Unemployment, life changes, and a new year.

Sheesh, I really did well keeping up on that blogging I talked about in my last post, huh? It’s been a rough few months, let’s just say that. I was laid off in October, unemployed for two months, ended a relationship, moved out of my apartment, and decided it was time to really start adulting. For a while, I really let this get me down. I felt as though I was a victim to my life and that I wouldn’t really amount to anything because of what happened at one company. Well, no longer. No more pity parties. Now it’s time to figure myself out and what I really want from life. What I’ve really learned from the past few months (past year, really) is that we are not what happens to us. We are how we react to what happens to us. If I want to be happy, I have to choose to be that. If I want to be successful, I have to choose to be that. And if I want to do something in my life, I have to choose to actively pursue it.

 

So, here’s to a new year of fresh starts and clean slates. Maybe I’ll actually commit to writing now.
