I Got My Eye On The Horizon


Sometimes you feel like you’ve reached… not necessarily a crossroads, but a place where the longing for something else is so deep, all you can do is wake up and continue to go about your routine, day in day out, all while keeping a watch on the horizon for that ship to come in. Sometimes it’s a longing for something missing in your life, sometimes it’s a longing for some place new….a new adventure. A new direction in life…different surroundings and the sense that maybe there is more out there than what you’ve experienced. Maybe a change of scenery is sometimes what we all long for at some point in our lives.

I’m kind of longing for that right now. Longing for a chance to experience things I haven’t before. I’m feeling the end of my growth here where I’m at. I don’t want to live a stagnant life never striving or reaching for that next milestone or goal. If we went on each day now as it is, would things be ok….yeah for a little while, maybe even a year or two…but I’m ready. I’m ready to take leaps, to do hard things to achieve the dream and the desire. You can’t go anywhere if you aren’t willing to put in the hard work for it. So I’m raising my glass to the horizon. I can’t see past it, but I feel like something is there…something is out there, we just have to grab the anchor and hold on. It might be bumpy for a little while and the waves might be big, but they’ll settle down after a while.

Cheers to willingness

Cheers to hope

Cheers to second chances

Cheers to adventures and endeavors

Cheers to the hard work and complications that proceed you down that path or road you desire, because it won’t come without hard work and a few stones thrown in your path. 

In my life when things got hard, I usually had to do them by myself. I’d get some encouragement over the phone in those situations from people I hold dear to me. But it was up to me to do it. To put that phone down and take word to heart and do it. I had to believe in myself. Sometimes I cried through it, I wondered where are my angels? They were there, but willing me to realize my own strength. 

I think there are times when we simply feel a calling in our hearts. Do you follow the calling? Or do you just stay put living the ordinary and the mundane? 

I don’t want to live the mundane anymore. I want to walk a different path, see a different view. Experience something new.

  1. This is very heartfelt and inspiring. Oftentimes, change requires a great deal of courage! I have always been blessed to have you in my life because you always inspire me to continue to grow.

    1. Ah thank you Tiffany! I’m blessed to have you as a friend too! I Friends can come and go, but you’ve always been there to talk to even though the miles and the distance separate us.

  2. I’m feeling the exact same way right now…in terms of blogging. Sure, we have a new house, new baby, and other things…but I’m finding ti hard to blog anymore. Time is always tight,and the financial compensation is rather small… for me at least. As of yesterday, I started tossing around the idea of a part-time job in my future. Not immediately, but I’m feeling like entering the working world… even for minimum wage & part-time… would be good. And a HUGE step up from what I earn blogging.

    1. Yeah the financial compensation can be really small. Only lately have I landed some deals that make it even worth continuing other than for my own personal pleasure. There is so much work that goes into it and often times people don’t take bloggers seriously. “What do you mean you won’t do this for me for free!?” I get that a lot! When I sit down at my computer I’m usually on a limited time frame and if it doesn’t get done in that hour, it has to wait til the next day or staying up late to finish. People don’t get that, especially with kids. I love that I can be home with them, but its also sometimes better for me to say no to some blog related things just so I can say yes to the kids. Sometimes its just not worth it.

  3. changing your path can be so scary but it’s sometimes so necessary. As humans we want to explore and even though it’s scary you just have to jump right in. I hope you can follow your calling and the results are nothing but happy!

  4. Beautifully written and oh so beautiful. It is that leap of faith to trust that change is what our soul needed and that first steps are always scary and that is the exact reasons why we need to go for it 🙂 Love the photo! Good luck with your adventure 🙂

  5. Hi Heather,

    Sometimes life can feel mundane but I think that it’s always important to remember what is most important to you and to always be grateful for what you already have 🙂

  6. I often feel this way. Over the past few months I have been telling myself and my husband that we need to take the bull by the horns and take chances.
