When Life Happens


I had a couple of blog posts that were planned for last week but I never got around to actually writing them. I just wanted to let everyone know why.

Life happened.

My 10 month old started walking and is cutting her second tooth. She has also decided that she doesn’t need sleep which means that I don’t get any sleep either. For example, she took a 15 min nap yesterday and then went to sleep at 7. I’m normally at work during that time so when my mom said that’s what time she has been going to sleep I thought nothing of it. I should have known better though. She woke up at 8:30 and refused to go back to sleep until 1:30 this morning. That’s fine and dandy but mama needs her sleep too.

I also got engaged this past weekend to my boyfriend of 5 months. I love him and can’t wait to be his wife. It helps that he is extremely good with the lo and on nights like these when she doesn’t sleep I wish he were here to help me out. So I will be planning a wedding soon so I will probably be posting about that here as it happens.

I didn’t get the job I wanted/needed. It happens. It’s hard when you’ve been looking for months for a job that fits with your skills. In my case, I have a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering. I only have 2 and 1/2 years of experience so it’s hard to find a job right now. It’s extremely discouraging especially when you have a lot of student loans to pay back.

What do you do when life happens?

Pick yourself back up. Life likes to throw curve balls. It’s how you handle them that shows what kind of a person you are. Things aren’t going completely the way I want them to right now. That’s completely okay. I can’t let the fact that I only have a part-time job right now get me down. Yes I have bills to pay but I haven’t defaulted on them. I pay them on time. I’m barely making it by most months but I’m making it.

Find the good in what’s going on. I may not have the job of my dreams, but I have a job. I also get to marry the man that has completely swept me off my feet. I never thought that would happen for me. (Which looking back is dumb because I’m only 27.) I have a healthy daughter and that’s what matters most to me.

No matter what season you are in, life can be rough. You can make it though. Thanks for letting me share what’s been going on with my life lately. It always helps to have an outlet. Is there anything going on in your life you’d like to share? Let me know in the comments!
