Cool breeze.

As the cool breeze sneaks through my window, I cannot help but feel it represents the clean slate I am now drawing on. For the past seven months, I moved so far forward, but with weights on my ankles. I lived in an apartment that was not mine. I relied on other people’s schedules. I couldn’t get anywhere without someone else to get me there. Everything, now, has changed. I moved into an apartment that never seizes to blow my mind when I think that I accomplished making it mine. I have a car that isn’t too shabby either. I have a new job, that doesn’t seem much like work to me. I continue to meet people who, to my surprise, are becoming decent friends.
With all of this surrounding me, I cannot help but feel that my spirits have been inevitably lifted.

I did it. I put my money where my mouth was and made a life for myself in the land of dreams. I have all the resources that I need to remain mentally strong and constantly moving. I am working on getting myself way more involved in the pursuit and will hopefully accomplish more of my goals now.

As the wind dances through my home, I know that these are the moments in life that matter the most in the end. The moments when you look back and sigh with relief are the ones that mean you’ve done something great. I look back and congratulate myself for getting through all of the challenges that I was faced with.
As I sit at my new desk (yes I will be blogging more now that I have my own space) and sip my coffee, I can see more change to come; more exciting and refreshing change that will continue molding who I am.

I just wanted to offer this update to you! Please let me know how you are doing…I am all “ears” (eyes).

I saw the title of this post and thought you were posting about me! I'm so happy things are going in the right direction for you. I can tell you are going in the right direction because you sound like you are at ease. Working hard and feeling at ease simultaneously is a good sign you are following your dream and that your dream is the right one for you!

Breeze(who would like to think she's a bit cool too ;) )

Nickie, You have made astounding strides to your ladder of accomplishment and success and you should be proud of "yourself!" You have come a long way baby and it has only just begun. I see that you have alot to look forward to in the future as you diligently work so hard to achieve your "dream!" You have so much to be thankful for and it is you who did it. Not to mention that I've been praying you all the way! Love you, A. Elaine
