Positive upheaval, aka “moving” right along…

The last several months have been a challenge, but I’m no stranger to challenge.  They have been fraught with loss of friendship, change in job status and the death of a close family member.  On the positive side…they have brought the cleansing of toxic “friends,” the release of being retired, and the end of suffering for a close family member.

It’s all about perspective, wouldn’t you say?  I remind myself often to switch up my thinking and I definitely have learned to see the glass as half full.  It also has taught me not to get caught up in social media drama, such as when a former friend won’t discuss why I’ve been cast aside and then blocks me on social media.  No more.  I’m better than that and deserve more positive people in my life.

I’m full tilt boogie into cleaning up my life. To that end, much is being done around my house as I have the ultimate need to de-clutter.  And that has to do with the “moving” along mentioned above.  That will happen in the next month or so and I’m very excited for the opportunity. A new environment to match my new set of circumstances as a retiree from the field of public education.  While I admit the change is stressful, it will be worth it in the long run.

The change will allow me time to write.  I have so much writing I want to do.  And as I write, I will post updates here as to what I’m doing.  I’m so enthused about my future.  This time of the year used to be crunch time for me:  prepping lessons and a classroom.  But now I’m prepping for my future and am ecstatic.  Join me as the journey progresses.

Stay tuned to “As My World Turns.”  I don’t think you will be disappointed.
