Tonight, when I put him to bed, he was crying and just wanted me, his momma, to hold him.  I sang to him for a while, our favorite song that I’ve been singing since the day he was born, and he snuggled into me- a beautiful and simple connection that we share.  It was… magnificant.  When I was done singing, he told me that he would never leave me and I promised that I would never leave him ever.  I kissed the tears off of his face, brushed the hair out of his eyes and wished him the most wonderful dreams a little boy could have.

Right now, my life is beautiful.

The past week at work has been a roller coaster that ended (or should I say began) on a great note.  A key team member quit (again), this time without notice, forcing me to step back into a roll that I do not love but will do for our team.  I had a very difficult meeting with my boss and he gave me a challenge: I have 90 days to prove that I’m the next CEO of his business.  I am so excited by this challenge, one that I’ve had all along but have not accepted until this week.  I am honored and motivated and intent upon success.  I feel… right.  I have changed my mindset and am conquering the world as a leader, and no longer a follower.  What a difference a mindset makes.  This meeting was the kick in the ass that I needed to push through the crappy place that I had nestled into.

Right now, my life is beautiful.

Tomorrow, it will be successful because I’m intent upon making it successful.
