I caught myself smiling…

You know its going to be a good day when you catch yourself smiling for no particular reason on your way to work.

I have the most entertaining bus driver today so that probably where it all started. Today marks 2 weeks in New Zealand and what a 2 weeks it has been…but I’ll save that for another post.

Do you love your job? Love your life? The bus driver this morning welcomed me onto the bus with the biggest smile and the friendliest HELLO! I have had since we arrived – and there have been many! He made some funny comments about whether we had enough space on the bus – yes there were only 2 of us 🙂

He was cheerful, whistling and singing to himself and he made me realize that just that smile he shares makes everyone around him smile and start their day just right! When i said goodbye and jumped off the puss and started my short walk to the office and then I caught myself smiling….

A year ago in South Africa we had just had a n armed robbery at home – we were terrified even though we never told the kids and tried our best to all stay calm. I think that was our turning point of deciding that sitting it out in SA was no longer and option but where to? And how?

That was probably where the journey began! Now today, a year later I am living a life I only dreamed about. Experiencing things I only dreamed possible. That smile was because for the first time in a long time I feel like I am really just at the beginning and Life really does Begin at 40…

Have an amazing weekend…
