This week has been restorative, awesome, and balanced. A couple impromptu wine nights with friends, continued healing from surgery, a paced adjustment to my new gig, a happenstance meeting with a former client (and friend!), and my first guitar lesson. I’m digging it.
I know every minute is fleeting, but for the first time in a while, I feel like I’m handling things gracefully. I’m balancing work and play, anxiety and relaxation, relationship and alone time.
I’m also making some strides toward getting closer with my sister – I’m looking forward to spending some more time with her for her birthday in August, and getting to know her on a more personal level now that we’re both adults. How weird to have a sister of actual drinking age these days! I don’t know if I’m excited or depressed by that fact.
In terms of travel, I’ve taken a mini break but I’ll be right back in action starting 7/19, to go visit my mom’s hometown with the family. My uncle passed away recently and she wanted to return to her roots – I’m glad we’ll all be together to support her that weekend.
More to come as the winds of change keep shifting… a continuing evolution, as always.
Thanks to all my new readers, by the way. Leave a comment to say hi. I can’t believe how much traffic this little thing is getting these days – I’m humbled and startled any of you care enough to keep up with me, but thanks for tuning in.
