Gratitude Diaries: Day 20 and 21

I missed last night’s gratitude post.  We were out all day and then had a Clipper game in the evening.  By the time we got back, I went straight to bed and forgot about it. ;0

I am grateful for…

… marriage and the hubby (we went to a wedding).

… our friends who lived 10 minutes away from the wedding and graciously let us in to change from wedding clothes to basketball clothes.  (even though they are Laker fans).

… coffee because without it, we would have passed out at halftime.

A couple of months ago, I applied to be part of this mastermind.  I was interviewed and everything.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t picked to be part of the group.  I was sad.  There were only 10 or so available spots so I hoped to be part of the next mastermind that was put together.  Over the weekend, I received an email that one of the original participants couldn’t join and they asked me if I would consider joining.  I am so excited and grateful on so many levels!  Grateful to the person who couldn’t join.  Grateful to the leader who thought of me.  Grateful for the opportunities that were not in my world just a few days ago.

The funny thing is, I’ve been feeling a little down lately.  I’m coming into my 10th year of having my company.  While we’ve grown in so many ways, the company and I are not where I imagined we would be.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful for where we are and what has been accomplished these last 10 years.  It’s allowed me and my husband to be home with the kids and have flexible schedules.  But I’m looking forward and I realized that I cannot continue doing what I’m doing at the pace I’m doing it.  Something needs to change and I’m not sure how or where that change is going to happen.  Before I learned about the mastermind, I enrolled in an online class to start the process of finishing a program I started a long time ago.  My purpose for taking the class is to reacquaint me to studying, using my fancy calculator, and remind me how to take exams again.  I’ve gone through 2 of the 12 sections already and while I’m rusty, I am feeling good.  I am feeling like I’m heading in the right direction again.  I am grateful for pushing myself past the questions and self-doubt, and just taking this one step. I am grateful to the husband who supports all my decisions even when I pester him with talk. ;0

Have a good evening!
