I was secretly on a mission for the last 11 months and I am sad to report that I have failed. My goal was to meet a hot and super rich guy to marry and travel with and never work again.
I have put my goal aside (for now 😉 ) and found a new job! I’m pretty excited because it’s something new but nervous AF hoping I do a good job. I do feel good about it because they have already set up a Welcome Liz Lunch (I love lunching!) whereas my last employer threw me in a cube and my boss didn’t talk to me for six months.
With that said, I came across a blog I never posted when I was down in the dumps. I had made a list of goals that I have mostly accomplished:
- Stop the negativity – work in progress
- Do what makes me happy – my favorite one!
- Walk everyday – eh, working on that
- Love myself – work in progress
I have made a lot of changes since I made this list and feel really good. I probably haven’t felt this good for an extended period of time in years. I am not perfect and I will stumble but I am conscious of what I need to do to stay on track.
My time “off” has been time well spent. I have helped others which fills my heart and others have helped me. In down times we learn who our friends our and I certainly did. My friends have really stuck by me and when I was a raging bitch or in a dark place; they certainly made it known and balanced me. THANK YOU!
My parents have been my safety net and I am incredibly lucky to have them. Despite disagreements I know they have my best interest at heart. ❤
Lastly, like the quote about says, “Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.” It’s easy to be positive when things are going right for me at the moment, but I learned how to have faith in myself. No one can ever bring you down unless you let them. This was a hard lesson for me because it meant I had to be mentally strong and block out the bullshit. I built that faith in myself by knowing I was better than what anyone says or thinks. I had faith that I am a hard worker and would figure out a way if I didn’t find a job. There is always a way…
