Life updates

“You can't know who might cross your path or who will take your breath away. You can't know what friends might actually become sisters because they stayed by your side. You can't know when there'll be an unexpected detour that'll take you to the place where you were always meant to be.” ~Holly C. Corbett

I saw this quote today that The Single Woman posted on facebook...and like most quotes when you are going through something in your life...they just sort of stand out.

The part that stands out the most for me right now is this, " can't know when there'll be an unexpected detour that'll take you to the place where you were always meant to be."

That line couldn't be more perfect for exactly what I've been going through the last few weeks. 

Remember when I wrote this post?

The 28 things I want to do in my 28th birthday year...which by the way is coming up on August 26th...just so you know, wink wink.

Pay attention to #4...Get dream job.

In my perfect 'Lyndse world' dream job would mean one thing for me...get paid for doing something I absolutely love and that I already do anyway.
Well...I knew I couldn't get paid for pinning things on I had to find something else

If you have been a regular follower of mine you know where my passion lies. You can check it out here and fact you may want to check those out if you want to know exactly what my dream job consists of.

Also...see that little "proud supporter of" icon on the right side of the blog...under my button. That is a big giveaway for where I will be working. you may now have guessed. After 4 years of college, job after job, I have FINALLY landed my dream job.
The road to getting there was not easy. 
But oh, so worth it.
Last week alone I had interview after interview for a position with the same organization but in my hometown location.
I didn't get any of those.
They asked me if I would be willing to re-locate...kind of a spur of the moment, "yes" some much needed prayers...and here we are.

Dream job here I come...except in order to do said dream job...I will be moving.
Not out of Oklahoma...just a little further down south.
So...southwestern I come.

God knows what he is doing, and I am so thankful that I kept on trying and trying even after I didn't get what I thought it was that I wanted.

So, you now see why I've been so MIA lately. For good reason. 
I start my new job the day after I turn 28.

Now...I need to really get to working on goal # 2 and 3.
