What if I told you that I’m finally leaving my job in the fitness industry that I felt completely trapt in for a new job in an advertising firm with a really high profile client on the same day I also signed a new apartment where I’ll be living on my own for the first time in Chicago. This is all signed, sealed and delivered before a 16 day Italian vacation with my boyfriend who has been the single best influence in my life since September and i’ve reached emotional places with him that I’ve never dared gone before. I’ve felt like I’ve been a lightning rod for good fortune and happiness and everything is just falling in its place so perfectly. I’m in awe how everything I could hope to manifest is happening for me all at the same time.
I can’t ever remember feeling this happy. I’m doing okay- more than okay even! I really turned this life of mine around. 30 is my fucking year. I was so so lost in my 20s and I feel in control of my life and I’m happy to live this little life of mine, this tiny speckle in the cosmos.
Thriving? Couldn’t be me.
