What is the purpose of my life?

I woke up this morning feeling pretty good. I changed my clothes, brushed my teeth, brushed my hair and brought the laundry down. Then, the day changed. We get a little rain in our basement when it rains, and it rained hard last night. I have a room called the “locked room”. It’s our food pantry and where I keep all of the decorations and around Christmas, where all of the Christmas gifts are kept. We used to lock it when the kids were little around the holidays, hence “locked room”. I haven’t locked that room in probably 15 years though. Anyways, I went to start laundry and we had gotten some rain seepage. I would normally care but I’ve started Christmas shopping and all of the gifts are being sorted in those great Cracker Barrel bags…..on the floor…..where the water came in! Ugh! I knew that I should have gotten up when my husband left for work to go check the basement, but my bed was very comfortable. I had a bad day yesterday and just wanted to sleep until 6 a.m. today. So of course, my mood changed. That’s when the dark moments creep in for me. I immediately wanted to just go back to bed for the day, but I do have to work. So, I start the routine of talking myself out of a hole. It generally starts with what is the purpose? Why continue? That has been my biggest struggle this year. My kids have left, and they were my purpose for 28 years. You might be thinking about my husband, my job, my house, my pets – well, they would all survive without me. My kids, however, NEEDED me. And I needed them. So, as I sorted the laundry and thought about this blog and started talking myself out of a hole, my mood switched because I have new purposes. One of those is this blog. I am happy to have this blog, if only for myself.

I switched my desk calendar today and the perfect quote came up on yesterday’s date – The best view comes after the hardest climb. That pretty much sums it up. I had a very hard day yesterday, that snuck into this morning but then I climbed up and out and the view I am looking at is much better! It’s a NEW day and I can make anything out of this new day. So, can you! Enjoy the climb.
