All in the chase of money, a better life for my kid, a good home for my kid and inherited teen, peace of mind for me (if there is such a thing.)
I am exhausted. But also…
I am grateful for…
Being able to walk the dog and see the sun on the lake at 5a.m.
Being able to give the kids food and a clean home.
Having a job that is creative and fun.
Having wonderful students I can teach yoga to.
Having a roof over my head and a yard to take care of.
Having opportunities to do freelance work so I can take my family on vacations and adventures.
I am grateful for everything that I have been blessed with, all the challenges that make me stronger, and all the love I am showered with from my cat, foster dog, inherited teen and darling daughter. My life might not be exactly what I thought it would be, but it is the perfect life for me.
