Growth Spurt

My life is going through some pretty big changes right now.  As you know if you are a frequent reader of my blog, sometimes I get a little overwhelmed.  I get all discombobulated and do my fair share of whining ... at least here on the blog.  I am sure all my belly-aching gets a little old, but it's my blog and I can whine if I want to, right? 

This place is like my safe haven.  A place where I can let my hair down and vent a bit.  It's where I do a little soul-searching and maybe, just maybe, seek (and occasionally find) a little slice of peace in my otherwise topsy-turvy world. 

There's been some changes lately though, that might not be so obvious here on my blog.  I have had a growth spurt of sorts.  As with most growth spurts, there's been some pain and a few tears shed.  I've felt a bit awkward at times as I've flexed my new wings.  It hasn't always been easy for those around me to accept and I'm sure I will continue to ruffle a few feathers as I gather strength. but it's gotta be done.

I have to admit I was a bit resistant to the change at first too.  When I hit a road block it was easy to just slip back into old patterns and behaviors.  I may be a slow learner, but I began to realize that the old way of doing things was not going to work anymore.  Like it or not, change was/is the only option.

I'm still a work in progress ... heck I'm sure I will always be ... but I kinda dig the "new" Me.  She's a tough ol' bird and she's getting stronger every day and that's a good thing cuz life is just getting crazier by the minute around here!
