I’m not only surviving, I’m thriving. A few months ago, my best friend decided she didn’t want me in her life anymore. I was hurt but now I look back on it and I’m not sad anymore. I look at it as a blessing in disguise. I still love her like a sister. I might not have done all the things that I’ve done if that had not happened. I still have 2 wonderful best friends. I have so many new people in my life now. My life has never felt so fulfilling or rewarding! My strength lies in being myself. I have people in my life now that see my worth and help me also see my worth. I have grown so much in the past few months. A few months ago, I was only imagining that I would go para-sailing, become a travel nurse, go on a hot air balloon ride, and going on a tour into the swamp. Now that’s just what I done. I’m learning to turn the negative into a positive. If I go up to someone and try to start a conversation and they walk away. That has nothing to do with me. I’m still a great person even if they didn’t want to talk to me. I’ve also learned that even when I make a mistake, God will take care of me. If I had not extended my contract in Florida then I would not have had the lizards come into my condo. I was a little hesitant to extend my contract at first but I did it anyway. The day that I was supposed to move out, is the day that the first lizard came into my condo. I would have missed out on the lessons that the lizards taught me. I looked up what a lizard crossing your path means and I got a lesson. The website said that a lizard means to slow down and not be in a hurry to get somewhere. I was hoping that I would bump into my future husband since his house was only about an hour from me. I need to stop rushing and take my time. “All new things are born in your dreams.” -Unknown. I recently turned down a travel job in Florida. Right now I want to go to Hawaii. I feel pulled to Hawaii right now. Every thing is going to work out how ever it is meant to. I had a dream last night that I got a travel job in Hawaii. My job is coming, I just have to wait on it. I love this new feeling that I have. Surviving and thriving at the same time!!!
