The Landscape of Life

I sit here in bed, wrapped in gratitude, as I reflect on how beautiful life is.  The landscape has not always been a picture perfect one.  However, the most beautiful landscapes are not the smooth ones.  The most aw-inspiring landscapes are the ones composed of canyons, peaks, and valleys.  My road of life has taken me up, down, around, and around…

October flew by in the blink of an eye.  Along with orchestrating the 2018 NFB of Nevada State Convention, teaching Braille once a week, assisted with coaching cross country twice a week, running five days a week, traveling out of town twice, maintaining a well balanced diet, clean house, and happy kids.  I deserved all that wine and candy I consumed last night.

People ask me all the time how I manage to do all I do.  Simple answer is, “I love what I do, and I do what I love.”  I also have an incredibly loving supportive husband who puts up with my endless passions.  He may not be cheering loudly on the megaphones, but he’s always there behind the scenes taking care of business.  I could not have asked for a better partner to travel through life with.  Dancing to the beat of his own drum, coloring outside the lines, and choosing to fit in no one else’s box, that’s how the Rupp family rolls.

I invite you to hop on over to The Seed Project, hubby’s blog, check out some amazing landscape photography and thought provoking pieces on mindfulness, and challenge you to be willing to step out of your comfort zone, and dance like there’s no one watching.
