3 months since my last post. 3 months ago I was in the midst of a big change. Taking a huge leap of faith and hoping it would result in my being much happier.
Here I am, a little over a week until Christmas, and I am flabbergasted by the changes I see in myself. It amuses me no end that this move wasn’t on my radar until the end of August, and when presented with it, I JUMPED at the chance. I’m so glad I did.
I am actually looking forward to Christmas this year. And it’s because I’m not lonely, or bored, or sick of my own company. Every day I am surrounded by the laughter of my youngest nephews. The relationship between my youngest sister and I has improved by leaps and bounds. And I am so grateful for it.
Now that I’m feeling a bit more settled, I hope to get back to regular blogging. My sister and her boyfriend love to eat good food, so I’ve been having a lot of fun cooking. Which means that I’ll be posting recipes again. I’ve been playing the piano more often, so maybe I’ll pull my flute out of the closet too. I’ve been exercising, and as a “Christmas Bonus”, my sister got me a membership to Planet Fitness. I even slogged through a snowstorm last night to go to the gym. Who is this person?!
I have learned a lot about myself this past year. I am stronger than I think. I am braver than I think. And it’s ok to ask for help, because people are willing to help me. Oh, and I’ve learned that I need to stay on my meds. As awful as 2017 started for me, it’s definitely ending on an upswing. And I’m really looking forward to 2018.
