So I’ve decided I like my life. If you would have asked me that a week ago I probably wouldn’t have said the same thing, but I think I’m moving past the transition time and finally feeling more settled. Last week I really struggled with being out of school, having a different schedule, just going to work and coming home, not sure where to spend my free time, and feeling lonely.
I don’t have all this figured out necessarily, but I have it figured out more I guess you could say. It is just a time of change and transition and I’m trying to look at the positive side of it. I’m embracing the solitude and am starting to enjoy the time I have to myself. I just started reading Reaching Out by Henri Nouwen (great recommendation Jake!) and he addresses the issue of solitude and isolation which has been really helpful. Those are my two biggest issues in this whole transition time, but I’m starting to see how this can be a good.
Anyway, not sure if all that made sense, but I feel like I’m finally in a good place to post a blog that wouldn’t sound like a pity party. I’m happy with my life right now. I love my job, I love where I live, I’m seeing old friends and making new ones, I’m going to a new church, and learning more about who I am each day. So yes…I like my life.
