Changing

Monday, April 13, 2015


Have y'all ever noticed when change starts happening it seems like it's just the snowball effect? It just like new things start happening and just don't stop? No? Maybe that's just me. But that's how I feel lately.

I feel like a lot of things have been changing in my life. Some of the things are amazing, and some of them not so much. But I feel like with change, you have to take the good with the bad. And so I want to just have some real talk today.... good stuff style. I know I'll have another real talk but right now I just want to hold off on throwing everything out there.

I think it all started with my new job. And honestly, I'm so glad I got this job and started this snowball effect. I am in love with my job. I have the best boss in the world and work with truly awesome people.

So after the new job, I got the hugest itch to buy my new car that I had been wanting for many, many months. So I went out and got my brand new 2015 Chevy Cruze. Which I absolutely love, by the way. It's my baby. I have already washed it once and vacuumed it twice. I'm pretty much obsessed with it. ....And I have to share my "night of buying a new car" selfie.

(Sorry about the horrible quality, I was so excited I didn't care)

Now, not only do I have my new job, but I'm also being changed from first shift (7 am to 3:30 pm) to second shift (2:30 pm to 11 pm). It's going to be a huge adjustment and a little less of a social life, but I'm trying to see the positives. I can use this time for some much needed personal time/growth.

And because I have had all this change happening, I feel like my blog hasn't gotten as much attention. I remember a time when I was constantly thinking about my blog and trying to gain more followers and do things to it and whatever. But I honestly can't say that I would go back to that. I love having a more of a life and things to do.

However, with my newly found career and life, I don't always have time to post 5 days a week. And sometimes when I come in from work I don't feel like getting on the computer to reply to comments. But I don't want y'all to think that because it takes me a few days to reply, or read your blogs that I don't care anymore. I still care about all of my blogging friends and hope that y'all will bare with me while I'm going through this time when things are greatly changing in my life.

I love y'all and hope you will continue reading!

  8. I definitely understand that things get chaotic when you're always working. I don't update the blog as much as I want to because when I'm not working 55 hours a week, I'm exercising or enjoying life but the blog keeps me accountable because I don't want to bug everyone on Facebook about my fitness.

  10. I feel you girl! Changing schedules and unexpected events are a part of my daily life (mainly due to my husband's job) and it can be so hard to fit in everything. But it sounds like these changes are great for you! Keep it up - and of course I will keep reading. :)

  15. Yes Melissa! Sometimes it can be so hard to see that change is good, but it's better than focusing on the bad.

  16. That is a great way to look at it Elizabeth. I always knew God had plans for me, however I sometimes get upset because I don't know what they are. Control freak over here!
