It’s been several months since my not-so triumphant return to Wisconsin. I’ve missed writing, and quite frankly, I’m disappointed in myself for not keeping up with it. These past few months have been a whirlwind of emotion ranging anywhere from gut-wrenching anxiousness to surprising blissfulness. It comes in waves. Life is crazy like that.
I’m thankful for the support of my family. Often we forget that family is first and foremost. Without the words of encouragement and unwavering kindness, I’d be entirely lost
There’s been so much change in my life lately. All for the better. I’ve discovered the beauty of meditation seemingly by chance, and have in turn, began studying the practice from the basics. It’s a truly powerful aid to a cluttered mind like my own. Inner peace is something I’ve been striving for my entire life. Meditation has been unbelievably helpful. It was foolish of me to doubt it for so long. I never pictured myself giving something like that a chance. Again, Change. Change is something special.
I’m happy to have found myself in a great career (finally). If only they knew how thankful I am for the opportunity. This job market is cutthroat. College Degree? Check. Experience? Check. Work Ethic? Check. Want a Job? Too bad. I’m so glad I’m done writing cover letters. I started to see them in my nightmares (kidding…maybe?)
All in all, I’ve got an optimistic view on my future. Credit goes to my mom for giving me that kick in the ass I needed on a long drive up north a few months ago. Love shows itself in many forms.
It feels good to write again. I need to stick to it. The ol’ 9-5 won’t be an excuse. Here’s to change.
