There is No Going Back...I've Made the Changes...AND Got Off the Waiting Line...


Hey Everyone! Thank you for all comments the past two days!! CJ loved the strawberries & I'm going to go Ikea over the weekend to work on my bare walls. I appreciated all your ideas & will put them to use! I also think I might have a ghost or a poltergeist or something in the new place but that'll be a future post. This one is about how far I've come and gone when I finally stopped just watching my life pass me by, stuck in that waiting line.


I once had a Wiccan friend named Dawn tell me that I was a "Lady in Waiting" in one of my past lives. At the time when she told me that I couldn't comprehend why she would say that? I was the captain of the cheer leading squad in high school, I was the president of S.A.D.D (Students against destructive decisions), and I was in the top 10% of my class. I didn't have much of a social life but I felt like I was going somewhere. I would never imagine the waiting would soon start.

Waiting for the new guy, the new job, the new apartment, the new...the new life. Well the time has come the walrus said...to live my new life. I have the new guy and he is absolutely wonderful. CJ is all I could have ever wanted & asked for. He bought me a Keurig for Valentine's day & I'm actually at his place right now. He didn't want to me to leave because I was looked tired. He can be insanely considerate & wonderful at times. Through the struggle it was I forged through and actually got my apartment I always wanted. I'm paying less for my mortgage & common charges then if I rented. It's coming along and it's perfect for right now. My health is on a high note & I'm relieved. I'd like no more surgeries please. The job is easier said then done BUT I am putting myself out there on sites & applying to positions. It's a matter of time...and I'm used to waiting. I'm truly blessed right now & I'm so thankful that I got up and did something with my life. Ever so thankful.


I wonder what is going to be next?  The new job? A vacation to a place I've never been? Another opportunity knocking to go see a once in a lifetime performance? Sticking to my diet and having a more tone body? Who knows! I didn't think this year I'd see a Beatles Revival concert or see Green Day live or realize "Hey, I'm exactly where I want to be". That feeling is the best in the world. There is nowhere else that mind is wondering to except to the cute boy playing video games on the couch next to me. I'm happy right now on my journey and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Have You Recently Realized "Hey I'm happy & where I want to be?" Or are you still searching...

I feel like I searched for a million years...

I love this post, sweet Melanie, as I do all of yours. But I often wonder the same thing: what's next? Your posts always make me think and put me in a better mood. Thank you for that :-)

Hugs xoxo

Sounds like you're at an amazing place in life right now :) I've had that feeling a few times, but then there's always more to come!

I think I'm still searching. I feel like I wouldn't be so much if I had finished school before now but that's okay... usually.

Such a good point, Melanine! I was thinking something like that the other day. We put so much pressure on ourselves to get progressing and continuously improving. We can't seem to stop, look around and just appreciate where we are and what we've done for ourselves.

Hopefully it'll will all get sorted sooon!
