I have so much to say and haven't been able to formulate it into proper sentences or even organize my thoughts.
So much can happen in two years - Friends are lost, friends are gained, new relationships are forged, loved ones pass away and new jobs are found.
I have also found myself, as cliché as that sounds.
I feel more myself and more alive and awake in the past year than I have in my almost 28 years on this earth.
I have an amazing job, where I feel valued and cherished, and that my thoughts and ideas are truly considered when I do speak up.
I have a wonderful boyfriend, who I know will be a part of my life for many years to come. Stemming from that relationship, I have a new group of people I call my family and friends, and I finally understand what true caring friendship is, as I've seen his interactions and have become a part of that social circle.
My boyfriend and I are taking the next step in our relationship, and are moving in together in July. I think it's one of the scariest, most amazing and wonderful experiences I've been a part of in my life. Everything happens at its time, and I'm loving every second of it.
I lost my grandmother in January, after a quick diagnosis and two hospitalizations. In the short time that she was ill, I learned so much more from her, and learned to value my time with the people in my life. I miss her every day, but I know that life moves on in time, as I'm slowly finding peace within my grief for my mother.
I find that with the right therapy and the right medication, I have finally learned how to properly cope with anxiety and depression, and face them head on with a new-found positivity and ability to open up to new and scary things. The past month or so has been an incredible learning experience, and I've found within me a strength and courage I never knew I possessed!
My plan for the summer is to start up my blog again.
I want to write and be creative and get my stories out for all those who wish to read them.
So, check back again in July; I'll be posting regularly once I've moved into my new apartment and have internet access at home again.
