You’re undeniably different in every way possible

Keywords: {0}

How you look at situations, your lens of the world has changed. How you interact with people, your relationships with others is fragmented and redesigned. But eventually, that way of living becomes familiar and doesn’t hurt so bad to wear it every day. You become desensitized to the itchy smock of grief, and at times can even joke about what an ugly number it is. This is me, until the next tragic life event occurs. Hopefully it’s a very long time from now. But when it does, I hope I don’t descend into a ball of gelatinous nothingness for a year and have to scramble to get my life back. I can’t worry about that now though.

The look on their sad faces as they walk away

Keywords: {0}

[…] my career was first and then my family. While my family was suffering, I was also sad to see how hard it was trying to maintain my work life, that I couldn’t keep it together at home. I’m sure this is the same for everyone. But it got to the point where it was awful for my health – mentally and physically. Working 80+ hours a week and the kids asking for mommy but she’s still on the computer screen.

Stories aren’t made from all good days and everything always working out in your favor

Keywords: {0}

All storms look different, A LOT different and that is OKAY! My story might seem like it has more but I promise you it does not. Mine is different because it is MINE. What is yours? What do you have to share? You are made for more, always. It doesn’t always have to look pretty, put together. Life is MESSY all on its own and you, NO ONE can change that. Life can get pretty ugly, it is meant to be at times. We just get used to managing it so much so that we forget to just be present in the messy and remember life is still so gorgeous. Even in the midst of messy and figuring things out.

I’m going to start to be more edgy and wild

Keywords: {0}

I want life experience and I want to not care so much about what I should do or how I should act. I don’t care about that anymore. I’m going to live for me and be the bad bitch I know that I am. I am going to look super innocent looking but in reality be very smart, thoughtful, edgy, wild and someone who just does not give a fuck. I love dressing edgy and I love being edgy. Fuck being an innocent child. Fuck that shit.

I wanted to know that I matter, that my life matters in this world, that my existence has significance

Keywords: {0}

I realized that everything I had been doing in my life, everything that I had been building up to, such as my high-paying job and my condo ~ it was all an illusion, it was all a facade. What was the point of stressing myself out for five years if I were to lose it all one day? Why did I have to suffer for nothing? Losing everything in the pandemic made me start to question what the purpose of everything was. Why was it that we spend our whole youth spending six hours in a classroom, which most subjects we don’t even use and why do we take such big gambles such as paying thousands of dollars for an education that does not guarantee a job or if we get one, we could lose it in an instant due to factors outside of our control? Why did thousands of people need to die needlessly in the pandemic, including someone I knew, who was young and vibrant, at the start of her career?

I stepped back, regrouped, and put my intention out in a detailed and specific way

Keywords: posts

I chose a couple locations and told the Universe that I wanted to be there. I was willing to compromise on the job, but not the setting or the living situation. I also wanted a specific sort of housing. I will not live with a roommate, no matter how perfect s/he is. I have already decided that even living with Jesus would be a challenge. Though, that whole water to wine thing would be handy. Anyway I got clear and specific. I was feeling this process way more than previously. I had found my vibe.
