My name is Julie.
My friends call me Jules.
But hey, that’s enough about me. Let’s talk about you.
But first I’m going to tell you a joke. Ready? How does a selfish person change a light bulb? He doesn’t. He stands on a ladder, holds the bulb and waits for the world to spin around him.
Ba da dum.
How are you and your life and your family and your dog and your business and your kids and your car and your life? Are you happy?
There are going to be a couple of friends reading this shaking their heads thinking, wow, Julie wrote something new. She’s been advertising fresh blog copy for the last four years and every time I click on her about page it’s the exact same.
You might be asking yourself, wow, why is she writing under her about page.
Well, like I said, this isn’t about me. It’s about you.
So I thought, hey, time for a little fresh writing here.
Who are you? You are that person who has a list that is three pages long. You are that person who is juggling a relationship, a cold, a couple of classes, a meeting, a high point and a low point.
And all in all, guess, what, friend?
You are doing it.
Here and now. You sit here and you read and you think and you stop, I managed.
Dayz go buy, sun rises, sun sets, and life goes on.
When it becomes a miracle however, completely depends only on one situation: you. Sitting. Here. Now. In. Gratitude.
and thinking to your little self, self, look out that window. Lace. Your. Shoes.
Walk. Out. Side.
and look and try. not. to get totally. overwhelmed. by. the. amazing. beauty. that you see around you.
You can do this.
I believe you have. all. the. answers inside of you now.
Just take one step today. One at a time.
