That's Life

it was not that long ago i decided to shake up my life or shake it out for that matter...call it a quarter life crisis, but i was at a point where i woke up one day and said, enough is enough. it's time to go for it.  i hit a breaking point where nothing seemed to make sense anymore. my relationship, my job, and the life that i was choosing. maybe it was running to florence's shake it out on repeat that inspired me to take a leap of faith or heck, call it cliff jumping but whatever it was, i was inspired to make some changes. 

sure enough, i found myself letting go of my boyfriend of six years, fulfilling my dream of moving home to chicago and starting a new job all within six months. for the first time, in a long time, i was not ignoring that little voice in my head, that gut feeling that was telling me i needed to make it happen. it was energizing, scary, and at times, felt completely insane. it was a lot and happened quickly, but here i am - no regrets.

last night i caught up with an old friend, one of those people that no matter how long it has been, you can pick up right where you left off... i was telling him about the last year, how it hasn't always been easy and it has been a lot. his response, "yea, but that's life. life is like that." he was right. it isn't always easy. it can be confusing and it doesn't always work out the way you imagined. but in the end, i wouldn't have it any other way. in this case, he told you so. :) thank you ty.

here's to waking up, making it happen, and to florence...shake it out. that's life.

but it's always darkest before the dawn...
shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
