It also did not hurt that the apple picking adventure we set out on turned in to discovering a winery 5 miles from my home that was hosting a fall festival.
I am in a position now that if I let myself I can just sit back and let things unfold. I am doing some of that but I am also ensuring that I am an active participant in this unfolding. I am deciding to not curl up on the couch and watch TV all day (thought there are days when that is tempting) and to still connect with the people in "my village" no matter how near or far they may be. I am surrounding myself with positive, enriching people and seeking out opportunities that will allow me to figure out my next course of action. Some of these opportunities may seem unconventional; driving 2 little girls to school once a week, cleaning the yoga studio, volunteering at a local food pantry and working a seasonal retail job. I am learning incredible lessons from all of these things and will be sharing more about these in posts to come. Who do you connect with that affirms something in your life, your worth or the work that you choose to do? Seek those people out and surround yourself with that positivity.
