To-Do = Done

Looking back at my to-do list from almost a year ago (can you believe it?!):

1. Get over ex (it will be a lot easier when I get back to Texas and not have to see him all the time) Check
2. Get a job (preferably one that I like) Check
3. Keep looking for better jobs if I don't hit the jackpot the first time Check
4. Get a place to live Check
5. Get my wings (tattooed on my back) On the to-do list for this summer
Most importantly - BE HAPPY and find happiness in myself and not in others. No more looking for validation. Love myself. Check check check!!!

Within 10 months so many things I never thought would happen, happened. In fact, it was only three months ago that I was at my breaking point. I was still unemployed with no hope in sight. Even the idea of getting a place of my own seemed impossible. And now, everything has kind of come to me in a whirl wind. I haven't touched ground yet. It still feels frantic and scary and impossible, but what a journey.

I love this fortune cookie fortune I got. I posted it in my journal to remind me that...
"You do not have to know where you are going to be headed in the right direction."

Sounds inspiring! And congrats on getting over the ex, that can be the worst, especially with no job and so much time to sit and think about it!

I have enjoyed your blog so far and look forward to reading more!
