Eight is my favorite number. It has always been my favorite number. When I first started dating, my fiance, I told him this fact. He changed all his jerseys, to always have the number eight, just to make me happy. He included the number eight on his basketball and football jerseys. I graduated high school in 2008 with a 3.98 GPA unweighted. Scholarships in hand, the worldview in tow. Ten years later and it is now 2018.
My favorite number is eight.
I have a strong sense of hope that everything I have been working for will finally come together. I have been ambitiously working on a thousand different things as I transition from this part of my life. On one hand I have a heavy heart but on the other – I eagerly look forward to the next chapter of my life that I have patiently anticipated in my education and career.
I’ve been frequenting positive affirmations on a regular basis and it has been relatively helpful in easing me into a more balanced state of mind. Anytime I think of work, my anxiety level spikes up and I become overwhelmed with the amount of deadlines and bills coming my way. It is a clear signal that the tides must change.
My heart has been full since the negotiation. I can not remember the last time I felt complete and utter joy – the way I do now. It has been a long time coming. I am glad to finally have a shoulder to rest on and support me. I did not fully realize the burden of feeling unsupported the past nine years… but I finally get it. I finally understand what it is like to have someone look at you and say, “I will help you – I will figure it out. We will figure it out.” It has been a long time since I’ve heard those words. In actuality – I can not remember the last time I heard those words.
