A Fresh Start.

So the last few weeks have been a whirlwind! But thankfully in a good way. As you know I'm a fighter, survivor and believe in turning adversity into triumph.

So when faced with my latest test, I was determined to again rise to the challenge. Last week I was flown out to Washington DC for a day long interview, came home for a day then went to New York for interviews and Connecticut for the weekend. I got to spend time with great friends, and see a part of the country I've always wanted to see.

After traveling back and forth to the east coast 3 times in 2 weeks, I'm glad to be sitting on my couch thinking it all over... so much has happened. So much good and exciting! New challenges lay a head but they are going to be so fun to conquer! I have a big move for me and the kids in store, as I accepted an amazing position in Seattle today! It will bring with it a whole new chapter in our lives, and I cant wait to see how it all plays out.

You cant give up when the going gets tough, you just cant.
It's not an option.
Instead of giving up, LOOK UP.
Move your life upward.
If you've hit a brick wall then the most logical escape is to elevate yourself over it. Not keep bashing your head into it, just sayin!
Take your life and your dreams to the next level. Don't always try to fix what's in front of you, look beyond it, look above it, raise the stakes on yourself and push the boundaries.
Be willing to take a risk, to get the goodies. 

Moving is a big deal for the kids and me, but I'd reached a dead-end here. It was time to broaden my horizons and look beyond the immediate. I had to be open to possibilities that I couldn't immediately see and know that the right option would come to me.

Think beyond the box your in.
Carry it as a handbag instead! 

Don't think that if what your trying has failed that you are a failure. Instead try it from another angle, a new set of eyes, or try what you know you should of done in the first place but you allowed fear to kibosh.

Only you limit you.

  2. This is great news. Congrat's! I went to college in Seattle, and I think you'll love it up there. Lot's of "can do" attitude in that city.

    And on a different note, I'm greatful our paths crossed, how ever briefly (again), and that you suggested I check-out your blog. It's a real"pick-me-up" -- bringing perspective to my ofttimes too serious outlook on life. Thank you.
