I feel like I’m bursting at the seams. This week, I got hired to write another piece for a magazine. On Thursday, I took my second guitar lesson and was able to play through “Keep It To Yourself” by Kacey Musgraves while my instructor sang. Yesterday, I met with a new client for my legal work. I just got invited to another lunch by friends who want to hear about my Kilimanjaro trip. Tonight, I’m meeting my Hood to Coast team for a reunion dinner. I get to run the Austin Marathon tomorrow. And right now, I’m getting to enjoy these at my office:
I know Valentine’s Day isn’t the easiest of days for everyone. Last year, I got through it by focusing on my love for my TriDot training program, which I’m still crazy about. This year, I feel like I traded my old life in for a new one. While I still remember what the old looked and felt like, I don’t ache for it the way I once did. I am right where I’m supposed to be, doing exactly what I’m supposed to be doing. That’s not to say that I wouldn’t love a book contract, enough money for daily massages and appointments with my hairdresser, and a personal jet to fly me to and from Iowa on a moment’s notice, but I’m happy. More than that, I’m joyful and peaceful and just…full.
It feels like I’ve gone from the most challenging year of my life to the sweetest. It didn’t happen overnight, but it’s happened. I’m so grateful.
