good things / updates
+ The beach
+ Air conditioning and drinking an entire box of La Croix in one day (aka I hate Tennessee summers so, so much)
+ Oh, yeah, I quit my job, got a new job, and am so much happier than I ever thought I could be. That's a big one.
+ On that same subject, I've always been the kind of person who tells others (and who wants to believe) that if something in your life isn't working for you, you have the power to change it. I've always told this to people in unhappy relationships/jobs/situations, but this is the first time I have really felt myself follow my own advice so eagerly and intensely. I guess I can keep telling people that now.
+ Running! I am getting so much better at it, and it's such a soothing thing for me. I am constantly impressed by the power of my own body, and it's a time for me to completely relax my brain and focus on getting myself to move, move, move.
+ Just everything Hollow Valley. I cried when I opened the package with my first printings in it. Holding those cards in my hands, using them for a reading, knowing the years of work that went into that moment, it was so powerful. Here I am, almost to the end, with this thing I created, and I am so thrilled to share it with all of you.
+ Peaches (there's nothing better, except MAYBE rainier cherries)
+ Rainier cherries
+ Sudden summer downpours
+ That feeling when you hear a song for the first time and you know it's going to be something you play over and over again for months and learn every word and it'll be tied to all of the memories you make during this part of your life.
+ The endless support I've felt from all of the people in my life lately. I am in awe, blown away, and so completely touched.
