A lot of changes are happening in my life these days.....and I would be lying if I claimed to not be nervous about them. However, I stopped this morning and thought about how different my life was a year ago at this time......trapped in a situation I never thought I would escape.....trying to fool everyone (including myself) that I was happy and everything was fine......and now, here I as a bird, living in a place I never thought I would be content with (it turns out sometimes coming home is just the ticket), being surrounded by people that truly make me happy and loving my life as I never have before. Healing is a times it can be incredibly gut wrenching and painful and even when you think you have completely healed new wounds are ripped open......but these last 7 months have taught me that the process is entirely worth the pain and risks......and I'm jumping feet first into the next chapter of my life.

"May your coming year be filled with magic & dreams & good maddness. I hope you read some fine books & kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful & don't forget to make some art (write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can) & somewhere in the next year I hope you surprise yourself."

Is it just me or is this year flying by shockingly fast? I wrote this quote down at the beginning of the year to remind myself to make EVERY single day amazing and although life has its ups and downs and has been absolutely insane lately I'm proud to say that I have been living as only I can. More laughter and books and art.......and kissing someone who thinks I'm more than sweet Doodle bug. Now that we are in the middle of the 3 out of 12 chapters this year let's remember to MAKE life beautiful :)
