This morning, I woke up with a killer headache. As the reality of getting up to fix school lunches, take the dog outside to poo, and feeding Ella breakfast loomed over me, I muttered to Rhett, "I'll give you a hundred bucks if you let me sleep in." I would have offered a thousand bucks if we had it. And, sweetly, he let me sleep for free. And I slept until 8:30 am. And then, he gently woke me up, and my headache was gone. That was a nice way to hit the "rewind" button and start over again.
At this very moment, I'm sitting here avoiding the work that I get paid for... web development. I need to stop goofing off and get to work already. There is money to be made! And clients to satisfy! And all I have to do is refill my coffee cup, turn on my iPod, and GET. TO. IT.
Truth be told, my iPod has been blasting away for a while already. This song came up in my playlist, and I had to share.
I love this song. I love this version. New beginnings. Fresh starts. Being bold. I want to be bold.
Rhett's new job isn't just an opportunity for him. It's an opportunity for our entire family. It feels like a fresh start for all of us, really. We now have some stability again. We have a better foundation in which to build our future upon. And selfishly, this gives me the chance to figure out MY next move. Do I expand my business? Do I pull out all the stops to become a *gasp* professional blogger? Do I take classes somewhere and learn something entirely new that makes my heart sing? The options and opportunities are wide open. I can be bold... if I have the guts.
I'm excited for this new chapter. Truly. I feel like it's going to be GREAT.
