#BeThankful Moving

For the month of November, I’ll be posting a different thing I’m thankful for every day as a way to help share positivity and remind us to be thankful for what we have. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. I am purposely skipping people I’m close to because of course the first thing everyone will say is their kids or significant other or parents. However, people who inspire me are allowed. If anyone would like to join in, let me know below and use #BeThankful in your post so I can find it.


Today, I am thankful that I moved four years ago. 

Four years ago today, I moved 1600 Miles away from everyone I knew to be with my boyfriend. And I wasn’t the least bit scared because I knew it was the right choice.

I left my mom, my dogs, my cat, my job, my friends. I left the place I had called home for ten years (which is a long time when you moved as much as I did as a kid).

But I’m still with my boyfriend. I have hamsters. I’ve had three different job, two of which I generally enjoy(ed). I’ve made a lot of new friends that I can see being around for the rest of my life. I’ve lived here for four years already, which is mind boggling to me because it feels like I just moved.

If I hadnt moved, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. It taught me how to be on my own as an adult (even though boyfriend and I rely on each other). I know hot to pay bills and get shit done- I learned this week how to handle a doctor appointment and a pharmacy appointment because I’ve never done that alone until now.

Moving turned my world upside down in the best possible way.

#BeThankful No More Stabby Stabby

For the month of November, I’ll be posting a different thing I’m thankful for every day as a way to help share positivity and remind us to be thankful for what we have. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. I am purposely skipping people I’m close to because of course the first thing everyone will say is their kids or significant other or parents.

Last week, I mentioned I had a doctors appointment. Which if you know me at all, you’ll know I only go to the doctor if I absolutely can’t fix it on my own and might actually die if I don’t go. However, I didn’t say why I was going (because I didn’t want anyone to worry).

Now that it’s over and I’m most definitely not dying...

I had an IUD. (Birth control device that chills up in your girly organs).

Said IUD came loose and starting stabbing things it ought not be stabbing.

Was not a fun time.

This morning, I had it removed. (Which hurt more than the stabby so you can imagine how fun that was).

I cannot express the relief that the stabby is gone. That I don’t have to worry about it doing serious damage or causing heavy internal bleeding. That it won’t be fucking with my periods anymore or causing me pain. That it’s gone.

No more stabby stabby!

I understand this isn’t a post most of you can relate to and that’s okay. Because the stabby is gone and that’s kind of all I care about at this moment in time.

If you need me, I’ll be eating everything in sight to celebrate.

(Obviously talk to your doctor before making the choice that’s right for YOU. This is my personal account and experience. But I am not everyone.)
