Today, I'm back in Philadelphia after spending a wonderful weekend in Indianapolis. My parents moved there while I was in college and even though I've never lived there personally, it always feels like home when I'm back in that city. Have you ever been there? The people are so friendly. They smile and say hello to you at the super market... and when you're driving on the highway? They actually wave you into their lane if you put on your blinker. How remarkable. Do you live in a friendly city? If you do, please share!
And, today I am grateful. Grateful for my health, my husband, my dear friends, my loving family. I'm grateful that I found my passion early in life, I acted on it, and now I'm working in an industry that I adore. I'm thankful to be building a business that is completely mine. I'm thankful for my amazing clients who allow me to provide input on their gorgeous homes. I love working with nice people. I'm thankful for you, my insightful readers. Reading your comments and getting your emails makes this blogging thing a whole lot of fun. :) So, thank you. I'm grateful for you.
Sometimes, I get caught up in the daily stresses, deadlines, and never ending to-do lists. I worry about our home renovation, when it will end, how much it will cost, when we'll be able to get started on this or that project. I forget where I put things, sometimes I'm late, and I worry that I'm doing it all wrong. But, I'm not. Everything is fine and sometimes, I just need to stop and breathe. Everyone has their own journey. We all get to where we're going at some point. I just need to stay on track. Stay focused and take one day at a time.
