the best phase

I’ve taken an unintentional hiatus from writing the last few weeks. I have no good excuses, other than I was out of town for a couple days and also have been dealing with pretty bad headaches. When I get those I basically only feel like gouging my eyes out, so writing isn’t an option. I feel like I’m on the upswing again so I can start to get back to my normal self.

It’s also just been a weird couple of weeks. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and soul searching, which never really turns out to be a good thing. A lot has happened that’s got me thinking about my life and how I want it to be. Sigh.

Anyway, continuing on with my 40 Deep Questions…

6. What was the best phase of your life?

This is a really tough one for me. In many ways, I feel like I’m in the best phase of my life now. I love my job, I’m finally done with school, I’m taking steps to work towards the future I want. On the flip side of that, there are many things I’m struggling with right now. Probably one of the times I remember being the happiest was when I was finishing up grad school (the first time) and then the year I lived at home. I really enjoyed my job, even though it made me 100% I needed to return to grad school to pursue School Counseling licensure, I loved being able to see family every day, see my niece grow up, be there when my nephew was born, and build so many memories during that time. It wasn’t all good times though. There was sadness, anxiety, hurt, worry, fear, so many things. So it’s really hard to identify one specific “best phase” of my life, because there have been so many highlights, but each highlight also has some shadows. Maybe that means the best is yet to come?
