I woke up this morning at 3:45. I can honestly tell you I was exhausted. (I’ve just finished my 21 day straight working marathon and have the day off tomorrow. Yay! ) I skipped the shower and went straight to putting my hair in a bun for work. But my hair had a mind of its own. No matter how many bobby pins I stuck in it the hairs in the middle just stick straight up. It reminded me a little of Pebbles from the Flintstones, remember that show? But at this time in the morning my hair was up and that’s all that mattered.
It’s crazy to think that a month ago I was sleeping in til 10 most days. A month ago I was nervously waiting for a reply after the interview. A month ago I had 5 day weekends. A month ago I was eagerly awaiting the moment that we could move back to the states. So much can change in a month.
It only takes one moment for everything to change. I can either let that scare me or drive me. I don’t know how long I will be living in Switzerland. I don’t know how long I will be able to be Benjy’s nanny’. I don’t know how long I’ll be working at the mermaid house. I don’t know how many more small group meeting we’ll have with our friends. There are so many amazing things in life to enjoy and thrive in right now. So many things that I don’t want to change. But they will change because that’s how life works.
I’m learning to embrace the present and not fear the future.
