We've all heard the old adage "Be careful what you wish for!". I have definitely learned that lesson this year!
You may remember me writing about leaving the pain behind and filling that hole with the new adventure of college. I can now attest that the hole has been filled to overflowing! I am so busy and so overwhelmed that most days I don't know if I'm coming or going!
I knew I needed to keep busy in order to move forward. I'm not that sure I had quite this busy in mind. Never having attended college before, I honestly had absolutely no idea what I was in for. I do now. I no longer have to worry about filling that hole...I don't even have time to think about it. And that's a good thing. Nothing works better at leaving pain behind than not thinking about it at all.
There is no longer any time to brood, to re-examine, to "what-if" anymore. My days are now filled with what I need to get done, have I finished everything, and "what's next". So much better to live in the land of "what's next" than in the land of "what went wrong". "What's next" is a world of excitement, adventure, and possibilities. It is where I choose to live my life now.
And the adventure continues!
