Finding Peace Unexpectedly

Sometimes when we make changes in our lives it has a tumbling effect - such as any natural change.

Our change came when we just recognized a pattern of spending that was wasteful. We felt compelled to make some deliberate changes. One of those changes was getting rid of Direct TV, getting a Firestick and utilizing Hulu, Amazon Video, music channels and Netflix for less than a quarter of what we were paying.

I Had Abandoned Life Here

I am back.

We (Matthew & I) made some major life changes.

#3 - Meet up with 2 Friends outside of work (yes- I am a recluse when I am off work)
#4 - Plan our Anniversary Trip
#5- Work on Book (at least 2 new chapters)
I want to use this as my brain storm room so anything can go - I categorize too much and don't just break free and enjoy.

Why did I leave? I love it here.
