At this moment, everything is perfect

It’s raining a heavy, late summer rain out my windows. Inside my oven are cookies upon cookies. At this very moment, it seems that everything is in love with each other.

I’ve said it before, but this time I really mean it, tomorrow will be the end of a very tough couple of weeks at work. I’m not sure what this keeps building up to. I’m being challenged in ways that are new to me and I’m left frustrated at the end of the day (typically a very long day) and further behind than I was that morning. Surely this is not what everyone who tries to advance their career goes through… is it? Are we all left to deal with difficult situations/people/places/things? Do we all feel like we’re thrown a problem that has no solution?

I know that I’m headed in the direction I want to go. Everyday I love my job but everyday I’m left frustrated and tired. I’ll get there and I’ll be amazing on the other side. It’s just going to take some tough licks along the way.

Thankfully, along the way, there are rainy evenings spent indoors baking chocolate chip cookies. Along the way there are days spent behind some knitting needles creating cozy things to keep me warm during the upcoming winter. Thankfully, along the way, there are lazy afternoons spent cuddled on the couch with the Sweet Boy and the Schmoo napping. And thankfully, along the way, there is family and best friends encouraging me as I go.

So all of this to say, even amongst the crazy, the frustrating, and when you feel you just can’t take another step, there is always that late summer rain to wash away the negative and bring forth the sweet moments. Take time to dwell on the sweet and forget about the other.
