I have now, for two weeks, been spring cleaning our house with my husband who was laid off from his corporate job less than a month ago.
(Is it a blessing in disguise? Is it meant to be? Is it destiny? The jury is still out.)
We have bought shrubs and flowers and mopped and folded, we have placed things (we are not willing to get rid of ) up safely in Rubbermaid tubs for future times.
Our garage is clean enough for kids to move quickly back and forth from the back yard to the front with water guns and Yoohoo’s.
We still have so much more to do.
Life at the “white house” is moving and grooving, shaking and making all kinds of change.
As we work we talk.
What are we going to do?
How are we going to take this opportunity and make it right, make it make a difference?
Life hands out start over cards only so often and we GOT one.
Is it like hitting the lottery?
Hard to say.
If it turns out for the best it is sure to be as good as a lottery ticket.
If it turns out disastrous then it’s will be more like discovery the road to hell.
Our talks have led to many nostalgic memories of days gone by
creative dreams of what may come.
We talk of all kinds of ways to LIVE.
We ask each other how much is ENOUGH?
What kind of lifestyle do we WANT to LIVE and what kind TAKES over when you aren’t looking? Sometimes our eyes are bigger than our happiness, you know what I mean?
We talk of PASSION
We talk about DREAM jobs.
Staying OPEN to what fly’s our of our mouth is at times the biggest challenge. At one point we found our party of five running a winery in Caribou Maine while home schooling our children and living off the land.
Life is so full of choices.
There are SO many lives to live.
Unfortunately, there is only ONE time around.
It makes you think when you think about it like that.
A quote by Emily Dickenson comes to mind
” That it will never come again is what makes life so sweet.”
This is an ongoing project
“following our bliss”
I will leave for now, but be rest assured I will keep all of you POSTED.
