Yes, you read that correctly, part 1.5.
In my last blog, Part 1, I shared this: For about a year prior to his passing, we began to dream big, and decided to live large, as our children had all made it to adult-hood.
Today’s post is more about living life out loud, and what that looks like in my world. Over the past couple of months, I have felt that, in relationship to ‘why’ I am involved in Beautycounter.
In November, I felt that my why was no longer real. Didn’t seem real to me, and, if it doesn’t seem real to me, how could it sound real to others? As I considered that thought, I began to re-word my ‘why’, a portion of it looks like this:
As Ted was retired, we believed that with my income from Beautycounter, we would plan to travel, and live out loud the rest of our lives – however, that plan changed, when he passed away in October of 2013. To say that altered my life, would be an understatement, but to honor his memory, my income with Beautycounter is allowing me to pay it forward into areas of giving that Ted held close to his heart, and also give me the opportunity to ‘live our list’,,,
I must confess, when I began to re-work my ‘why’, I had not officially been named the recipient of the Live The List . I was hopeful, but, hadn’t been officially named. I’m excited to face that challenge, alone, but, not alone, as I know I have the backing of so many widows and widowers who have walked the same path.
I’m also looking forward to 2016 with a new perspective, a new chance to live out loud, pursue my business with passion (re-fired), and continue to discover ‘me’!
What about you? What do you look forward to as 2016 peers down upon us all.
My prayer for you is if you’ve lost your compass, that you find a new strength, a new purpose, a new hope.
An update on my Scuba Adventure ~ the plan is to begin my lessons soon after the 1st of the year, so – next week!! I’m pretty doggone excited, and am looking forward to you to continue the journey with me!
Growing in Grace,
