I got a little “ding” to my Gmail…
It’s been 8 years since I started my blog. When I started, I was in the beginning stages of a very long, drawn out, and emotionally taxing divorce. I was struggling with my depressive side of my bipolar, a looming lady part surgery.
I have had so many ups and downs in those 8 years. I wouldn’t change a single one on my timeline, because I wouldn’t be the Sass I am today without them.
Thing 1 graduated during Covid-round 1. He’s now working at UPS, and has his learner’s permit. Thing 2 just finished their first year of high school with no major incidents, and is focusing on art. They can’t decide which art school they want to attend, but Ringling School of Art in Sarasota is often at the forefront. Taking Thing 1 to and from work has helped Mom with her grief-though she went readily admit it. My sister and brother-in-law have managed to help my niece through her sobriety AND she graduated early. Our little family is funky doing more than treading water since Daddy died.
I went to my old job today, to try and see someone..I ended up seeing 2 others and told them both, “I wish I had just rode everything out and not left.. But then I wouldn’t have met Hotel Guy, and I wouldn’t be embarking on a grand adventure soon.”
It’s been over a year that Florida and I broke up-mutually and no ill-will towards him. In fact, I wish him the best and success and happiness. It took me almost a year before I decided I wanted to try and “date”. Enter Tinder and Match. Please don’t judge, it’s been quite an interesting and fun ride-pun intended 😏😏.
ANYWAY…back to the story. I’ve been presented the opportunity to go finally go live my life. My mom, sister, and Things 1&2 are encouraging me to go, to finally spread my wings and fly. Indiana has never been home, even though I am a born and raised Hoosier. I am going to go do some amazing things. The job market here is shit, and I’ve been having WAY better luck out west. I am excited and I’m starting to be scared shitless.. but I did the same thing when I went to NOLA last August and Mississippi last September. But I fucking did it, and I’m going to fucking do this!
Y’all, I am ready to spread my wings and fucking soar, like the majestic Phoenix I am, and the magical Pegacorn that has gifted me this path. My Runes, my crystals, my Voodoo Gods, and ALL of my witchy energies have lined up, and I can see my path for quite a long while. Now, it’s time to travel it.
Here’s to another 8 years, Tribe.
Sass, out ✌🏼
