week 42: There have been a few absolutely breathtaking sunsets recently, and on one of those days I had just gotten off of work, less than a mile away from the beach. So off I went to sit and enjoy.
These are just two of the pictures I took that day. I love how the bright the sun made the rocks. No filters on the picture on the left. The one on the right I think I put through the VSCO Cam app.
I plan on visiting this beach quite frequently, though I will be missing the sunsets after a couple more weeks. They will be too early. The price we pay for Fall and Winter.

Despite wanting to keep each of the worksheets separate, life came in again and this week was mostly about hanging out with friends after work and getting acquainted with my new place. Luckily these two worksheets go hand in hand… so here we go a couple days late but still full of truth and heart:
Purging the Past is about getting rid of those unresolved feelings, the ones that pop up during your thoughts of the current and the future. The ones that make you doubt. Purge it, acknowledge it, ruminate for a second or two and then it’s time for Glory Boarding… looking to the same past, but the good parts, the things I did well, doesn’t matter if I was 5 or 25 when it happened, acknowledge it, gain strength from it and let’s go!
Think about your three favorite screwups.
Letting doubt control my decisions.
Create a resume of wonder, what have you done well in your life. Go back as far as you want… use the prompts, etc.

This weekend was a busy, busy one! I worked all three jobs between Friday and Saturday… Saturday was a 12 hour day… and then Sunday was moving day. I have this thing where I can’t just move the boxes into a room and leave it, I need to get a system or a set up going so I can figure out where everything goes. I did that, and unpacked a good amount of my stuff on Sunday.
I’m really excited about how it is looking and feeling. My room has a lower ceiling (and window) in the back half of the room, the front half has regular size ceilings and a closet… I HAVE A CLOSET!!! I’m sorry, just needed to get excited about that for a second, I’ve been without one for almost a year now. It’s nice to have doors to slide closed and have more room to walk around in. And as you can see in the picture on the right, I have a reading spot!
The room was pretty clean on Monday but I still had stuff to pick up from my mom’s. So today it’s not quite how I want it yet. But there will be a (very short) tour soon after I figure out where everything goes and then put pictures and art up!
I’m so excited!!!
In blog news 52 in 52 will be posted later today and then The Fire Starter Sessions will be as normal tomorrow and Friday!

Freedom starts when you can identify the aggravation you’ve been accommodating for so long.

And then my friends. Each has their own quality that I find incredible and inspiring and look up to.
– lack of money for bills and projects
– depression, it’s a cycle I go through and I think it’s situational, but I also think it is caused by my interpretation of things
– doubt, certainty that I’m not good enough
