Birthday and other Big Things :)

THIS IS THE 100th POST! Holy cow!!

Hi Everyone,

It's been a little while but things with Me have been really great.  Life has been busy!!  I have been in the phase of "things settling down" for the past 8 weeks or so.  The last 17 months have been CRAZY.  Obviously my world was turned upside down with the diagnosis in November of 2012.  Then the next many months I was trying to balance my health, family and career.  Then Sean and I decided to get a divorce. Then I began my life as a single parent which included a move.  Nevertheless, I've been busy!  But, I can humbly say I am more blessed than I desrve and I am happy.

The past 8 weeks or so have been a little difficult.  I was on a high in December after finding out I am officially cancer free and the newness of living alone again (when I don't have the kids) "settled"down a bit too.....another new phase began, I felt a bit lonely.  Don't get me wrong, I am not actually lonely.  I stay busy with Ava and Liam (when they are with me), work, I exercise a lot and I try to see friends as often as I can.  I think it has just been the reality of this new life settling in.  One great lesson cancer taught me is how to quickly become comfortable with things I can not control.  I still feel normal emotions...... I can just process through them much faster than I ever had in the past.  I'm enjoying my life now that it has slowed to a "normal" pace.

I started the 100happyday challange. You can follow my 100 days on Instagram if you'd like.  My username is Jenesak and #Jwhappydance should bring up all of the photos so far.  It is such a good way to find at least one thing a day to be happy about.   I have no trouble at all doing this and often find it difficult to just choose one a day.

Also, Monday was my 33rd birthday:-) I had an amazing day and feel so grateful for all of the birthday celebrations and birthday wishes.

Lastly, I am beyond excited and feel extremely blessed to announce that after over 9 years with Merck I have accepted a position with another company. I am no longer going to be in the pharmaceutical sales field and will be transitioning over to medical device wtih an incredible company.  I am so thankful for this opportunity and can not wait to begin this new journey.
