Is my life turning around?

Thursday, February 10, 2011

I really feel like it is. First my relationship with my boyfriend has made a huge turn for the better after we broke up for a week. We realized we really do love each other and got back together and have been doing great since and even talk about having a family and spending the rest of our lives together.

Now today I just got a phone call offering me a great job, which of course I accepted! It's minutes from home and the pay is good so I can put a dent in that credit card and then work on my student loans. Oh yeah, I can also say good bye to working every Saturday! So not only is my personal life taking a turn for the better, but I can rest easy knowing that when we do commit to each other I won't be going into a marriage burdened with debt that I have to ask my husband to help me with.

I just cannot believe my luck, for the first time in years I really feel that life is looking up for me! The ironic thing is, none of this happened until I accepted the life that I had and make peace with it. When I realized my boyfriend might not love me and made peace with having to go back home to my parents and that I might not (at nearly 30) find a love again at least not one that I would start a family with, he told me that he really did love me and that he wanted to try and work things. We've been much happier since. And then I decided that maybe I was just going to work part-time and be poor my whole life but that it was ok because I was surrounded by people who love and care for me, BOOM! Job offer! Even better - all the decisions that I regretted lead up to me getting this job. I was so sorry I went back to school because of the debt, but during the interview they were so excited to see how much I valued education!

Sorry for long blog, but I'm just so happy now I haven't felt this way in ages! I don't know how long I was laughing and crying after I got that call, but I feel great - and BEST OF ALL - during all this stress (good and bad) I haven't turned to food ONCE and that's how it's staying! Personal, financial and physical health are all lookin' up from here!
