And so I start another chapter in my life. Nothing has much changed. It's more of a change in mindset, attitude and belief. This life is going to be one of abundance. That's why the name- Jarful of Plenty - a jar that is overflowing with life and joy.
Of course the last few years have been of great joy too and 2 lives have been borne out of it - Nat and Noe. But it has also been an extremely mentally and physically draining journey. And often I've questioned myself as to why I am doing what I'm doing? Do I really want to do what I'm doing? What do I really want to do? So as I reflect, I find myself wanting to live life with joy, joy that is borne out of rest not stress. Not having to strive or compare myself with others but rather understanding my true self and harnessing what is present into potential.
I live on the low floors and so there is no chance for scenic view that people on the high floors have. I remember sharing about the Yellow Flame Tree directly positioned outside my bedroom. With the recent drought, I thought I would soon see it's leaves turn brown like the grass. But rather, it's yellow flowers are blooming ever so vibrantly. Its petals litter the sidewalk. Its flourishing leaves provide covering for a crow's nest perched on it's branches.
And so, my hope is for my husband, my children and I, to be like this Yellow Flame Tree, rooted and established in love, power to grow in abundance in this journey of life.
