Another year older…Another year wiser? Perhaps. Although perhaps not because I did go to dinner at a Mexican restaurant knowing there was a very high likelihood I would end up in a sombrero at some point in the evening 😛
I can’t help but be reflective today, which I’m hoping doesn’t make me all emotional because it really is a positive reflection when I look back on the past year of my life. One year ago if you would’ve asked me “Where you will you be and what will you be doing one year from now?” My answer would have been, “I don’t know.”
This time last year I was just finishing up the back to school season at my retail store and beginning the liquidation sales. I was lucky enough to spend an amazing birthday weekend, drinking too much, and falling down (literally) before facing what would end up being some of the toughest times in my life so far. Going through the store closing and unemployment changed me, eventually for the better but I did have times I didn’t think I was going to make it to a better place.
I went through periods of doubt.
I went through a few days of severe depression.
I moved onto a new chapter in my life.
I’m finally starting to feel settled in my new place, making new friends, and learning how to do my job, my dream job. Change is scary but I’m learning to embrace change. Every single day I do something that pushes me out of my comfort zone and further away from my warm, comfortable rut....honestly, I don’t think I could climb back into that rut if I wanted to because I’ve come so far.
I thought I was going to have this whole epic post about all the changes in my life but I summed it up and linked back to some highlights, plus it’s after 9:00 pm so this old lady needs to get to bed 😉
