journey of doing »

It is done.

And this weekend?  I slept the sleep of the dead.

I’ve been in meetings for weeks.  I’ve been collecting information, analyzing data, and considering what direction my leadership needs to go as we embark on some new and exciting things.

I had to make painful and agonizing decisions.

And now, they are done.

I know that I did the right thing, but oh my stars, life has been hard lately.

Yesterday I boarded a plane for the middle-of-nowhere California to present at a conference and be surrounded by people who believe in me.  And people I love.  And people who challenge me.

I’m looking forward to that.

I’ll be back in Dallas on Wednesday night – just in time to start a staff retreat designed to reignite the positivity and the dreams I had for my organization when I decided to take it on.

I’m looking forward to that, too.

In other news, the dry cleaner ruined one of my favorite dresses.  I knew I should have bought another one when I found it at TJ Maxx a few months ago.  I went on a search for it on Saturday, and while I didn’t find it, I did find two of my favorite Kate Spade shirts that work great with leggings, jeans, and shorts, so that was exciting.


I feel like there should be more to say, but there’s not actually.  I’ve had lyrics on the brain for awhile though – so I’ll leave you with a couple snippets of songs that I’ve been playing on repeat.

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
And each road leads you where you wanna go,
And if you’re faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin’ till you find the window,
If it’s cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile.
But more than anything, more than anything
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.
-My Wish, Rascal Flatts

I don’t like my mind right now
Stacking up problems that are so unnecessary
Wish that I could slow things down
I wanna let go but there’s comfort in the panic
And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything’s about me
Yeah, I drive myself crazy
‘Cause I can’t escape the gravity

I’m holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Holding on
So much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what’s bringing me down
If I just let go, I’d be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy?

-Heavy, Linkin Park
