“You were meant for amazing things.”

flowers in cupTomorrow is my 34th birthday. I am not afraid of the number or the fact that I am getting older or that more and more wisdom highlights seem to appear on my head every month. (Thank God for Revlon hair color)!

But if you follow this blog you know that the past month has been extremely hard. I’ve handled it better than I expected, but there were still slip-ups. I behaved, for the most part, as expected – devastated that a relationship to a man I loved for nearly 6 years just didn’t work out. That is life, right? You have to just go with what comes your way.

So I have a new plan, a new direction. I am moving to somewhere I have never been. I will know one person there. The transition will be difficult – from boring to living again – but I welcome it.

I have fun plans with my family tomorrow, a family who supports this next step in my life.

My best friend commented tonight that I sounded happier and more excited than I had in awhile and I guess she’s right.

Tonight I am listening to the band “Sleeping at Last” on my iPod. There is a beautiful song titled “Umbrellas,” and in it the singer says, “You were meant for amazing things.”

I am.
