Everything is SO Great, I Think I'll Move on


RiverLight

So, I went down the list of things today of everything in my life that is happening... one after another GOOD things are happening, I cannot even believe it. I have an amazing boyfriend/almost fiance, I love my new apartment, I have a new full-time job coming, and I am successful in my current role... I just received an $1100 bonus at work for exceeding the benchmark goals! WOW oh WOW EEEEEEEEE!! WHEEEEEEEEEEEE as my boyfriend Ken, says!

So I think I'll take a wee break from here. I always like to come on though to see friends, say hi and offer support when I can. But I feel like my positivity is just rubbing some perhaps the wrong way here..... And trust me, I know what it's like to live through hard times. I've had plenty of them! A lifetime of hard times!!!! So, it is my year to shine, it seems like... finally, I have been given the break in life that I have prayed for, begged for, and longed for... for God knows how long - YEARS!!!!

So, in a way, I feel I deserve this. It's been a long time coming. I am pinching myself though!!! It is all too good to be true! A marriage, a great job, an awesome living situation, and great friends, altogether. Life is GOOD!

PS. When I say I have struggled in life, I truly mean it. This is unknown goodness for me in life. So, it CAN happen. I hope this is inspiring for some at least!!!!

Much Love! ❤️

Hope you do if needed. Please try to enjoy life. Know it's not easy but I sincerely hope you do

TY! You know what's funny? It's sometimes hard to fully enjoy it all because I am waiting for the other shoe to drop, given my history..... but I will enjoy it all... I will make sure I do. :hugs:

That's what I call the roller coaster effect: you go up, see far and wide but of course you know the down part is coming. Wish I had those magic words and tell you that everything will always be ok but we know better. But here's one thing I've learned, and maybe it's easier for me because of my age. I've learned to live within certain confines or fences as my car's GPS calls it. That being said you still have to be spontaneous but with a certain degree of apprehension, eyes wide open and sometimes wide shut. Remember Forrest Gump and his words about a box of chocolates. Lol.

Thank you for your words of advice!! Very sweet of you and great wisdom. I know that not everything will be perfect, and that I may fall down or something bad may happen again..... I just need to enjoy the here and now in knowing that that is how life works... up and down. HUGS!

Txs light. I envy you. Lol. I do.

Awwww.... well, my job offer hasn't been made official yet -- no offer letter yet -- they extended the offer by phone two weeks ago! So I am waiting on the official offer letter.... things may not be as great as I had thought! They're seriously delayed and now I'm wondering what's up. GRRRRRR.

Be patient, the best jobs as life rarely happen quickly. 

One suggestion from my days as a job developer if you haven't done so yet: learn as much about the company and the particular job. Not only will you have a head start it will impress your boss, and you about first impressions. Hang in there. And have plan B and maybe C as a backup. Can't hurt.

thanks! It happened! I got the official offer letter yesterday!!! Wheeeeeee! :hugs:

Oh, I will be sure to make a good first impression when I get there. The CEO told me in his offer letter that after they met me, they stopped interviewing! And I was one of their first candidates!!!! WOW. That's never ever ever happened to me before... somehow, I impressed them to the point of not wanting to interview anyone else.

I am beyond thrilled. Now everything in my life is complete!

TY again for all your kind and supportive replies!!! ❤️❤️

Will be flying back a couple times for wife's follow up but hopefully things will be well with her. Hope to stay off here for a bit but who knows. Lol. Be good to each other, and tell them how much you love now. Don't wait till it's to late.

Wow, lots of travel for you! That's so awesome. I'm happy for you. Yes, live life to the fullest, and be good to yourself, too. :hugs:

BTW, I came back to DF again after starting my new job... more things came up, so of course, I had to come back. LOL. Be well, Vega!

So we thought but we had to return early. Sadly and unfortunately my remaining son lives on the streets due to drug habit. We brought him here to the ranch hoping he would return to rehab but he left during the night when I finally fell asleep. He hasn't answered our calls or texts. Because of what happened to my police officer brother they are really helping us but nothing yet. We've been searching everywhere but again nothing yet and it's extremely hot, killer heat. Not giving up till we find him, whatever the case may be. Please please enjoy your life, NEVER look back, NEVER. With all my heart I wish you the best.

Wow,  I'm SO sorry... I hope he is found!!!! I hope he will be OK! Wishing you all the best... I won't be online for a few days (music festival), but I'll check back here later when I can!

Unfortunately my son was found under a bridge in the wash, he had a stroke and bleeding in the brain. Right now he's unable to walk or talk very much but we are keeping our hope up. It's been extremely hot and humid and the drugs didn't help either; now we travel back and forth to Loma Linda and spend a few days at a time with him. He's young so that's a plus but his future is uncertain.

OMG! That's horrendous! I am SO SORRY to hear this. Yes, please do keep your hopes up that he can recover in time.

I am obviously back on DF.... things are not great -- well just with my new job -- everything else is good.

Hugs and prayers going out to you!!!
