Reviewing the Past

Every day I make it a point to restore at least one of the older posts that I had to delete several years ago.

The post I restored today had to deal with relationships. I really wanted a relationship back then.

It’s amazing to see how much I’ve changed in just a decade.

I couldn’t help but chuckle as I restored that old post. Just this morning I was brainstorming responses to keep the males at bay. I no longer want a relationship; I definitely have no desire to be pursued by the current crop of males that tend to target me. As I wrote earlier, I purchased a ring to discourage them from even trying.

What changed?

I did. I’ve went from just surviving, from trying to keep my expenses as low as they could go in order to get by and spend time with my daughter to actually having a major goal.

Instead of hoarding every penny to take time off from working, I’m now picking up extra shifts at work so I can combine the money with my book royalties to provide seed money for my investment business.

I want to prove that the American Dream isn’t dead, and I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen.

That is a huge mindset shift for me, especially when you notice that just those few short years ago I dreamed of meeting someone who would sweep me off of my feet.

I think I like that change.
