Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

Today, I was looking back through my old facebook posts and it is so weird to think about my life prior to about 5 months ago. I guess I would have placed myself as a wanderer. I was just kind of making decisions based on the people in my life at that time, not really what I wanted. I guess I knew that I wanted to leave South Dakota and I could have gone anywhere, but I came to Cedar Falls because there is where all of my friends were. It was the obvious decision (and clearly from meeting Nathan, its the best decision I ever made).  At that time I didnt know what I was going to do, I knew I would work at Hy-Vee because thats what I always did. I knew I was going to go to school, but didnt know what for or really even why.  I just made decisions based on what I was supposed to do, or what everyone else was doing. I was on a pursuit of happiness and really not having much luck.

I decided in May of 2010 that I was going to take control of my life. I quit my job without having another job. Something I would never do, ever again by the way! I decided I was going to go back to school, into a field that I really didn't know much about, but seemed kind of cool. Another thing I don't do, make decisions lightly. I was in a relationship that seemed to be going ok. We were happyish. I knew it wasn't forever, and that was fine. Just kind of another stop on my pursuit of happiness.

I started CBE in May and met tons of people. I met people around my age and started having people to hang out with, talk with, share stories with. It was great. Once again breaks were great, going out was even better, and the talk between cubicles was priceless. I finally felt that I maybe wasnt on the pursuit of happiness anymore, but more so riding the happiness train.  This is also around the time that I met Nathan. 

Since I've been with Nathan I have defiantly been on the happiness train. I am riding it, and don't plan to ever get off. This has been the greatest adventure on my pursuit of happiness. The happiness that I have found, and love and enjoyed. I know people may judge us and say that we are just in the honeymoon stage of our relationship at this point, but this....this is our life. Happiness is our togetherness. I am so happy that I have found my pursuit of happiness and that I and living LIFE and enjoying my liberties with my best friend! 

So, I'm hanging out and enjoying the ride, and I hope everyone else finds their happiness as well!!
