Big Changes

Big changes have consumed my life lately and it has proved that my life is anything but normal. It has been an exhaustingly exhilerating time and I have discovered strength I never thought possible through an incredibly loving Father in Heaven.

Change #1- My job was taking a toll on my mental, physical and spiritual state. It was somehow not the right fit for the moment, therefore I found the need at the end of October to resign.

Change #2- Flew to Utah for some much needed rest and mental stability for a week over the Halloween weekend.

Change #3- Upon returning to DC I found a new job working at a Spa- I absolutely love it and the people I work with. Meanwhile, I am keeping my eyes open for more career building opportunities.

Change #4- Most excitingly (drum roll please) I am flying down to Florida in two days to take a chance at becoming one of these lovely ladies...

I'm not betting too much money on this superficial lottery, but I thought it was at least worth a try:) Wish me luck!

Extraordinary Machine

I certainly haven't been shopping for any new shoes
I certainly haven't been spreading myself around
I still only travel by foot and by foot, it's a slow climb,
But I'm good at being uncomfortable, so
I can't stop changing all the time

I seem to you to seek a new disaster every day
You deem me due to clean my view and be at peace and lay
I mean to prove I mean to move in my own way, and say,
I've been getting along for long before you came into the play

If there was a better way to go then it would find me
I can't help it, the road just rolls out behind me
Be kind to me, or treat me mean
I'll make the most of it, I'm an extraordinary machine
