This is us.
You guys, I have not posted in what feels like a decade. So much has changed with me. I am still living in the same place, but I got a new job. Honest, I had to take a couple steps back, to prevent more setbacks. You know, I had to check myself before I wrecked myself. We are all in charge of our mental health and it isn’t up to anybody but ourselves to keep it in check. It is up to our own self to be happy. I am single, so maybe it is easier for me to say that, but for any couples out there, don’t ever put that on your spouse. Because it is on you, not your partner.
SO, I am so so so sooo thankful and grateful for where I am right now. I can not even fathom never being thankful or grateful again. Although, it wasn’t that long ago that I couldn’t see my own blessings right in front of me. Sure, I knew I was blessed, but I was also so many other things. Including depressed and just not happy. It’s one of the many reasons I wanted to become sober- the ultimate goal for me. Although, now there are new “ultimate” goals. It’s been a long time since I smoked pot or had a drink. But this post is not about my sobriety. I celebrated a sober annivarsary this month, but it hasn’t been long enough since I made the decision to take back the part of my life that was keeping me from being my best self, if that makes sense. More about that later, I definitely want to talk about my sobriety, and couldn’t while I was going through it all. But like I said, this is not that post.
Oh, and before I forget, Happy Thanksgiving!! I know it was yesterday. Obviously, I am not out there Black Friday Shopping today. I prefer the solitude of being inside in the comfort of my own home these days. Besides, I am cleaning, doing laundry, practicing Uppler Level ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam) Vocabulary, blogging, watching movies, hanging out with my pups (and cat, we also have a snake), eating leftovers and studying for my teaching certification. Whew!
I guess I am blogging again, seeing as this is my firt post in a while. I know my site could use a facelift or update and overhaul of sorts. Anywho, prayers for anyone who reads this, and I am thankful for you if you do. Blogs need to be read by someone, that’s the point right? I’ll just be over here counting all of my blessing, piddling around, trying not to get on social media.
Currently, I am blessed to be managing a tutoring center where we work with students toward their academic goals on everything from GPA support to test prep. I am also college counseling certified through my company. Yes, I mediate between families and my tutors. We help students prepare for the SAT and ISEE and more!
Have a blessed day!
