Is change hard for anyone else? Especially change you didn't see coming?

I want to thank all of you for your kind words and encouragement after my news yesterday. I know this change was meant to happen, it just blindsided me and I was angry. I need time to adapt. Just like I had to adapt when I started back in July. What did I go and do? I got attached. Not just to the money (not that it was a ton, but it was something on top of photography), but to the girls I worked with. I will miss a couple of them in particular, and it will be an adjustment not to have them in my daily life anymore.

This little blip in employment now joins the list of jobs I had in my twenties that I'll look back on one day and say, OH YEAH! I forgot I did that!

I'm pouring my extra time into my workouts, house cleaning, meal preparing, and most importantly, my WIP!

Better things are around the corner, but it's up to me to make that turn.

2012 is my year. Is it yours too??


  1. It's always important to keep a perspective on the bright things in life. Good luck in 2012! :)

  2. That's a great attitude to have on the matter. :) Unfortunately, change won't always be as good as we hope, but as long as we greet it head-on with a grin, it can't keep us down.

    I'm really sorry to hear about the job loss, but it's good to see you're looking at it positively. Good luck! :)

  3. Change can be hard, but it's also a great opportunity for new exciting things. And yes, 2012 is totally my year too :)

  4. I'm not good with change that I didn't see coming. I think it's good that you're filling your time with productive things you love. Yes, I want 2012 to be my year too!

  5. it seems 2012 will be tough for a lot of us, I hope it will bring positive changes in our lives, the ones which make us go forward.

  6. 2012...here we come!!! See you on the other side! :)

  7. You've got such a great attitude. Change can be difficult but it's how we handle it that matters. Good luck with everything!

  8. ohhhhh 2012 is TOTALLY our year! It is gonna rock so hard! I can totally feel it!

  9. This is a good attitude, Kristin! You're totally right - it's all about adapting. Man, I'm going to have to adapt to getting back into regular life next week and I am not looking forward to it at all! I'm glad you have more time to work on your novel. Excited to read it. :)
