400th Post

This seems momentous! It's been great fun and great expression.

Not so much during the past few months. A variety of reasons have contributed, but the biggest one just may be impetus for the change I am about to make.

I haven't talked about it much, but I got a job back in March. I was sooooooo excited!

Not too many stories from The Tumbler because . . . well . . . because I kept experiencing the not so good and hoping for the best. I think the metaphor goes something like that. Maybe not.

That's the other problem with this problem. How something, somewhere was withdrawing my magic charms. Yes! Those! Heh . . .

I tend to be a stick-with-it person. I don't jump imprudently. I try hard to not be overly impulsive. Think things through. Maybe even a bit stubborn.

The slow, painful realization began pounding into me a change needed to happen. It really hit me on the head when I found myself one Saturday evening designing this t-shirt for myself.
This can't be good I thought.

So change is coming for me. I'm glad about this. It will be a bit of a challenge, but isn't that quintessential? Yep.

Oh good! Positive change is sometimes a must in our lives. Glad you could find something else... here's hoping you settle into it and don't have to wear that t-shirt you designed anymore!

Good luck!!

It's good to try something, give it a good go, and then take action if it isn't working. Your lucky you have an opportunity and are willing to take on the challenge. Good for you!

Holy cow, 400 is beyond momentous in my book! It would take me years and I would be forced to get a life, in order to have something to post about, and that's not likely to happen.

However, I CAN wish you good thoughts in your endeavors!

if you don't try you never know
there is always a lesson to be learned by something that didn't quite work out
hope your new venture is awesome

I love the inspirational quote- change is a terrifying but beautiful thing. Congrats on your 400th post- what an accomplishment!

This is my 3rd blog and I've yet to reach 400 posts. Congratulations, sweetie!

I hate change with the intensity of a thousand suns (can you say 'stuck in my ways') but change IS good.

This gives you roots.

Perhaps it's your time to grow branches.

change gives us branches, letting us stretch and grow and reach new heights."

Congratulations on your 400th post Deborah!! Wow! I'm currently at 199...lol.

Change is good. You are like me. I'm a "stick with it" person too. So with this in mind, when you decide to make a change, rest assured it's most likely the right thing to do xoxo Proud of you!

while change is a challenge, it always brings great things! {but the t-shirt is kind of funny and really every woman could wear it, especially during pms, lol}

Your comment today was hilarious *blushing... thank you ;)
