It’s been almost one year since I officially stopped being an employee of my previous radio station. You can read about my departure here! And wow…what a year it has been! I have literally stopped and smelled the roses and it’s been pretty eye opening, in a good way!! When you get up at the crack of dawn for so long, you sort of forget how tired it makes you until you stop getting up that early. ha ha. So for almost a year now, I have consistently been getting eight to nine hours of sleep which in my book is AWESOME and I am gonna enjoy it while it lasts!
I have been doing something I truly love and that is writing. I love to tell stories, I love to be real, share honesty, share the good AND share the bad, but I love to be able to share it all with no filter! I have also loved setting my own schedule and with all of that has come a freedom I have never known. I love being able to take my two daughters to school and pick them up. I have never been able to do both carpools before and I know that won’t always be the case but boy, am I gonna take advantage of it while I can. The look my three year old gives me every day when I pick her up at lunchtime is truly, one of the best moments of my day! Every day, she is SO excited to see me and it just fills my heart. I have especially loved having a little more time to travel and spend time with the people I love. We have taken more trips as a family this past year and I can’t wait to see where we’ll go in 2016! I’m allll about creating memories and living life! I mean did you SEE our Christmas card??!! lol
I am super grateful that so many of you have taken the journey with me from the radio world to this website and have followed along with me. THANK YOU and please tell a friend! ha! 😉 I also appreciate that you have asked over and over WHEN I will be going back to radio! That makes me so happy! The truth is, I don’t know yet. Really. I have had a few conversations with several radio stations but I need to decide what and where would make me the happiest. If I am gonna go back to the radio world, it has to be for the right place. I want it to be the right fit for both me and my family and I want it to be somewhere where I can totally be me!
Speaking of radio, there have been so many changes going on at my old radio station too which people have asked me about. The truth is, I don’t pay attention. NOT because I don’t wish them well, but because I moved on. That’s what you do when you leave a job and/or end a relationship right? And let’s be honest, two of my bestest girlfriends still work there…so I will never have anything negative to say and I all I wish is for them to continue to be happy and successful! Plus, the people behind the scenes who were the cause of alot of the overall grief, were terminated, so it’s like a whole new radio station there really! Unfortunately, people were not very accepting of the new morning show after we left, which I guess I understand but it’s too bad. It wasn’t their fault that I didn’t work there anymore. I even chatted with most of the new show after I left and they are all pretty good people. I have only ever wished them well. I have worked in radio my whole life and radio has always been about change.
Speaking of change. I feel like that’s what my life has been this year. Change. I have had allll sorts of emotions this year…happy, sad, scared, excited but duh, don’t we all have those emotions like every single anyway??!! lol I said almost a year ago that I remain #Faithful. And I am. I know that right here is where I am supposed to be right now and if that’s gonna change, then the man upstairs will point me in the right direction. Until then I am going to sit back and enjoy this crazy ride called life!
