This may be the longest break I have ever taken from writing on this blog, and that's totally my bad. I could give you the usual run-around about checking out of my life, but you're probably here reading this to hear how I'm doing now. So here goes.
Lately I've been looking in the mirror and feeling really different about what I see. I feel like a different woman inside than I did a year ago. I feel lighter, and taller, stronger, brighter and happier, and I feel like I look different, too.
I feel like for the first time maybe, I took a huge risk and it was totally the right thing to do. I feel successful, and lucky, and really free. I think that's the word that expresses it the best: free. Like anything is possible, and I might even get what I go after. It's crazy, really.... I feel incredibly blessed.
And that's led to a little more confidence about making other decisions. I'm at a place in my life that I honestly never thought I'd get to, but I'm very happy being here. And I'm starting to see what's important to me, and what's not- and what I'm worth. It's totally different than I thought it would be. It's more comfortable than I imagined it could be. And I don't feel like a bundle of raw nerves anymore. I feel free to try things and free to fail, and free to relax and be myself. I think it's because I'm being seen for the first time. It's amazing to be appreciated for my presence. I'm so thankful for that experience.
I know all that if vague, but it's the truth. And I'll try nail it down a little better next time. Until then, I hope you're feeling as free as I am.
