How to Get a Life.

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 10, 2013, 3:07 AM



Exactly a year and a half ago today, my mother had turned to me and told me something. She had said, "You will never manage in the real world. You will never be independent. Stop trying, you just don't have it in you."

Today, I am happy to say, I have proved her wrong. Because I did exactly what I was supposed to do. I went out and got a life, and the kind of life I am proud of.

Over the last year, I have found my soulmate, completed my Masters, gone to Sweden and South Africa, got a job as a teaching assistant in a special needs school whilst I figure out my PhD and, as of the 8th of March, will be moving to my own very nice apartment with K.

Remember this. If I can do it, ANYONE can do it. I am not special, I am one of the 99 percent, and if I have the strength to fight, it is because you were all by my side every step of the way. Thank you...thank you for being there for me. Thank you for helping me change my world for the better.

I am back for good now, and I am going to try and get answering all the comments I haven't answered yet. I am so sorry about the delay, please please forgive me. :hug:

I love you all. :heart:

So wonderful! You're one of those special people who make other people happy when you are happy, and all of your followers are very happy for/with you! It's very important for people to remember that you CAN do whatever you set out to do, if you just don't give up or give in!
