You never really think about what exactly drives you to get up and go daily. We just do it! We learn to get up each day, use the bathroom, get dressed, eat breakfast, have coffee, brush teeth and go about whatever it is you are to be doing. Then we come home each evening, have dinner, socialize if we want, go through the motions and head to bed. Groundhogs Day comes and goes as one would expect as an adult.
When you are a toddler, you get up and giggle, play and learn the awe of wonder in each new thing you touch. You touch, chew, lick, try to eat everything you can just to have your senses learn about this new world you live in.
As you grow older and get into grade school you get up, smile, laugh, and learn how to socialize with your friends while learning how to read, write and all the fun things that come with elementary school. Relay races, artwork for holidays, field day and summer break come and go.
Junior High school… well that is much different. The awkward stage where you are maturing, growing, and your hormones are all wacky and crazy and all over the place. As a teen girl, I cried, I laughed and I freaked out all in a 5 minute time frame! My hair was never right, my clothes were not right and changing was difficult!
High School, phew, finally I started feeling better about myself. It was much nicer. I enjoyed my classes, I had good friends, I felt better about myself and couldn’t wait to get the heck out on my own! Until I was that is!
Right now, I keep going through the daily grind. Wake up, get kids up, shower, get ready for work, make sure kids are ready, head off to work/school and then come home and do dinner, activities, prayers, bedtime and restart it all over again. I think about how I LOVE my life and how I LOVE my kids and how I want to continue to see their hearts beat and their lives thrive. My DRIVE is my children, my husband and my love for them and God. Keep driving, that is what I tell myself each day.
