Adjusting to life...
"Every accomplishment starts with the decision to TRY"
Literally just looked up from my computer and saw this quote on the wall of the coffee shop I came across and been sitting at for hours now... so it inspired me to write this.
Just wanted to add an update about my life in hopes of maybe inspiring, uplifting, or if that doesn't work, boring you even more than you already were prior to deciding to read my blog :) haha.. or whatever this does for you.
So, my life has taken a crazy (nothing too wild) turn. It all started with a thought. Although I was happy where I was with the people that surrounded me and the people i worked with. I knew it wasn't what I wanted to keep doing. Something about me was "cranky" even though I was happy and nothing was wrong I was cranky about not knowing my next direction or what exactly it was that I wanted to do.
I had to drop my classes AGAIN due to my work schedule constantly changing and it was affecting my school attendance ... and well school is NOT cheap so I had to once again "temporarily" let that go (I'm still going to get my degree though).
Nonetheless, nothing was really going where I wanted anymore and it wasn't up to anyone but myself to fix that, so i did.
I remember telling one of my friends "I applied for this new job, doubt I'll get it because they are super picky and a thousand people apply... but it was online and i was bored so I applied anyways" and now months later here I am ... temporarily moved into a new city where some days are colder than others but it's still hot like summer.
The Flight Attendant training itself was quite the experience. I met amazing new people and I studied my butt off because it was technically like I never dropped out of school but rather changed my major lol. So whenever you look at your friendly flight attendant don't just think they got the job because of their pretty face and warm smile.... theirs soooo much more to it!
I'm not a girl who plans. I never know what to expect I just go with the flow and follow the path that feels right and that's what works for me.
However, it does have its consequences... I just assumed I'd get lucky and get to stay in Atlanta forever and that quickly backfired the second day of training when it was announced that i'd be going to Minnesota (it's near Canada) for those of you that are like "WHERE?!" lol.
Luckily and thankfully I have a friend who lives here and has been nothing but amazing since i've gotten here.
As the planner that I am not... i thought i wouldn't need my car here so I didn't care to bring it nor plan accordingly. The second day of my arrival I realized that it was a huge mistake after I was a walking human carrying my luggage EVERYWHERE with me ... which eventually led to me getting my purse stolen -_- poor planning more often than not leads to bad stuff .. but it's always a lesson.
Lucky for me I have AMAZING parents who love me dearly and offered to make the much dreaded 17hour drive to my new home. So today I as drove around in my car and got to explore a little of the minnesota life.... I can say that everything's falling into place and it feels like I am supposed to be here. Like this is where i am meant to be, for now working a job that I actually enjoy .. meeting people from all over the world. It's exciting, it's raw, it's new. I have never been a person who likes nor enjoys routines so this is my happiness.... I am no longer cranky. I am grateful for my cranky feeling that awoke a sense of discomfort within me that made me change aspects of my life that needed to be changed.
If you're feeling "cranky" don't ignore the feeling and do something about it... you'd be surprised on how quickly things can change.
Currently sitting alone at a coffee shop in an unfamiliar city but i do not feel lonely. I feel content with the choices I've made and the path that I'm on. I will not say it's all daisies and butterflies because it does suck to be away from home and the people I hold dear to my heart... to me that is the most challenging part about this crazy experience that has just started but I can feel the support and love from everyone and that fills me with the energy to keep at it. I cannot wait to continue my journey and see what crazy adventures I get into. I hope to share them all here with you all.
I hope that all of you reading this are in your happy place doing what you love... if you're not I'm sure you are working hard towards it. DO IT... it's worth it.
Thanks for reading
