There are many times when life feels like a roller-coaster that has fallen off the tracks. It seems like one bad thing happens, just to be followed by another and it ends up turning into a vicious cycle of events. Often times you are just getting through one of lives difficult event when something else comes up. It is hard to catch your breath, but you are also forced to keep going.
We have all heard people say that life is short, but is it really? I have always believed that everything in our life happens for a reason and we may never know what those reasons are, but they are there. I think our story was written way before we were even born and we are just here to play the part.
It kind of seems like I have lived a year that was full of changes, some were good and others were not. I have no regrets about moving to a new area with my husband and two cats. It was a good choice and I do not miss the area we moved from. The move was a new chapter in our lives and it is not complete yet!
I have always known that you can’t run away from your problems because they will always follow you, no matter where you go. I am not saying there are any problems in my household, but I can’t go anywhere to hide from the pain caused from Multiple Sclerosis or the stress that seems to go everywhere I do. Stress is just something that has been a burden on my mind and haunted me for years.
There are many times I think about a place that has less pain and is stress-free. I find the beach to be a magical place where my pain seems to be less and stress is not welcomed and is blocked from the beach! I think the sound and smell of the ocean clears the mind and lightens to burdens to the soul. What do y’all think?
Y’all already know that I left my previous job a few weeks ago and do not start my new job until Monday. This did give me a break from work and allowed me to recuperate from that job because it really was a terrible place to be. The job was full of negativity and ended up being a very hostile environment. During my time off I was able to reunite more with something I am truly passionate about. I have made the decision to try getting into freelance writing. I know it is going to be a lot more difficult because I will be working full-time, but I will still put forth the effort. Of course it is going to take me longer to get everything setup, but it is a real possibility and I will make it happen!
Most everything about the job I start on Monday will be very new to me, but I catch onto things fast. I do not see it as be a difficult job, but hopefully it will be a great new adventure. There was a time I was very naïve and thought all people had good intentions, but as I have gotten older I know this isn’t always true.Don’t get me wrong, I know there are many wonderful people out there, but with some it isn’t easy to know if their intentions are good or if they plain evil hiding behind fake sincerity. I plan to go into this new job with my eyes wide open and no real expectations, good or bad. I guess if I do not have any expectations for the new job, I will not be disappointed!
So this is my last weekend before starting to work full-time again. I thought it would be best to get plenty of rest to prepare for next week, so I have not done much of anything! Either today or tomorrow I need to go to the grocery store to get a few things so I can make my lunch for the week. I think I am going to try to start eating healthier and think it will make me feel better all around. We are also getting our new kitchen appliances deliver on Saturday, so I can try cooking dinner more than we eat fast food. It has been over a year since we had a stove and surprisingly enough, I am SUPER excited about it!
I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far and you are feeling the best you can. I am still planning to keep my same schedule of posts and continue to try doing additional ones, but it might take me a little longer to respond to comments. We are approaching winter and it is already pretty chilly where I live. The craziest thing is, I actually grew up in the north where there are very cold and snowy winters. I guess living in the south for 20 years has made me forget what cold really is! Now when I say it is getting colder where I live, I think low 50’s is cold!
Thank you so much for stopping by my site today. This post was kind of all over the place, but I guess I just have a lot on my mind and writing about it helps! I do hope you leave a comment because I love reading what your thoughts are on everything. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love , comfort and many positive vibes!
