Our Appetizer.: Is it really over?!

January 9, 2014

Is it really over?!

Is this really happening? I truly can’t believe this is happening. Have you ever felt like you were in a dream and you woke up but you were still dreaming? That’s how I feel. I feel like this is another moment of  impact. If you've ever seen the movie The Vow, you understand what I’m talking about when I say a moment of impact. And if you've never seen the movie, then you have to see the movie because it’s great. So anyways, a moment of impact involves the potential for change. It has the ability to crash things closer together while sending others further apart. We are always looking and waiting for the next moment of impact.

My biggest moment of impact was more emotional and mental than anything I've experienced in a long time. It had me thinking, beaming with pride and accomplishment, it had the people around me beaming with pride. This moment of impact was when I was offered my first real big girl full time position. This is something I've wanted, dreamt of and worked towards for years and it is finally here, almost. My first day on my first big girl job is Monday and I couldn't be more excited, proud, nervous and scared. This position has come unexpectedly but is very welcomed.

When I was younger I always wondered what I would be doing when I was in my 20s, what would I look like, would I have any kids, would I even be married and I also wondered if I would have made myself proud. Well younger me, I did it (kind of). While I’m not married or even engaged, it’s ok. It’s ok because I am in a happy, healthy, loving, hating, laughing, raw relationship. And for the kids part, that will come with time (lots of time). I’m young let me enjoy my new full time position, let me enjoy the travels I still have to plan and enjoy being young with My Guy.

So my Co-Op days are over and real life begins, wish me luck!

*P.S. check back for celebration posts (there might be a few too many).
