What do I Title this One?
I have no idea what to title this one because it's just a post about my thoughts recently. I have been doing some serious big girl shopping lately. I am now the proud owner of a giant bookcase, a beautiful bed frame and this week, I will become the proud owner of a living room set. As I looked around my spacious room at the super cute arrangement I have come up with, I realized that these things don't make me happy. They never have and they never will. I guess I couldn't hack it as some 87 year old's trophy wife. Here's the deal, I now have a full realization that my career and my things don't determine or define me as a person. My relationships with people do. I hope that all my loved ones know exactly how I feel about them because I try my very best to always be improving our relationship. This is a tough road for me to be traveling right now because my career IS taking off and I am thankful for this great blessing, but I think it would make a lot of other people much more fulfilled than it makes me. I keep relating my new furniture to the idea of "setting up a single life"....am I going to be the next (MUCH less spiritual) Sheri Dew? It's possible. Until then, I look forward to an amazing year of teaching, playing with my friends and figuring myself out some more. There's always more room for that! If you're reading this, I hope you know I love you! ( And thanks for all the support, it's been tough lately)
