Every time you sit on the throne at my mom’s house, that picture is what stares back at you. So, you have no choice while you’re handling “business” to contemplate your life’s decisions…As I sat there a few days ago thinking about this day, the day that I turn 32 years old, I began to reflect on the current state of my life. I packed my stuff in Little Rock and moved my entire 1 bedroom apartment into my childhood room in my mom’s house in Georgia. Yes, you read that correctly!! An entire 1 bedroom apartment inside of ONE bedroom! So, you can imagine the boxes piled everywhere, the not being about to find anything, and the maneuvering around everything just to get in and out. I did not know if I would have another job, but I knew that I would not endure another year at my last job. My decision to move home was me taking that first step and forget a whole staircase…I saw NOTHING. There was no step. There was no shadow of a step. I had absolutely no idea what I would do…
Fast forward about a month later…I have just played in Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure/CityWalk for 3 days on a birthday trip that I have been talking about since they announced the expansion of The Wizarding World of Harry Pottery in Universal Studios 2 years ago. I am waiting to roam the Bahamas on a family vacation with my family. Upon my return, I will be flying to the US Virgin Islands to look for my new home in preparation to start my dream job. The job that I have been talking about for the last 4-5 years. If I do say so myself, 32 is looking darn good on me!
So I ask you:
1. What is your first step?
2. When are you taking it?
