Have you ever driven across Texas? Recently, I drove to Elk City, Oklahoma from Boerne, Texas and let me tell you, that was one of the most beautiful drives I have seen in a while. Wide open spaces and small towns, I couldn’t get enough. If I hadn’t been in a time crunch, I would have pulled over every few miles just for pictures. I have always imagined living somewhere close to the coast, but this trip had me reconsidering things.
This trip was a special one for me. There were moments of clarity, peace, and happiness. Watching all those fields as I drove by, I was overjoyed. After years and years of working hard and multiple jobs, I finally felt like I had made it. I have a job I truly love and one that enables me to do all the things I love. From writing, to taking pictures, to presenting and being on the road. To learning new things and stepping more and more outside my comfort zone each day.
Good things do happen to those that work hard and every step of my journey has been worth it. I have either gotten older and wiser or I have had a lot of growth over the last year but life is peaceful. The kind of peaceful where no matter how many million of things you have going on, you know you can do it. Where the things you were worried about before, no longer seem to be an issue. The faith that you are on the right path and amazing things are going to keep coming your way, like an 8 hour car ride that lights your soul on fire.
If you are going through a rough patch, hang in there. Things will get better. Keep the right mindset, and you will be amazed at what happens. Find your people, your supporters, your cheerleaders and watch as your life will start to change.
As always share some love, we could all use a little more love
