Thoughts in my mind

I have so much on my mind lately that I can’t sleep without the aid of 4 ibuprofen + 2 Benadryl.  My brain just won’t shut off.  It sure makes for a long, tiring week.  Basically, I have been thinking of making a couple of huge life changes and I have been hashing things out inside my mind.  A possible job change, from Missouri to Florida, is a distinct possibility, as I applied and interviewed for a spot at a Tampa law firm.  I’m ready, actually MORE than ready, to leave STL for more opportunity, as well as proximity to the beach.  That said, I will be leaving my sister and parents, as well as moving even farther from my daughters, and I almost feel like throwing up at that thought.  However, I’m turning 55 this August 1st, and I can’t keep putting off my own dreams forever.  It’s a huge risk, but to grow and to achieve more, I MUST do it.  Wherever I land, it will be where I hope to retire and live out the rest of my days.  I don’t want to move anymore after that, I no longer want to deal with winter snow and ice, and I want beach.

I want to live my life on my terms.  I’m ready to be me.

  1. I don’t blame you for wanting to get away from Midwestern winters! I grew up in the Midwest and have never liked the winter (the cold, that is). Now that both my husband and I are retired, we are thinking of becoming snowbirds. We’re thinking Southwest – Tucson, maybe.

    1. I visited Tucson once several years ago and the first thing that struck me was …. it’s so BROWN! So different from the Midwest. I really like the Southwest a LOT, but the beach is where my soul feels the best. Thanks for the comments!
