Love Will Come To Me

I took a break from blogging for a few days as Valentina was going away for a week to Cindy's and I wanted to spend all my free time with her.  So this week is my week, it is my birthday on Wednesday... I accomplished what I set out to do over a year ago, when I decided I would not be in the same place a year from then, I took off the 80 pounds.  Since I can see how committed I am to making a change I am making new goals, if we don't that is when we fail.

I am excited for some of the changes that are happening, first is school, once I have completed the courses I have a couple of options that I am thinking about. Second I have committed this year to downsizing and preparing to move next year.  I will be in a much better place financially and I will be able to afford a nicer place.... I am looking forward to this move as I would like it to be a place I stay for years to come.  Unless of course I meet someone. Third I have decided not to date until January at the earliest, due to the two courses I will be taking, I wouldn't have time to give anyone right now.
The other thing I plan to do is up my savings so that I will be prepared financially to move, usually I am unorganized and rushing around at the last minute boxing things up.  That is another one of those changes I am making now, I am going to follow a budget by writing down everything I spend, I think once I do that I will start to be a lot more careful.  I used to be the queen of budgets and savings but once I started having a little more money, I felt entitled to spend it.... that was the mentality I had to change, I need to continue to get back to my strong roots of budgeting and saving.  I already have Christmas money and food money saved.

This week is also the week that I am really putting out the effort to walk as much as I can, I really want to get my speed back to where it was last year so that I can work on bettering that one.  It's a good week for me to get my house and my thoughts together, I don't have to think about anything other than work for the next few days. I also plan to get as much rest as possible, that means getting into bed by nine or nine thirty with all social media turned off.  I feel like I took a little more control of my life this week and that feels good.
I have no control over the outcome but I am making my own decisions.  For almost a year I struggled to make any decision and I wondered if I would ever be able to handle one in the future.  Thankfully the future came, believe me there were times I seriously wondered.... Almost a year ago my life changed by 180 degrees and it made me question everything I knew.  Today I made it through all those changes and although it was one of the most painful years of my life, I still believe that love exists and when the time is right, it will come to me.

With my choices and goals preparing me, I know that love will come to me.

  7. Yes! Love will come to you! Your goals and plans sound very achievable and you sound like you are in a great place. Take care, my friend, and happy birthday!

  8. You sound like you have things all together now! I think if you plan to succeed, you will and probably beyond your wildest dreams. I think it's smart not to start a new relationship with your schooling going on. With work, school, home and just keeping up with things you just won't have any time for yourself. I know this will be great for you in the long run though.

  23. I'm so glad I came here today, Launna. Because if I didn't, I wouldn't be able to read all of the inspiring love quotes you included in this post! For sure I was led here for a reason. :-)

    Congratulations on all your accomplishments and for taking control of your life in a lot of its aspects! We may not have control in everything but God still expects us to do the best that we can. Wishing you the best in your future plans!

    And happy birthday to you in advance! ♡ :-)

  29. Not discouraging you to go as planned - HOWEVER - you'd be surprised how you find time when the right person comes along. When I met my husband, I worked a full-time and part-time job and I went to school two night a week. I sacrificed a lot of sleep but it was worth it. Just like that quote says I wasn't looking because it wasn't the right time, but the right person came along and it was the right time. I'm going to say Happy Early Birthday just in case I miss saying it tomorrow. I hope you have a wonderful one.

  32. There is something very freeing about knowing YOU can make the decision to move and where you want to move. I remember picking out the house I bought after my divorce and it was so exciting because I could pick the house out I wanted!

  57. Yeah, what Nikki said.

    I hope you had a wonderful birthday, and a bit of cake to celebrate it. And whatever wish you might have made when you blew out those candles, I hope it comes true. Heck, what am I saying? You're already making decisions and taking steps to MAKE your wishes and dreams come true.

  59. Com muito carinho nesse fim de semana
    venho desejar muitas coisas abençoadas
    para você.
    Feliz dia do escritor .
    Para mim
    escritor é todo aquele ,
    que escreve um livro ou simplesmente
    uma poesia até mesmo quando escolhe um poema só
    O fato de escolher um poema ou um texto
    para postagem não deixa de participar da vida do escritor.
    O escritor esta no coração de cada um de nós.
    Eu não me considero importante mais do
    que ninguém por ter escrito
    um livro.
    Um feliz e abençoado final de semana beijos.
    Evanir.

I love and appreciate all genuine comments, to save a little time, I won't be commenting on the comments on my blog (unless you don't have a blog), I will just visit your blog and comment there, if you have left a meaningful comment for me... I would much rather spend the time reading and commenting on a few extra blogs ❤
