Happiness (150)


The last of the boxes were placed on the moving truck and Anna pulled the door closed. She took a last look at the house, resisting the urge to go in and check for things left behind. This day was one that she had waited years to come; she never wanted to be here.


Anna’s ex-husband was domineering, he had proved he never cared by ripping their daughter away from her. The biggest hurt came when her mother helped him. Now she truly had no reason to stay, she gave away most of her things and saved up until she could pay cash for a house.

Anna climbed in the driver’s seat and turned the key. Falling on her face was not an option but she was sure that happiness would no longer elude her. 

Where is Anna going? Why isn't she staying to fight? Has she given up? Is she ever coming back? What is going to bring her happiness?

Starting Over. Again.

Life never goes the way we plan and that's okay. We just had a major change that I tried and tried to plan for only to have my plans fall apart every. single. time. It was when I stopped with the obsessive planning and pulling my hair out that it all came together. We're doing pretty good while we make the adjustment to home. Here's hoping that we'll be completely back on track soon.



Until next time, never listen to the voice that says you can't. Find the voice that says Fuck it I'm doing it.

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.
