It is with great relief that I write this post. I usually like to paste links to wonderful and uplifting songs that people should listen to. I like to think of it as brightening a persons day. Today I get to post about recent events. Normally, I don’t like to post about myself because I don’t think anyone really cares. Not that they don’t “care,” I just think that people would rather hear about good news. For the past few years i’ve been extremely confused and lost in my own life choices. I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world, gain wonderful life experiences, and I have been graced with great friends. However, recently I’m back at home, over 30, and feeling completely and utterly useless. I have distanced myself from others in order to spare them from the emotional black hole has been my life. Thankfully, after months of sending out resumes and doing interviews, I finally received an offer. The first person I told was my mother, who immediately dropped the groceries she was holding and gave me a tearful hug. Of course, if you know me, you know that I am an absolute sucker for a woman crying, and this being my mother I couldn’t help but hold back the tears. I guess her relief was greater than mine. I hope that I can spend the rest of my life trying to make her proud and pay her back for all of the opportunities she has paved for me. For now, at least I can bring her relief in knowing that I will be ok. To all mothers everywhere, you are truly loved and appreciated.
