I'm Going Through Changes...

Now, re-read that title. I'm NOT going through THE "change." I'm not quite there yet:)

I live with an Ozzy Osbourne fanatic. The Black Sabbath song "Changes" has been running through my mind on a constant circuit.

Last week was one helluva a week, let me tell you. I began making some pretty big decisions about my professional life and where I want to be. I had let things slide for too long and it seems as if I made some HUGE decisions in a very short period of time.

Have you ever had someone tell you that you couldn't do something? Or wouldn't be able to accomplish something? What was your reaction? Mine was to explode and cry, then I picked up my sword and said, "Yeah, well, let me show you!" NEVER tell me what I can or cannot do because I will prove you wrong. I don't like to be pigeonholed and to quote one of my favorite movies, "Nobody puts Baby in a corner." 

I don't appreciate it when someone belittles me or my talent. I may sound a bit arrogant, but it has taken me a long time to believe in myself and won't let anyone take that away from me. I can hear my dad's voice in my ear saying, "That's my girl" so I know I'm making the right choice as I move in the direction I am heading. 

My husband would love to slay this particular dragon for me, but he's respecting me enough to let me fight the battle I am waging. He's got my back and I wouldn't have it any other way.

There are only a few friends I have confided in and I feel blessed to know they have my back as well. With my little army at my back, I'm battling forward with this journey. I may have to hack through the thorns and brambles as I try to find my own path, but like I said, I have people who are willing to help me. I am truly blessed.

Be patient with me and give me some time to adjust. I read somewhere that if something isn't working for you, then make a change. So for now, I'm going through changes and I can only hope that they propel me forward.

On a side note: Be sure to check out my website for the contest I have going on.


  1. You've got to do what you've got to do to make you happy and keep your dreams alive! I know you will make the right decision no matter what you do. You know I've always got your back! :o)

  2. Trying again because my post got eaten. I'm not going to say much, cos I keep making you cry, just you know where I am.

  3. Thank you, Dani! I've had so few people in my life who I can trust. I'm thankful to count you among those few:D

    My dear Hollie. You make me cry simply because you say the sweetest things. You, too, are one of the few.

    I just told Smurf last night, "My professional issues are leading me to more personal truths." I'm learning that my friends are steadfast and loyal. That makes me confident in taking the steps I need to take.

  4. I have found that as well, as I have gone further through my degree, I have found those I can truly rely on. I don't trust easily, it often takes me years to count someone as a friend. But then I don't tend to let them go again and will do what ever I can for them, my kids say i adopt people, i do, but most of them are kids and their friends.

  5. Keep to it! Change can be good...I only wish that more people had the support that you do with your husband and friends! Never....NEVER...let anyone tell you, you can't do something...I'm like you, just let me show them!
