Just Some More Ramblings

Holy heck! Where did the time go? I have just been so busy. I honestly don't know what I've been doing besides working, but I've been busy. Work is going great so far. I'm learning a lot and hopefully soon will be picking up some more tasks.

Besides work, as I've mentioned my life if going through lots of changes. Sorry for being vague, but it's just a lot to summarize as to what led me to this point because it started my senior year of high school and that was, uh.., 12 years ago. (HOLY CRAP). Eventually I'll post about it I'm sure. It's nerve-wracking but that's exciting and kind of a roller coaster ride. I will admit, it's hard stepping out of my box and putting myself out there. I'm trying to just figure out where I fit in and what next steps I need to take. Some days I get overwhelmed but I really try not to stress because it's all for the better. I've stressed out for far too long and it has never gotten me anywhere, so I just smile and laugh at everything now, and take life as it is.  I'm pretty much starting my life over from the ground up but I think I'm off to a good start.  I'm expecting 2015 to be the year I will finally get to the point where I am 100% comfortable with everything...I'm hoping.

 I saw this quote on Pinterest and it's oh so very true…

For pretty much the last ten years I was living in the past. I let a handful of cruddy situations and insecurities determine my entire life up until this point. Then my eyes were opened. I saw another quote on Pinterest that rang true as well. 

The truth sure did piss me off, and I was so angry with this particular person for telling me what I essentially knew, but didn't want to hear. After thinking about it though, I had to come to reality realizing I couldn't ignore it forever and let the past run my life. And that's how this whole "New Vanessa" thing started. And it's so weird because since this realization, I've run into people (even complete strangers!) that have said the exact things I've needed to hear at that exact moment. It's been so weird. Maybe I'm just more open to change now and finally listening? That's probably it. lol 

Okay, so I have nothing crafty prepared to post about. So, here's some random photos :) Here's my desk at work…Coffee of course :)

And during my recent trip to TJ Maxx, I found this little gem. 

I love 'coffee table' books. This is just a book of happy things, and motivating quotes on every page. This will be making its way onto my desk.

Well, that's all I've got! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. I will be back next week, hopefully with a finished mini album and…the contents of my Basic Grey warehouse box, that I gifted myself. I can't wait until it comes in the mail!
