It is unbelievable what a difference a year can make. Out of curiosity one day, I decided to go back and read my posts from a year ago. I remember that April was a very busy month last year and when I looked back, I realized that I was very unhappy. I looked back a little farther and realized just how unhappy I was. It's amazing. I had myself convinced that I was happy and I liked my job, I was successful, etc.
But I really wasn't. I know that my job now can be a little stressful in its own way. I know that right now is a particularly stressful time, but I also know that I am happy. I am able to enjoy my time because I have more of it. I am able to spend time with my family and friends and capture those moments and place them here to save them. I stand straighter and I smile more.
There is something big approaching for me, (but I can't post about it yet) and I am excited. I no longer have to remind myself of all of the good things in my life because they make themselves known and I don't have to search for them.
It's unbelievable what a difference a year can make.
