Today my car finally bit the dust. It is dead and will not be coming back. I am fine with this.
What I am not fine with is the fact that my car decided to break our relationship while on the way to a work meeting. I haven't met with my co-workers in months and today I ended up being 25 minutes late for an hour long meeting. What a way to show that I am committed! Involved! Ready for more responsibility!
The next few weeks without a car will be challenging but for the most part I feel like my mental health is a lot more stable now than it was over the summer. Back then I couldn't handle much change and I was always feeling overwhelmed. Now I seem to take each new issue with ease and although I may struggle a bit, Im doing really good.
Im also really feeling like Im ready to get back into working. I have been slowly working through the testing and layers for the government job that I mentioned months ago, but I have no idea when or if that will pan out. Instead Im looking at my options right now and feeling out what my next move will be.
The only thing I know is that I wont be jumping head first into something tomorrow. Im rebuilding my life and I need to be careful that I have a strong foundation.
So good riddance car! You didn't fit very well into my new life anyway.
