Day 20 – Be Thankful

August 22, 2011

We found a place.

After being rejected for a few places, we had two offers for a new apartment today and we will be moving in a few days.

Goodbye kitty litter, hello bed.

It’s the first thing I’m going to buy: a bed. I haven’t had a woman-sized bed in years.

And I’m glad. I’m thankful. I’m thankful. There’s a lot more to write, about my day and what happened…

I gave back the car i’d been using and i spoke with my dear childhood friend, who has had a hard time and who is finally moving her life forward for the better.

I had some clear moments where my brain wasn’t foggy and it seemed possible to just let go of all these past pains and hurts and just let them be what they were. It seemed actually possible, attainable, this good life stuff.

I’m thankful. To have a computer to type on and internet access at night. I’m thankful. To have a place to lay my head. I’m thankful. To be going to work in the morning. I’m thankful. To feel inspired at this moment. I’m thankful. For all of the good food i’ve eaten in the past week. I’m thankful for my loving family and true friends. I’m thankful for all of the fantastic experiences i’ve had in these few decades. I’m thankful for all of the new things i’m learning…. The other side of happy doesn’t seem so far away.

Ameen.
