It's been a long, long few months, some filled with moments of despiration when I thought it could never be better again, to now, when I know it will be.
During it, I discovered where I am spiritually, and the faith to know that while my path is not "your" path, each path will ultimately lead where we each need to go.
I have learned to let go of the toxic relationship in my life -- the one I clinged to out of fear, and I don't miss it. I don't miss the agitation he stirs up in my soul; I don't miss the insecurity he triggers in me. I said goodbye, finally.
This morning I had oatmeal with a sliced banana in it, and some decaf green tea.
It was the right thing to do.

Every dream begins with a dreamer.
This morning I go to work.
I started a new position on Friday the first - it's back into property management, but this seems to be a company that has its act together and my manager is a no-nonsense kind of lady. I have faith in her. (But then I had faith in the other before that turned ghastley.)
Friday being the first of the month too, is a good sign of new beginnings. The bathroom is clean, the laundry is done and folded, grocery shopping is completed, and I am writing a novel. I'm not sharing details of what the novel is about, but I will share when it's done.
I'm also experiencing a spiritual reawakening, for which I am grateful. I lost sight of my path during this time of difficulty, but God has provided light again.
And on another positive note, I am happy to share that in the three and a half months that I haven't been working, I have not gained weight. I haven't been walking regularly either, but I haven't gained weight, so I give thanks for that.
Today's photo is by me, and the quote is by Harriet Tubman. I have a cyber-site on Fiverr where people can subscribe to daily motiviational picture quotes for $5/seven days. No one has taken advantage of it yet, but that's ok.

I've been applying for work.
I took a position last Wednesday as a courier; I'm driving around a hundred miles a day, lifting boxes into the car, carrying them up stairs to customers.
I hate it.
I'm sitting here crying as I write this because I can't stand the thought of doing it again tomorrow, and the tomorrow after that.
I'm usually so strong, and able to face difficulty with calmness, but can't face this.

Photo by me, quote by Ansel Adams.
I'm not truly lost, just.... misplaced.
Still looking for a job. I will have to sign up with one or two more temp services soon, but, actually, I have faith that the efforts that are "out there" will come to fruition. Dunno why I know it, I just *feel* it.

I like doing these motivational/inspirational pictures -- it keeps my creative eyes open and makes me think about placing the right quote and photo together.
It also keeps me from obsessing about my weight.
