And Then the Sun Came Out

A couple of days ago, I wrote a blog post but decided to delete it. You see, one of my goals in blogging is to keep a positive mindset. I had gone through a couple of rough days where doubts were filling my head. A series of negative events, which were mostly beyond my control, had brought me down. I then began to question my choice to make an out-of-state move and start a new career as an entrepreneur.

We’ve all been there. You know how it feels when you are at rock-bottom. You know it will end, but the pain and the fear are so very real at the time. Usually, it just takes someone or something to pull you out of it.

I can’t tell you exactly what it was. Maybe it was my super-positive new friend with whom I spent some time yesterday morning. Maybe it was the book I read last night that got me thinking about my hopes for the future. Maybe it was my new neighbor waving her hands to get my attention this afternoon, just because she wanted to say hello as I was walking by. Maybe it was all of those things that made me realize life is pretty darn good right now.

Change can be scary, but it can also be so very wonderful. After chatting with my neighbor, I continued walking with a grateful heart, taking in the mountain views that attracted me to Montana. My tension eased as I realized I was back to being myself; the late summer afternoon sun had never felt better.

  1. Thanks for posting this. I have been down recently due to my position ending at Boeing. While I would like for this long (full year) drawn out ending to be over, I do need to keep a positive attitude. I need to move forward until my end date in January and then make the best of retirement.

    I’m impressed with all that you have accomplished, your ability to make new friends and your ambition to forge a life in a new place. Well done!

    As always, I will look forward to your next post. They are informative, interesting and insightful.



    1. Thanks for sharing, Kirk, and thank you for the compliments. There is definitely light at the end of the tunnel; January will be here soon! I look forward to finding out what is next for you.
