2014… I finished my program at a trade school, got certified, got a new job, got engaged. I basically got everything that I had been working towards. Life was good, and I was genuinely happy. Then, without notice, the train I was on slammed its brakes and all the carefully packed luggage on my train was strewn about. First it was just a tear in the wedding/relationship bag. Then I noticed a hole in my family suitcase, I had lost a very important person and was left with a huge void that will probably be around forever. The more I looked around, the more I noticed rips and slices in other aspects of my life. Friendships, work relationships, finances, even my health. My train was derailed, completely off its tracks and left stuck and stagnant. No moving, no forward progress and it’s unbelievably frustrating. All the plans I had, are going nowhere, and neither am I. I don’t know how to get my train back up and running but something needs to happen, and soon. I can’t be stuck where I am forever. I am getting restless in almost all aspects of my life and I need something to change.
