Deflated, not defeated

We're back from vacation, exhausted, and busy getting caught up with life. I have a million billion pictures to sort through from our trip and literally haven't had one second to peek at them yet. Stayed tuned for The Duncan's Roundhouse Kick to the East Coast. On another note, we're standing at the brink of summer with our toes hanging over a world of unknown, wondering what to do with this thing called life. This past year has been filled with a number of set backs, rejections, and let downs that have left us feeling...set back, rejected, and let down. The hot months ahead have been unofficially declared the summer of figuring it all out. And we will. One day at a time.

This video helped change my perspective this morning. After all, we're not experiencing anything profoundly new, just life.

At it's finest.

Watch it HERE.

Glad you all had a great vacation. I can't wait to see pictures!

I can say this now, but I couldn't say this 2 years ago: The best part about lifes set-backs is that there is alway something better for you waiting around the corner. You just can't peak around that corner until you get there.

Things are crazy sometimes. Check out the movie "The Secret", or the book. I thought it was helpful. Or maybe you already have. Anyway best of luck to both of you.
