A few days ago, my daughters’ school held a special day where the kids were to come in dressed as what they want to be when they grow up. I loved the idea and was excited to hear what my girls were interested in. I was elated to see that they are indeed their mother’s daughters. They came barrelling at me with idea after idea. I couldn’t help but beam with pride. I remember having so many ideas of what I wanted to be when I grew up: a reporter, a writer, a mother, and more. My reminiscing was cut short by one of my daughters asking me a question. “How do I pick just one thing to be?”
When I was in my 20’s I experienced a major health crises. In fact, I was so sick that my doctors told me that I might not make it through the day. Have you ever been told that you might not make it through the day? Think about that for a minute… How does that make you feel?
The death of a loved one is a very painful reminder that life is way, way too short. I remember my friends telling me to focus on my job, so that I get over that period after my father’s death. And I did. I went to my job every single day to keep myself busy. And you know what?...

I recall a time when severe heart pains shot through my chest and startled me out of a deep sleep. This happened so often that I scheduled a doctor’s appointment. Surely, something was horribly wrong with my heart. Although my test results returned normal I didn’t feel fine. I had a beautiful life by society’s standards —a husband, 2 children, a house, and a “good” job. However, I worked long hours, I never saw my children, and my marriage was strained. My work no longer fulfilled me, my husband no longer fulfilled me, and my beliefs no longer fulfilled me. The song that sang inside of my head was sad and melancholic. Occasionally, what I thought was joy would surface but it would quickly dissipate into my dark and gloomy thoughts... I do whatever it takes to change my thoughts (sing, read, watch a good comedy) and when I shift my thoughts my mood follows. You can do this too.
