You never know when things may suddenly go awry. Last week, in the middle of my first week at my new position, one thing after another began spiraling out of control with an unemployed roommate. I will spare you the gory details, but in a nutshell, I had to step up and take charge of a messy situation.
Now I’ve lived on my own for about three years, but never in my life have I felt like things were so out of control with a housing situation. Like everyone else, my house is my security so naturally it has been difficult to focus on anything else. One thing I learned throughout all of this? Always trust your instinct.
It’s safe to say everything has turned around. While we are still working out a few kinks, it does give me extreme pleasure to know that I can remain calm and be strong enough to handle life’s little curve balls.
When I look back on 2010, I can see that my maturity has progressed tenfold. They say that you learn so much in every year of your 20s and this couldn’t be further from the truth in my case — I can’t imagine what the next year will hold!
It’s so cliche, but I guess the point of this post is this: when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Or better yet, Lemon Drops.
