The Winds Of Change, They Are A Blowing

Well, it’s time for that life update! So, what could it be? What is this change that could bring about greater things in my life? Well, it’s something very simple, yet can have such a profound effect on one’s life! If you guessed that I’m moving, then ding ding ding, you’re correct!

A move in and of itself doesn’t guarantee greater things, but it can open up new opportunities. I’m still going to be in Texas, but not in sleepy little Sanger anymore. Instead I’ll be in the Austin area; Round Rock to be exact. Austin is really booming right now, and there will definitely be a lot of opportunities down there, potentially.

What precipitated the move was Time Warner Cable (Where my dad works) getting bought out by Charter. They’re Spectrum now, and my dad had to be willing to move or find another job. One of Spectrum’s sites is in Austin, and that’s where he’ll be working starting in September.

Since I still live with my parents, this move obviously impacts me, but I’m happy about it. I don’t really have anything here. There’s no job, school, girlfriend, or friends tying me down to this area. So, I’m ready to go!

As you can imagine though, things are starting to get hectic in preparation for the move. It’s hasn’t been easy, and it’s going to get more crazy. But, I believe the end result will be worth it.

The thing is, we won’t be moving into our permanent residence right away, since it’s being built. We’ll be in temporary housing for at least two months, and most of our stuff will be in storage for the same amount of time. In essence, we’ll be in limbo for awhile, until the house is finished. And then my sister Kelly won’t be there with us for awhile, but that’s another story. My other sister Ariel will have to start school while we’re in temporary housing, which is gonna be hard. So, it will definitely be challenging times, probably for the rest of the year. There’s a ton of uncertainty, but I’m certain we’ll pull through it.

For me, there’s several reasons why this move is exciting!

1. Simply because it’s a new place.

It really is a simple thing, but our surroundings can have a huge impact on us. Being in Sanger had its good moments, but there are a lot of bad memories I can associate with this place. It’ll be nice to start fresh in a new area, with new people, and new opportunities.

2. Austin is booming.

Austin is one of the hottest spots in the whole country right now, let alone Texas. People are coming from all over the place to move down there, for the opportunities that are there for the taking.

3. I’m ready to move forward with my life.

I really feel like it’s finally time. You know, I’m thirty now, and I still haven’t really done much with my life. To me, it’s now or never, and I’m tired of the same old same old. I’m ready to push forward in a variety of ways in my life, and blossom like the rose. It’s time to prove any doubters wrong, and fulfill the potential I’ve always had. It’s not going to be easy, and things aren’t going to change over night. But I am determined, let me tell you!!!!!!! And I’m interested in seeing what will happen. The possibilities are exciting for sure!!!

There’s a ton more I could say, but I think this is more than adequate for now. I wasn’t kidding when I promised a life update. And I did end up writing more than I had planned, but you guys deserve it! I really appreciate all the support from those that follow me. People like Marica, Feyenigma, Kim, Lucas, and all of my followers, are the salt of the earth. I can’t express enough thanks, especially considering that I’m absent so much on here.

But, hey, three entries this month is good, right??? LOL!!! So, thank you so much!!! I hope you enjoyed the update, and I will definitely make future updates about my life, as things continue to evolve. I don’t know how active I’ll be on here in the coming weeks and months. But, we’ll see! A huge thank you, to anyone that took the time to read all of this, and let’s soar into the future, together!!!

It May Not Cure All Ills…TOTD 7/24

It may not cure all ills, but a smile can take you a long way. It really can lift the soul up from the doldrums of self-doubt, and decay. Besides what it can do for you, it can also greatly improve the moods of those you are with. A smile is free, but it can pay you back quite handsomely. Perhaps, even more than you can realize!

Happy Fourth & Upcoming Life Update!

I want to wish everyone a happy 4th of July!! May everyone stay safe, and have a great time. I also wanted to make it known, as I’ve shared with a few of you, that I’m going to be making a more personal entry soon. A life update, basically! And it’ll be coming sometime this month.

I wouldn’t call it the most earth shattering change ever, but change is coming, indeed! It’s really what could come out of this event, and not the event itself, that’s more significant. But, something has to get the ball rolling, and that’s exactly what is getting ready to happen.

I was thinking of making this upcoming entry pretty big, but I think I’ll try to get straight to the point. Life’s getting ready to get more busy and hectic, so I don’t know if I’ll have the time to make something more elaborate. I also don’t know if I want to make such a huge entry anyway, but we’ll see. Once I start writing it, who knows where I’ll go with it. Don’t hold me to any promises made, LOL!!! 😀

Once again, I wish everyone a happy fourth, and please look forward to the update!

With Love,

J.E. ^_^v
