I finished my children’s book tonight, a massive undertaking that’s taken most of a year in collaboration with a hospital.
Other than that, I’m going to have artwork in a local magazine next week. I feel like I finally understand my job and have the opportunity to succeed there. I feel like I really have friends at work now too, so it’s nice to be my silly self sometimes. My boyfriend is fantastic and treats me like a princess. I’ve lost 10 pounds. My best friend had a baby this year. One of my best friends is starting at Converse next week. I have a car. I have my own apartment. I make enough money to live off of. My medical problems have been very manageable lately. I have second, third, and fourth families who I can depend on.
I’m so happy today, and every day. <3
