This time, four years ago, I felt like my world was being ripped apart. I was overwhelmed at work with my new job, living in a city where I didn't really know anyone, and just broke up with The Ex after almost 5 years together. I certainly shed some tears, made desperate attempts to regain The Ex's attention, and wondered what in the world I should do with my life.
Then a lightning bolt hit me.
I remember pledging to myself in my private blog that 2008 should be the best year of my life. I was bound and determined to make it a memorable year for the RIGHT reasons.
And you know what? It worked. I ended up taking some awesome vacations, spending time with my family, hanging out and making new friends. And, most importantly, I met Puff.
I found myself wallowing in a similar pool of mucky emotions, this time in 2012. I have felt for months like my world has been ripped apart. I am unemployed and struggling financially. I have battled depression and fear as to what is ahead in my life. But you know what? It's time to make that pledge. Because unlike 2008, I *know* this is going to be the best year of my life. Bimmer is coming in just a few weeks and there is NOTHING that can take that glee away from me.
This weekend marks my first baby shower and I am so blessed to have such great friends and family that wish to surround me and our baby and rain over us with their love and support. (Not to mention how wonderful any gifts are going to be, since money is super tight these days!) So while 2012 started out pretty shitty, I'm bound and determined to make the rest of the year amazing. Here's to forward progress!
