Being Accountable…..

I've been here in Alberta for a month now and I've become lazy with this blog. I didn't realize how lazy I had gotten with it until I opened the folder on my laptop where I keep all my written, not yet posted blog posts. It's not that I've stopped writing, I've just become lazy about finishing and posting them. This is unacceptable to me. I feel li...

Everyday is a new start

I read this quote today and it moved me. I have spent a good chunk of my life re-adjusting my view of my life. Trying to find the blessings in the chaos that was my childhood. Years ago I came to terms with the fact that my childhood wasn't typical and I actually become grateful for that. We moved around a lot when I was little, which for a young g...

Day 1- Leaving

I feel like leaving the place I've called home for more than a decade should have been hard. I think I should have felt sad or even just a little melancholy over such a big change. I, however, didn't feel sad, melancholy or even a little emotional. I was excited and couldn't wait to go. I knew this change was something I needed.  I also knew t...

In Need Of Sleep

Moving is a stressful thing. Moving across Canada is a long and stressful process. Don't get me wrong; I'm very excited about this new journey I'm on. I'm seeing parts of Canada I never dreamed of. We live in such a place of beauty is blows my mind. It's just that after being in a U-Haul truck for about 10 hours a day, I'm done. I feel exhausted ev...

Be Prepared To Get What You Ask For

A funny thing happens when you ask the universe for a change. The universe answers. It was only five weeks ago I decided to change my life drastically. Slowly my life has been changing. The universe has now given me a very large push in the direction of change. This has all happened so quickly my head is still spinning trying to manage everything t...

Feelings

It's been 19 days since I came home and knew I needed to leave this place. 19 days just doesn't seem like that long when you say it out loud. It doesn't seem accurate when I know how much I've changed. 19 days of purging everything I own. 19 days of explaining to friends and family why I'm doing this. 19 days of doing what feels right. I struggle t...

Tears & Tea

A few weeks ago I decided that my life needed to change. I knew I would have to break away from this life I had built in order to find what makes me happy. What I didn't know was how fractured emotionally this would make me. What I hadn't considered was how on edge I already was. What I didn't think about was the timing of all this. When you have t...

What am I doing here?

How did I get here? What am I doing with my life? These questions have been on my mind for months now, but I had no idea how to answer them. I wasn't even sure if I could answer them. I thought I loved this place. I thought I had exactly what I wanted. I did all the 'right' things, followed the 'right' path and yet here I am. Completely lost. Lost ...
