Moving On Monday…

moving on

Good morning everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. So today is a difficult monday for me because it is the first monday at the end of June where I am NOT teaching Jr. Sailing to little kids. I have been helping out and teaching the youngest group of sailors for 8 years now, and this is the first year where I am unable to work down at the yacht club. It is something that I am really going to miss. I love working with little kids, and I am a bit jealous that my sister is now the instructor. All of this being said, things change and life moves on. No, I am not working this summer, but that does not mean that I have to feel bad about it. As many of you probably figured out, I am not a fan of change-it is definitely something that scares me. However, change is inevitable…it is a fundamental part of life. Just because everything in life is constantly changing does not mean you are not allowed to miss people, events, and good times from the past. You just need to make sure that you do not get yourself stuck in the past or dwelling on previous events.

I have accepted that this summer is going to be different in many ways. It is the first summer where I am dealing with full blown affects of Dyasutonomia and POTS, and my main focus is getting myself well. I am not able to do the job that I have done for years, but I AM able to take a class thanks to the disability department at my school. I guess now it is time for me to focus on finishing my degree and getting my strength back. You never know where life’s course will take you, and it most definitely will not stay the same. The key to dealing with this is just accepting that fact and going with the flow of life’s changes. It may not be easy, but it is necessary and in the end, very worth it.

Have a good week lovelies-and embrace any major changes occuring in your life!

  1. Hey Claire!
    I’m really proud of you for choosing to make the best of this summer. From your post, I can imagine it’s going to be really different for you, but I’m really encouraged that you will be able to enjoy taking a class at school. My mom has a chronic illness too, and she always feels better in the summer. I hope you discover healthier days ahead with the warm weather to look forward to! 🙂

  2. Change can be scary, but it’s also what makes life interesting. I like your quote, and the fact that you are accepting change with a positive attitude. Now your sister has a chance to fill your previous position, and you have a chance to take a class that you need. Embrace whatever is on your plate and let the rest go. 📚
