It's been coming for sometime
Today I had a half day. My weeks will boast a few of those now -and anyway, today was one of them. As I was walking back to my car from the chinese restaurant, food in hand, I saw a friend who I used to work with at the library. It was nice, seeing her face in the sunshine and not under fluorescent bulbs - we hugged very near a busy intersection - we didn't care, really. It was warm to see her pretty face. And, here's the (second) best part of this story...
She said I looked good. Or happy. Or both. She couldn't decide which to land on.
And there you have it.
There are different reasons for it; I know it's not *just* job stuff, but let's not kid ourselves. Right? And yes, it's very early yet for both jobs. But I'm free. The moment I quit the library, something was let loose - something supernatural. I don't have to do things that make me unhappy. I don't have to make my decisions based on other people. I get to decide. I don't have to feel guilty.
I haven't let myself be. Just be. You know?
Other big reasons I'm happy? Well, I have bikes. And buds to ride with. And badminton. And summer.
And wine. Yes. I have these things.
