"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost"
June came and went in a flash. It was my birthday on the 6th, so I have even more books, more totes, and spoiled myself with cupcakes and fine dining. I celebrate my birthday all month long, and the first of July brings the end of my celebrating. Boo.
My kind, sweet sister is a blessing, and she gave me one of the best presents, ever:
Yep. Rainbow roses. I’ve wanted a collection ever since I saw them, and I even added it to my bucket list. She was a bit stunned at my reaction. A month later, they are currently drying, and I have a project in mind, so that I can enjoy them forever.
The new job is going well. I finally have some confidence and my management seems very happy with my performance. One of my supervisors told me that I can never leave the company, and that I had to work with them forever. There are three things that I use as benchmarks in my life, and doing well at my job is one of them. I’m finally on stable ground again. I wake up every day without the fear and stress of constant failure. I needed this, and getting out of a job I loathed is making a positive impact on my everyday life.
The gym is going well. While I was in New York, I dropped a size in pants, and I have kept it off. I wore a shirt to work on Friday that had been a bit snug in the past, and it looked good on me. Someone took the time to tell me that they have noticed a drop in my weight.
Finally, things are smoother. I am reading more, I talk to people online, I loved BEA, I gained more control over my finances, and I am enjoying the gym. I hope this trend continues for the rest of the year. I am ready for my brighter days now.
