I am so sick of seeing myself apologize for my lack of posts on here but I can't help but feel bad for abandoning my page/all of you so often.
Ever since I started my new job I find myself LIVING more and sitting in front of the computer less [except when I am at work, but I am a happy little busy bee all day long!]  I have said I am going to make a better effort to post like I was before but the truth is I don't know when/if that will happen.
I am not saying that I am no longer going to blog/write/post by any means so please don't take this the wrong way. I just wanted to explain exactly where I am coming from and where I have been.
Like I mentioned above, I have been LIVING more.
I can say that I am at a place in my life where I have never been happier.
I have NEVER been happier.
It's amazing how much a crappy job, commute, boss, co-workers -whatever- can affect your everyday life.
I was much more unhappy at my old job then I ever let on.
I dreamed of the days I wouldn't have to deal with the BS that went on there or my hellish 90 minute commute [both ways]
I traded all of it in for a local job with a company I had never heard of and a slight pay cut.
You know what?
I look forward to work every single day.
I work for great people, who appreciate not only me, but everything around them.
I have FUN at work which never crossed my mind as a possibility in my life.
My ideas get turned into actions, everyday and it makes me feel worth it.
I LOVE my job.
I LOVE my life.
I really cannot say it enough.
I am truly blessed and thankful for this opportunity as well as Eddie, family and friends that pushed me to take the risk.
If you don't like something about your life CHANGE IT.
Seriously, life is so so so short... too short to be unhappy in any aspect of it.
Take the risk.
Take the pay cut.
Take a walk on the wild side.
It will change you.
It will remind you WHY you're living.
I mean it.
Because you deserve it.
There will always be bills.
There will always be struggle.
Money isn't everything.
Life is


  1. Can I just say AMEN?!!

    I love this post and happiness is KEY to a beautiful life <3

  2. Love this post. I needed to be reminded of this. I'm at a job which is fine for now but am working up on getting volunteer hours to apply to go back to school next year to completely change fields. It's frustrating that I can't just be doing what I want to do right now, but I must stay positive!

  3. I am SO happy to hear that you are HAPPY and doing well at your new job. I also struggle with the posting/sitting in front of the computer vs. LIVING issue. Life changes DAILY and the older I get (especially when you have kids) you learn to just go with the flow. A post may happen and it may not but... being happy is what matters. A schedule is a good thing, and I like to keep a schedule, but we also need to be flexible. You are an inspiration to SO many and just reading this post will be a help to so many.

  4. Working at a place you enjoy makes a world of difference. I love my job, my coworkers and my day - I wish everyone had that. Good luck with the job :)

  5. I love this post! It is exactly what I needed to hear/read today! Thanks girl! I always find you such a positive energy and I love ya for it!!! :)

  6. Yay, yay, yay for this post! So exciting to hear you took a leap of faith & it's ended up being for the good! This is so inspiring to read. I am "stuck" right now where I'm at & find finances & "What If's" holding me back. Thanks for showing me it CAN be done :)

  7. Gotta do what you gotta do. I've been in the same happy, peaceful predicament lately. Taking up much needed reading and journaling. It has my blogging schedule in relaxed mode. But that's okay.

    Enjoy. Glad you found a job you love. Not many I know can say that.

  8. I agree is too short to be anything but happy! :)

  9. Love this post. I working on being a happier person myself, working on loving me and just life. This post made me smile and I like that! Way to go!

  10. Totally with you! I decided to forget about blogging regularly, so that when I do post I know it's something meaningful (or it's just a rainy Sunday and I have nothing better to do). Congrats on the positive changes!

  11. Thank you for sharing such an inspirational post!! I definitely agree on what you've written. I believe that if you love what you're doing or if you love your job, you'll appreciate your life even more. You don't feel exhausted or you don't get easily fatigued, because you are enjoying every minute of your work. :) I hope that I'll also be able to achieve my dreams as of now, I'll just enjoy what I'm doing. :)
