Celebrating Life, Love and Enough

imageLife is a complicated, messy affair that rarely takes us where we planned to go. The best discoveries are on the accidental journey. This week I’ve been focussing on seeing where the breeze takes me while still making deadlines. I’m celebrating the small things that make up the bulk of life.

1. I’m celebrating two years today at the Bay Beacon newspapers. This has been the hardest job I have ever done, and it’s easily been the best. When I walked through those doors I thought I was pretty smart. Now, two years later, I’m smart enough to realize what I don’t know. Yet.

2. I’m celebrating that I am alive, healthy, my family is healthy and that we have jobs. We aren’t wealthy, but we have enough. I’m grateful for enough.

3. I am celebrating making new friends and reconnecting with old friends.

What are you celebrating?

    Congrats on two years at your job! And you’re right about learning. The more I learn about writing – the more nit-picky I get with myself. Nothing’s ever good enough. But we keep on going, and learning, and improving. It’s great that everyone has a job and their health – truly something to be thankful for. Yay for connecting with friends, old and new! Have a lovely weekend. :)

    It’s a pleasure to read your celebrations. I’m often forgetful of having enough. How reall and humbling is that? Congratulations on your two years! I hope your weekend is lovely.
