As I write this blog post, it is New Year’s Eve of 2016, a very difficult year for so many. Personally, it was also a year in which I encountered quite a few obstacles and struggles. However, I was able to overcome them all with patience and good strategy.
Many who know me well, know that I have always struggled with the thought of settling down. I tend to be the type of person who loves change and is always looking for the “next best thing”. Part of me feels that this part of me is simply looking for something that doesn’t exist, ie. perfection.
I have realized that I am currently in a place of growth where I am needing to settle down for awhile and grow some roots. Thankfully, the end of 2016 blessed me with an amazing career opportunity within the WordPress community for Pressable. This opportunity affords me much flexibility and the benefit of working from my own home, not to mention travel!
Now that I have found the dream job that I have been looking for, for years, I have resolved that I will be settling down in one location for at least the next 5 years. Instead of apartment hopping which I am so famous for, I have found a new home that I am moving into this summer at The Kennedy at Brooks City Base here in San Antonio.
The apartment has so many features, finishes, and amenities that will allow me to feel like it is my very own home. This is the perfect place for the fact that I work at home all day long. I don’t know what else 2017 has in store for me, but I do know now that I have my dream career and a dream home, it will be so much easier for me to settle and grow some roots here in my hometown. Happy New Year everyone!
