1 week from today my world went from all planned out to woah! where do we go from here?!! But, in the past 7 days I have realized a few things
  • you can only cry so many tears in one day
  • before the tears force you to look in the mirror and see who you really are [&/or that you are an ugly crier]
  • people will support you and lift you up when you are at a low point, usually more than you expected them too
  • getting opinions from others about your future can be good and bad, frustrating and uplifting.... you get the picture huh?
  • my husband is my #1 cheerleader without a doubt

  • when doors slam in front of you - you sometimes just have too look for the next open one
  • i get bored even easier than i thought - and that makes me want to clean, which i hate
  • when you haven't worked for a year - and have 1.5 degrees - finding a job is tricky
  • i can still smile because even though life might not be going as planned, plenty of things are still going beautifully and i at the end of the day i am still me

I love self-realizations. Gratitudes and appreciation will get you very far.

I am a very ugly crier. No pouting cuteness. Just red blotches and glassy eyes.

(((Hugs))) What a great outlook you have. I am SO glad you have a loving a supportive husband, that picture of you two is adorable.

I am also a very ugly crier. No worries. Just keep remembering that the tears will go away eventually, and you will figure this out!

Amazing post, a wonderful way of looking at things.

I couldn't read along and not post. I'm really empathizing with you because my husband struggled with the bar exam coming out of law school. I know how demoralizing it can be. He's now five years into his career as a successful attorney (he appealed his bar exam score and won).

Anyway, good luck, you've got lots of people (real and internet, it sounds like) cheering you on, whatever you decide to do. :)

I agree with every single thing you said!

Oh & um, you make good banana nut bread, huh???? :)

The last item is the best one. I love it, and I love you for saying it. I hope that didn't sound too stalkerish, but you know what I mean! :)
