Moving on Up…and Out

So it’s been a year since I moved back home after graduating college and I’m finally moving out! And not only just moving out, but getting an apartment and moving in with my boyfriend. It’s a huge, yet exciting new chapter of my life and I’m excited to see what’s in store.

If I could describe the past year of my life in 3 words I would choose: unpredictable, strenuous and worthwhile. From struggling to find a job within my degree after graduating college to being diagnosed with a rare eye condition, I’ve had a lot of moments where I’ve questioned whether or not I had it in me to continue on. But, as of lately, I’m finally starting to see things come full circle. Just a week ago I received news that not only did I get accepted for a new job, but it also came with an amazing pay increase!

Lemons & Lemonade

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

– Helen Keller

We’ve all heard the phrase, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” at some point in our lifetime. But, what always baffles me is that there’s no recipe for this lemonade. I mean for most, lemonade is more than just water and sliced lemons. It also can consist of sugar (and sugar alternatives), simple syrups, and other sliced fruits. Yet, even once we’ve gotten the ingredients down, how do we know the right ratios. Too much sugar and it’s too sweet. Too little sugar and now you’re left with an unsatisfying, bitter drink. My point being, when life gives you lemons (obstacles), how are we supposed to know the recipe for the perfect lemonade (success). We’ve all had bad lemonade before right? So why would we want that wrong mix in our life.
