Life goes on and another trip around the sun

So- yeah, it's been a while.  I could give all kinds of excuses- and while all valid they are still just that- excuses. The bottom line is that I needed to step back for a while, to evaluate my direction, to steady my heart, to let go of some things that needed to be let go of, and to identify what my next steps were going to be.

What have I been up to?  Well my last post found me sick with what they thought was strep- it wasn't.  I had missed two days due to that and back at school for three and then that weekend I woke up with the worst pain in my joints ever and a rash (oh and I ran a fever for about a week and a half).  I ended up missing 6 more days of school because they thought my mono test was wrong.  However, it still turned up negative and they never could pinpoint what the issue was- it basically became an unknown virus that mimicked the symptoms of mono.

I ended my ten years at my school and am currently unemployed (which I won't lie- scares me out of my mind) but am actively looking for another job as well as packing to move (which is a daunting task itself)

Right now I am making my to do lists (yes, more than one) for moving- the sad thing is, for everything I cross off the list- I add about 5 more things.  I try every day to get some things done but today- Wednesday- I am taking a break!  Why?

Well, it's a time to celebrate that trip around the sun and it's a big one y'all (yes I said that LOL)!  To celebrate I am spending time with friends and then heading to Atlanta where I am going to see not just one game but TWO games, hit up The Varsity and probably Ikea, and most important- visit with friends who for the last 6 years have made their house my home.  The closer it gets- the more I am struggling, the more tears fall and the more my heart aches- and yet, I know that I am smack dab in the middle of where God wants me.  For too long I have plodded along and not really live- I am choosing to live and to focus and love on people who mean the world to me!

I am also going to be working on other some other things- things that will come out in time- things that I need to put into motion first- and when the time is right I'll share but in the meantime I leave you with this:
