You are blessed.

It hit me the other day that I wasn’t blessed.

It hit me that amidst the craziness of entrepreneurship and motherhood and being an author in the making I felt this calm; calm amidst the storm, can you believe it?

I was blissed.

Our perspective in it being either a full time j-o-b or a full time LIFE is where the re-framing lies. Gratitude (hello, bliss) is seriously just a thought away…

Enjoy it because you’re closer to it in -5-4-3-2-1…
