I’m happy to announce that I am officially moving on July 1! I genuinely could not be more excited. After being bound to living at home for the past few years, I’m very ready to once again be on my own. I may not be moving to Canada like I had originally hoped but I trust that this will bring a lot of peace to my psyche.
I am so grateful that I have the support system that I do. Living at home for the past two years was never my plan. It also wasn’t something that I was super excited about. That being said, it was really my only option. Now, here I am. I am almost three years from my first allergy attack and onset of my medical conditions. I am relatively healthy and ready to start living life on my own again.
This past week has been filled with emotional ups and downs. As I’ve started to picture living on my own again, I can’t help but feel overjoyed. With that though, comes fear and frustration. I still have to take my health into consideration. In fact, it’s the biggest consideration. Part of my difficulty with moving away from home is being further from Mayo and a lot of my healthcare. That makes life a little harder for me. These past few weeks, I’ve spent a ton of time driving back and forth between Mayo and the cities. It takes a bigger toll than I would care to admit. That being said, it’s a necessary evil to ensure my health stays stable.
Let’s focus on the excitement though! I haven’t found a full time job quite yet but I work enough to get by until I do. Everyday I’m scouring the internet for positions within the field of disability. I want to further my career in an intentional manner. That being said, I’m also looking for positions that are just full time. Just in the off chance that my dream job doesn’t come around right now.
I have been piling my stuff into boxes in anticipation for my move. I’m doing my best to get everything together so that the moment the keys are mine I can settle in. The truth is, this move feels good for a lot of reasons. Not only will I be able to settle into my own space but I can start to live autonomously. Moving back home for anyone is challenging at best. For me, it was exponentially harder because I was dependent on help from others. Not only did I not have the means to live on my own, I didn’t have any ability to do so either.
So now we’re here and doing it. I’m going back out into the world on my own, with Crush of course. I feel relatively normal. That is incredibly exciting. I am moving on and learning how life is going to work. I suppose that’s what everyone does, mine is just a little less predictable. Nonetheless, exciting things are happening and I’m very grateful.
I hope that you’re having an amazing day. I hope that your day is filled with joy, positivity, and laughter. I hope you find peace, love, and happiness.
