Finally happy

Friday, February 08, 2013

It is has been a week and a half since I quit my job and I had no idea how stressed I was. I can actually sleep through the night, I have more energy, I am SO much happier and I physically and mentally feel good. I really had no idea how bad it was. I knew I was stressed but what it was doing to me was crazy! It still feels like I am on vacation or a break but very happy with my decision. It is nice to wake up and not have to worry about things. I wake up happy and stress free which is amazing. I haven't had that feeling in a very long time. I keep myself busy by keeping the house semi-clean and cooking every so often. The one thing that is hard is being home all day and having food all around! I am notorious for snacking, so I am trying hard to keep freggies around so when I do feel the urge to eat, it isn't crap food.

My parents are coming next week for a bit and then I will return to MI with them to relax there. I am super excited to see my friends and family - it has been WAY TOO LONG! I am slowly looking for jobs, no immediate rush but can't stay at home forever. I am going to update my resume and see what is out there. I am excited about this new chapter in my life.

I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday! emoticon
