March Madness - Day 4

Be Spontaneous! It can open your eyes to new things!

When was the last time you did something without a plan?

Sometimes our lives get so regimented that we run on auto pilot. I'm sure you've been there before.

  • It's the place where you get where you're going with no thought. You take the same route over and over and rarely deviate. 
  • It's the marriage where's you co-exist in the same house but it doesn't feel like home. You know what needs to get done and it happens, sometimes taking your spouse for granted. 
  • It's the parent who raises all of his/her children the same way. The parent fails to take into account that each child is an individual and may need something different. 

Auto pilot can be a good thing....at times. But only sometimes.

There is a whole world of experience and excitement that we miss out on when we fail to change things up.

If you're anything like me, you don't like change.

However, I'm learning that change is inevitable. Most importantly, there's so much life and opportunity waiting for you on the other end of change.

Over the past month, I have experienced a change in job, residence, and family circumstance. It's a lot of change all at one time, but I wouldn't have it any other way. My mind is open like never before.

That's what happens when you decide to do something that is not all the way thought through.

YOU SHIFT!

I don't know how long we can pay to run two households.
I don't know how long we can all be apart from each other.
I don't know where I will live in 45 days.
I don't know where the kids will attend school next year.

All I know is that we are LIVING IN THE MOMENT....TODAY!

That's what spontaneity is all about.

What can you do today that's spontaneous?

March Madness - Day 5

My marriage is important because....
It's the thing that has kept me grounded for more than 10 years.

I had no idea what to expect regarding the Tallahassee heat and humidity. I quickly found out all about it since my move to Florida occurred during mid-summer. I landed in Florida on Sunday, July 16, 2006. Since I didn't start classes until August, I had a month or so to get acclimated to the area and to run errands. I needed to find a daycare, drive by schools, and establish residency. All of this was to be done with three kids in toe, all under the age of five.

I was up to the challenge. One afternoon in August, we were headed out for errands. Once I got to the car, I realized that I didn't have any water. I ran back upstairs to our apartment. When I opened the freezer to reach for a bottle of ice cold water, I was stopped in my tracks by a ring box and a note.

Yes! This man left his family behind for me.
Yes! This man spent 6 weeks alone in Tallahassee to set a foundati…
