I Made It

Saturday, June 19, 2010

I made it to Michigan! I am so wound up and tired at the same time. I couldn't fall asleep and woke up after three hours. Hopefully, I will catch up tonight. I still have to unpack the van, but that will happen when the sun comes up.

My husband gave me and my mother his usual sob story. My mother fell for it; I've heard it a few too many times. Only a lot of counseling and major lifestyle changes can make a difference now.

One thing I did accomplish with my husband: it finally dawned on him that I was depressed from sitting at home by myself with no money and no vehicle. It only took him 5 years of me telling him and my leaving for him to realize things weren't right. Too little too late.

I've got three job interviews set up for Monday. I've got my fingers crossed. I do have a list of employment agencies as a back-up. Mom thought I came up without a plan. Noooo!

I'm feeling determined and scared at the same time. But I'll take one day at a time and see what adventure lies ahead for me.

  


Last Walk

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

Unless a miracle happens and my husbanThed changes his ways forever, this morning was my last walk down my street. I leave for Michigan tomorrow.

The other day, I fought back tears walking down the street, remembering all the pleasant walks. Today, I felt peaceful and serene and just enjoyed the walk. I will soon forget the unpleasant memories. I will keep the pleasant ones forever in my heart.

  


Some Wonderful People

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Some wonderful people have given me great advice this past 24 hours. I have taken it to heart and am working on changing myself. Their advice was great and came just when I needed it. Thank you to those people. I will treasure your comments forever.

  


Bittersweet Walk

Monday, June 14, 2010

Today my walk was bittersweet. I love the walks down my street. One side starts a wooded forrest; the other side is a bay of Lake Guntersville. I've meet most of my neighbors by going for walks. Their dogs have become my walking partners. But I know I have only two more walks down this street before moving back up to Michigan. I got choked up a couple times thinking about this. I know I have to leave. I'm glad I have such fond memories.

  


Peaceful Sunday Morning

Sunday, June 13, 2010

I started on my morning walk at 6:20 am. As I was walking, I really started to notice my surroundings. The sun was coming up, brightening up the day. the birds were waking up and chirping merrily to each other. Other animals were doing their wake up sounds and stretches. I could hear the water lapping at the shoreline. Only two cars passed me today. (There was 27 on Friday.)

Then it dawned on me. God was telling me good morning through nature. I was reminded to be at peace with myself. I am banishing all my negative thoughts today. God wants a peaceful Sunday morning.
