I feel like the last year has been an emotional roller coaster for me.  Last Spring, I began playing for the Indy Hoydens.  Soon after that, I met Bam Bam.  After 5 inseparable  months I was engaged, and 2 months after that I wasn't.  It was about that point in time where I just wasn't thrilled with my job anymore.  I looked for other things, interviewed a bit, but there's not a lot of options for someone with an English degree.  But my ongoing pulmonary problems made it very clear that staying where I was for much longer wasn't an option.  I wasn't happy, and working in a cold warehouse full of dust and animals wasn't helping- I was angry, alone, and in quite a bit of pain.  I had a good heart to heart with my dad about the direction I wanted my life to go vs how it really was and he and I made a plan.  More specifically, we made a business plan.

And it's been a few months, and there's still a lot of work to do, but I will be going in to business with my dad this summer. My last day of working for someone else was yesterday and while it was ugly and dramatic, I'm glad it's over.
I spent most of yesterday in a sort of shock- my life had completely changed direction but it's not a bad thing. It's just a different thing.  And this morning I saw that I had 2 Peace Lillies about to bloom, so I'm going to take this as a sign from the universe that I'm doing the right thing for me and everything is going to be just fine.

Wow! I had no idea about the job situation. I'm glad you've made a choice that's good for you, and I can't wait to hear more about the new business! I think you're right to take the peace lilies as a good omen. Congratulations!!
