my life was NOT an option for me.
