And so, it begins...

My mother always told me, "God never gives you more than you can handle."
Right now I'm wondering, "Who the hell does God think I am??"

In the past six months my life has gone from sweet and simple (with hints of dull and boring) to a full throttle roller-coaster that you would definatley have to be-this-tall to ride!  I'm not complaining, in fact it's a very welcome change, it was just a bit unexpected. 

Four months ago I had recently moved back to Vancouver, I had just signed a one year lease on an amazing Yaletown apartment with my fiance, I was working for a very promising company, and everything seemed to be going the way it was supposed to. 

Except for one thing: I was a zombie.

I woke up one day and was shocked at how a series of seemingly small comprimises over the years could have led me so far from where I wanted to be.  I didn't even know where I wanted to be, but I knew it wasn't where I was and that if I didn't make some drastic changes I would never get to find out.

The past three months have been dedicated to one thing: finding out What I Want.  I left my fiance of seven years, setting us both free to find our own paths.  I have enrolled in an eight month training program to change career industries.  And most recently, I broke the lease on my beautiful apartment, said good-bye to my view of False Creek and moved into a charming two bedroom apartment in a character house with a very good friend.

The best part: I AM ALIVE!!!
