Getting Clean

Without even realizing that it was Earth Day yesterday, I stumbled across this link and decided to purchase a ton of “clean” household products. I pretty much bought everything on the list at drugstore.com and paid only $39. I got new dish soap, hand soap, laundry detergent, dishwasher soap, and all purpose cleaner. I was inspired!!!

12 Relationship Tips

I absolutely loved this post from one of my favorite bloggers. Definitely worth a read.

Snippet:  What to look for in a partner: I once interviewed a psychologist for a column, and I asked him readers’ questions about what to look for in a mate. Without fail, his answer to almost every question was “choose someone kind, choose someone kind.” It was like a broken record, and I was annoyed. But you know what? Being with somebody who is fundamentally kind — to children and waiters and dogs — means that at the end of the day, they will be kind to you.

I completely agree with this. Kindness is so SO important. If you are with someone who has a good heart, everything else can be worked out. That’s why I feel very lucky with Will. He’s respectful to everyone he encounters, he cares about the people in my life just as much as he cares about me. And he loves me so much and is always kind. It’s not always rainbows and butterflies, but at the end of the day even through the struggles we face I know I’m with a good person who loves me as much as I love him.

Catching Up…

Oh hello there!! Guess whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat. I finally got our computer here at home set up so I am able to blog again. Yippeeeee!! And boy do I have a few things to discuss. I may actually do it in separate posts so this isnt one longggggg post. So first things first, because it’s the most recent life changing things I’ve done, I quit my job. Yes…yes I sure did. You may remember this post about 5 or so weeks ago where I talked about starting a new one?
Well, unfortunately it did not work out. I went into the position very excited. But as the days passed I just felt like maybe I wasnt super qualified. The projects they would give me I could do, but at the same time, I felt this nervous anxiety all day every day like I didnt really know what I was doing.

Everyone at this company was very friendly and nice, and I know it was too soon to tell, I just didnt feel at home there. I felt very alone. And when I pictured myself working there for a couple more months…years… I just didnt see myself happy there.
I would come home almost every night and cry to my boyfriend. I was in a dark place. Waking up and not enjoying and dreading where you have to go to work 5 days a week is the worst feeling. And it wasnt just a “I hate my job” feeling. It was a constant anxiety I was having about it. I could just not be happy.

So… I reached out to my old firm (the one I was at for 6 years and left 7 months ago) and I asked if they would take me back. And luckily within a few hours, they called me and said they would! And I could start as soon as Monday!

I have never been more thrilled!!!

If I’m being honest, I’m in a totally different frame of mind than I was a few years ago. My priorities have changed and I envision a somewhat different life for myself. I still have to figure out exactly what path I want to take career wise. But since I was doing the same type of work at this new job, I felt like why not go do the same work at a place where I feel like my coworkers are my family and I know what I’m doing?
It feels so right and I feel happy again.
