I saw it from across the crowded thrift store and decided immediately that it had to be mine. A paisley print love seat that would look perfect in my new apartment.
And it does, doesn’t it?
It’s the very first piece of furniture that is sitting in my new home.
I hadn’t been to a thrift store since my late teens.
When I stopped to think about it this weekend, I realized there are a lot of things I used to do that I haven’t done in years.
I’ve been so busy trying to “make it” as a single mom that I’ve had little time to stop and enjoy my life.
Going Going Going.
Swimming Swimming Swimming.
I felt like I had to keep moving forward or I might never make it.
As I sat in my love seat today and looked around my empty apartment that will soon be filled with all of our things I realized something…
I’ve made it.
Of course as soon as it registered, my mind immediately began churning to come up with my next goal to work towards that would symbolize me REALLY making it.
The truth is I will ALWAYS be able to come up with another goal to reach or a dream to have, but what’s so wrong with my life right now?
I worked hard for this love seat and the apartment it’s sitting in. I busted my ass for three years to be financially independent again.
It’s time to enjoy it.
I have a review post going up Thursday of the awesome Kia Rio I got to test drive for a week, but after that I might not blog as often as I usually do and I hope you all can forgive me for that.
I brought home the bacon and now I’m going to stop and smell it for a little while.
