Two other things that are freaking awesome right now are the people in my life and, tbh, myself.
The babe in the autumnal colours up above is honestly such a gift and such a joy, and I don't know what I'd do without her. People like her and their presence in my life are just these enourmous sources of light and peace. Together we've practically moved in to our local Espresso House (to the point where we text each other just to ask if the other happens to be there whenever we're in the area), and I'm loving getting closer to her and getting to sap her wisdom and confidence and kindness. Honestly, what a woman.
And then there's me. A better me than I've ever been. A me who can shut down a pushy boy without craving the attention that leaves with him, and a me who looks in the mirror or at the scale and just goes "Yeah, that's my body. Good job body. Solid A-, with a reduction only for the cramps you plague me with once a month."
But if we're going to take a second here to be serious, I've been working so hard on myself for so long, and I'm finally seeing payoff in how I see myself, how people see me and also how people react to me. And I love love love it.
Also, podcasts exist, and I've been obessing over leadership, self-improvement and work lectures recently. That or my wonderful "Life is Good" playlist are constantly playing in my ears. Because life really is good, and there's so much to learn.
