life interrupted...

...back to my post yesterday about life interrupted... it reminded me of the discussion at church this weekend about life and how NO ONE plans for interruptions. people can try but you can't predict the future. for example, i am someone who works out a lot and my health is fairly good but there are no promises that i won't get hit by a car tomorrow. i can't live life in fear like that. life is full of interruptions - the best question is what do you do with them? do you embrace them and challenge yourself and grow? or do you find yourself back in the same place over and over?

...i will be honest, working with MR full time was sort of an interruption. i was at a great job and was pulling somewhere near the 6 figure salary. i was headed somewhere to the top but then came MR and a sort of interruption. it wasn't easy to give up the status quo - to jump into something that while i know fulfills the heart, doesn't offer the safe space.

...but if i didn't do this, where would we be? we reached a point where deb and i couldn't handle this all part way, we had to start giving 120%. so here we are and on we go...

I think it takes a lot of faith and trust to step out like that, to not be as 'comfortable' any more. It's one of those things that is so hard to do but is worth it in the end. It's like moving to another city, in some ways - having to make new friends, find new places, live in a new community, hard at first but worth it in the end. You should be so proud of yourself for what you have done, Caroline! Give yourself a big pat on the back from me (and one for your sister too!).

Caroline - love this post today. It is something I hadn't thought about, but it rings true for me. Thanks for giving me something {else} to think about.
And for the record, I am so glad that MR interrupted your life. :)
