Possibilities

I haven’t had really much to write about these days. My life’s going on as usual; well, as usual as it can be at this point. I go to work, I come home, I hang out with my friends; honestly, my life’s not that different. My drive to work and back’s much longer; I’m glad I have a place to live, but I don’t like the commute much. I live in a town east of South Bend and it takes me 30-35 minutes to drive to work. Yeah, I know, not incredibly long, but I’m used to getting anywhere I need to go within 10-15 minutes.

It’s strange how easily I’ve always adapted to a new chapter of my life. I’ve made many changes in my life through the years; seven years ago, I threw caution to the wind and moved 900 miles away to the midwest, just because I knew it was the right thing to do. I found my way, slowly but surely. I made do with what I had in my situation. I always found a way to make things work.

I feel like I’m entering another new chapter in my life. In a lot of ways I feel like the same person I’ve always been, and in others, I’m different. I’m more myself. I’ve been staying up later, talking more often, going out more. I have a space to myself. I’m planning to travel more often this summer. I don’t want to sit still and let life drift past me any longer. I’m going to do and be instead.

I’m excited about the possibilities the future holds.

  1. You are entering a new chapter! And it will be positive, despite all the hard times you may have gone through to get to it. You are a beautiful and exciting person, and the part in your post that says “I’m more myself” speaks volumes. Be yourself! And enjoy who you are, because a lot of people’s lives will be changed for the better when you meet them.

  2. opening a new chapter is a good thing. you’re going to do amazing things. :)

    Hey Aubrey,

    I just popped in wondering how things were going with ya’ll and I came upon your news. I am sorry to hear it. Having gone through similar fun three years ago I can empathize with you. Hope you are doing well.

  4. “I threw caution to the wind and moved 900 miles away to the midwest, just because I knew it was the right thing to do.”

    That is sort of what I did last year by moving to Pennsylvania. It was a frightening experience to decide to take a new job and move to a state I had never visited. But so far it has worked for me. I hope that this new chapter in your life will bring you a new perspective and that you don’t feel overwhelmed by it.

    The commute does suck. I agree.

  6. i replied on yr livejournal feed but wanted to make sure you got this (not sure if you do there):

    Your personal growth amazes me. You seem very comfortable in your own skin and knowing who you are.

  7. I’m really, really sorry to hear about the divorce news. However, I think you’re handling it with grace, dignity, and determination. I’m glad you two have both decided to take the “high road” of sorts and part ways on such an amicable note. That’s to be admired.
