It has been a while since I dedicated some time to my blog. It feels out of place somehow. But in speaking to a colleague the other day, I shared about my blog and he reminded me that my blog needed some TLC. So here I am! So much has happened since my last posting. Among other things I changed jobs, which was one of the best decisions of my life! I am excited to embark in the world of academia. I am also in the process of moving, which requires me sell my current home and buying a new one closer to my job. It’s a lot of stress and a bit overwhelming, especially since I am doing this alone, but it helps me to grow and learn a little everyday.
I feel so happy with where my life is at this moment. Although, the loneliness kicks in at times. But I am patiently waiting, and to be honest I am not looking for my prince charming which obviously took a detour somewhere and he is currently finding his way to me. LOL I must make a joke out of this, and I am grateful I can if not I would be crying and lamenting.
Something extremely exciting that happened to me was I went skydiving. Well, I shouldn’t say happened to me, but rather I pursued- haha. As most people, I too have a bucket list and in that bucket list skydiving was definitely present. So, after a few months of thinking and talking to people that had done it I took the plunge! It was the best experience of my life so far, and I am so happy I did it! It was liberating, accelerating, and just plain fun! I am fortunate that considering I have a chronic illness I was able to do this. I never would have thought that after barely being able to walk I would be able to skydive and doing successfully… it was a great accomplishment for me, and I will never forget it.🙂 I have shared the video with you, if you are interested in sharing the experience with me.
To count my blessings: I love the parents God gave me, the nieces he brought into my life, my friends who love me and accept me as I am, and lastly my health, which has been so much better.
