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!
