You Can Only Lose Everything Once...

I realized something today... I can do ANYTHING. I had my life so perfectly planned out, everything was going to go exactly the way I wanted it to.

But then... Real life happened. And I ended up in Houston, Texas. Alone. And lost. Not geographically lost (although sometimes I am that too around here - it's a BIG city) but lost as in I have no idea what to do with my life.

I've been viewing this as a negative thing. I've seen it as my failure. I thought I had lost everything. And I had.

Buuuuut... This is a good thing. Because I am free to do anything.

I can start today and make my life whatever I want it to be.

What if I want to move? Or go to school? Or discover a new city? Or start a new job?

I can. It's a beautiful thing.

The truth is that I'm really not sure what it is that I want to do. But my options are almost unlimited.

I love that.

I'll let you know what I decide to do... the world is my playground, and I intend to have a wonderful time!


  1. What a beautiful post - so true!! Lovely blog.

  2. I was a single mom for a good period of time too - and after my marriage ended I literally gave myself the same "speech" above daily. Somedays I believed it - somedays the world got the best of me - but here I am several years later... happily in love (oh heck... sure there are days we want to smack each other), 5 beautiful kids, our own business... FREEDOM to do what we want.

    Love this!!
