Is Your Future Exciting?

I woke up this morning and groaned as I faced another wet and windy Monday morning. But after the initial shock I realised I’m incredibly fortunate and have so much to look forward to in the coming days, weeks and months. My default setting is ‘glass half empty’ but I’m making a real effort now to count my blessings and make the most of the life I have. Your future can be as exciting or grim as you want it to be. Today I choose the former.

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. Just what I needed today. I cancelled my class today, just couldn’t find the energy to face the students. I moaned over 10 more weeks to teach. But then I read this post, and I, too, choose to see it as an exciting time to share my knowledge. I can’t let the lack of interest some of them show to depress me. I have to remember that not everyone will be as excited as I am about sociology. I want them all to want an A but that is not the reality of teaching. I would settle for a little more respect, though.

  2. Thanks for these wonderful words. This makes me realized too how blessed I am that I can still wake up every single morning and do what I want to do. 🙂

  3. Honestly, I don’t have a future right now. But I have come to accept that this is my life, and I am trying to live it as best as I can. I simply do it day by day, because the future isn’t something that is productive for me to consider.
