April’s Random Ramblings

Today is my 335th day of daily posting. Back in 2020, right after the world shut down, I decided to create a gratitude journal. My goal was to journal daily for one month. Well, not even two weeks in, I had missed several days of journaling. Honestly, I just wasn’t dedicated to writing daily. It was one of those things someone suggested and I thought it would be fun. I just knew because I loved blogging, and had been journaling for years, it would come easy. Well, it didn’t. Actually, it was a struggle. I had taken on the task but my heart wasn’t in it.

Y’all, one thing I’ve learned over the years about taking on tasks and setting goals is my heart has to be in it. I don’t know about you, but when my heart isn’t in it, tasks and goals are rarely accomplished/achieved. With that said, if it’s something I really want.. you know, just can’t shake.. I don’t give up. I take breaks and try again.

Fun Fact – Thirty years ago, April 1992, I entered the Delayed Entry Program for the Air Force.

Next month my son will be graduating from high school and I feel like my life is starting over. As if I’ve been given a second chance – a fresh start. The dreams and goals I had back then haven’t really changed. They’ve just been on hold for 30 years. Talk about mind blowing to say 30 years. I’m not going to lie, I’m nervous; however, I’m also super excited! Y’all, why am I hearing “A Whole New World” from Aladdin playing in my head. Shaking my head.. My life.

Thanks for reading my ramblings. Enjoy your weekend!
