I have a ton of new things to tell you and write about but this little nugget just came to me yesterday.
Yesterday I got some really bad news. Not life altering. But bad news. I found out that I failed a MAJOR exam that I took in July. This is the exam that I must pass to become licensed in my field of study to practice. And I did not pass.
It hurts to write it but it is a fact. And it sucks. But after talking to my mom and my bosses and lots of friends, I've got a grip on it and it's game on. My life was pretty much in total chaos the first time I took the exam. A lot of it was of course my fault and a lot of it was work. Not making excuses, just laying out the facts.
The point is I've spent the past 24 hours going over my life with a microscope and I know exactly what I have to do to make sure this bad news never comes again. I have already started the process to reapply for the test and I am about to streamline my life like no other. I have already cut out a lot of people and will spend most of the weekend cutting out a lot of things from my life. I'm getting ready to move to a new place that is much closer to work and so far out in the country I won't be able to waste time on Netflix or Facebook. And I really couldn't be more pleased about that. I don't, nor will I, have cable TV. As a matter of fact it could be some time before I have a TV at all.
When I move all of the clutter in my life will be left behind and all I'll have time for is work and studying. No distractions. No excuses. I know I should have been more prepared the first time but frankly I deserved to get bit in the ass on this one and that's exactly what I got. I reaped exactly what I put into it and that's not going to happen again.
I can't wait to start this next chapter of my life and I'm glad that you guys are coming with me.
In other news, I've decided to sign up for a blogging challenge for the month of November...so there will be more posts and I expect to see more people than Crossroad Farm commenting!!
Loves and Hugs and Keep your chin up. Life sucks sometimes but look at the big picture. The people I love most are still alive, I'm alive and healthy. And this is a BRAND NEW MONTH. Let's rock it.
