Insight of the Day

Came across a quote today that sums up how I feel about things quite nicely. I also just love that it came from one of my fave funny ladies! 

"Don't become something just because someone else wants you to, or because it's easy; you won't be happy. You have to do what you really, really, really, really want to do, even if it scares the shit out of you." 

-Kristen Wiig

Country Sunset

Some views you can never get sick of. Just another one of the beautiful sunsets on the farm.

Insight of the Day

"Remember, the thoughts that you think and the statements you make regarding yourself determine your mental attitude. If you have a worthwhile objective, find the one reason why you can achieve it rather than hundreds of reasons why you can't."

It's About Time That I Vent a Little

You know, when I decided to go in a slightly different direction in my career, I could never have imagined the obstacles that I would have to overcome...not even close! I knew it would be challenging of course, but I could have never ever in my wildest dreams imagined this. I try my best to stay positive about it all, but sometimes I just have to sit here and vent about how much this blows!

I'm in some weird area where I don't have x amount of years in a certain industry or the highly regarded Bachelor's if that makes me incapable of doing a great job! I think people can sometimes forget that a piece of paper doesn't necessarily make you a better candidate or any smarter than someone with a College Diploma. My passion and drive to succeed and to prove myself along with all the skills I've learned along the way would make me an awesome addition to any team. I really just need one person to see that...seriously, all it will take is ONE person to take a chance on me.  

On the flip side, I'm not even a good candidate for a "crappy job" as people love to call them since I've held a great job for nice period of time that they know I am over qualified and would be bored. I know this because I've actually been told by someone who was nice enough to have that conversation with me and not just let my resume sit in the black hole of the internet. 

So where does this leave me? Not anywhere that I want to be, that's for sure. The problem is, is that I have no idea what to do about it anymore. I'm at a loss and need help. Maybe something new and different to try? That being said, I do know to at least to not give up and to keep plugging away at it and have faith that someone out there will take a chance on me. I'm worth it, I promise.

It's my Blog and I'll Blog When I Want to!

I've taken a very long break from blogging over the past year. There are times that I feel very guilty that I haven't written, but then I remember that the only person who actually cares about that, is me. 

I have nobody to be accountable to other than myself. This is my blog and it's for me. It's a place where I share what I am feeling or thinking when I feel like it...and the fact is, I have not felt like writing over the last year. Well, that's not entirely true either, there have been plenty of times where I have needed to write, and have, but kept it to myself. Sometimes, as much as I like sharing parts of my life on my blog, there are some things that I refuse to blog about.

This past year has been a real challenge for me. Lot's good, some bad. I've made big steps forward, but also had many setbacks. There have been many times where I just felt like banging my head against a wall over and over out of frustration.
Yeah, just like Dobby there. Just. Like. That. Over and over again. I love Dobby. Anyways.

I have decided that I am going to try and blog more often. I'm certain I am going to have more to blog about this dealing with turning 30 and the expectations that I had for myself and my life by the time I turned 30, you know, things like that.

Thank goodness for amazing family and friends though. They are the reason that I was able to make it through the last year with just a few little bumps and bruises. I love them with my life and am so grateful to be so blessed.

Until next time,



Peak of Whistler

This was one of the best moments of my life: Sitting at the Peak of Whistler. Absolutely stunning.
