Welcome 2017

I know that I’m not the only person who is glad that 2016 has come to an end.  It was a very rocky year in which a lot of things changed.  The biggest change that happened for me was that I decided to leave my teaching career.  It was the best decision I have made in a very long time.

I have since gone back to bartending and I honestly could not be more happy.  I enjoy going to work every day.  I thrive on chaos, so working behind a bar satisfies that need.  No two shifts are the same; I get to meet new people daily, and I get to use my knowledge of mixology.  Having a math oriented brain makes mixing drinks very satisfying and simple.

2016 brought the most amazing people into my life.  I met two wonderful Piceses who mean the world to me (even though we do not talk every day),  I’ve met a wonderful, beautiful Cancer who will become my new roommate very soon, and I’ve met two wonderful Scorpios who share my life goals and dreams.  I also met a Gemini who was the first person to ever understand what I go through on a daily basis being an empath and suffering from depression and anxiety.  These people have changed me in ways I never thought were possible, and I wouldn’t trade them for the world.

2016 also brought heartbreak.  My relationship of 3 and a half years officially ended right before Thanksgiving, although in both of our hearts it ended over the summer. Even though I have spent the last two months crying daily and going through our home separating our belongings, it has been a freeing experience, and I have had the support of loving and caring people.

The past couple of weeks leading up to 2017 have been stressful, depressing, and chaotic, but also very revealing.  I am starting to live healthier, cleaner, and happier.  I have gotten back into yoga, I am eating healthier, and I have started back up with my wiccan practices.

So, with that being said, welcome to my blog “Soul In the Fast Lane”.  I will be sharing my journey of spiritual development here.  I hope that you will enjoy taking this journey with me as I find out things about myself I never knew before, try to overcome my depression and anxiety, figure out more about what being an empath really means and how to handle it, and as I make changes to live healthier and happier.

Welcome 2017 and Blessed Be!
