I have to say, from the moment I knew I was coming home, I had visualized my condo. I visualized the color on the wall and the art and how I would hang everything. I visualized being surrounded by my books and the things that matter to me.
Not having these things while starting a new job and simply being in my place that lacked my stuff actually wasn't that easy. Life felt a bit incomplete.
Obviously my stuff arrived in October and then it was a matter of waiting until one painting was reframed and repaired. Funnily enough, that painting is still at Michael's. When we put the art wall together last night we had a placeholder for the painting, but decided to use a different piece of art and it looks AMAZING.
It's good to be home, I suppose.
Opens up the door for other fun stuff, if you know what I mean.
The only thing that is still lacking is the art in the bedroom and I will probably do some black and whites in there, plus I want to do a nude photoshoot and I have some ideas on how to incorporate some specific shots I want for my wall art in the bedroom.
Things are pretty much wonderful now.
I have had a few bad days lately. Angry days. The "Last year at this time" stuff.....
But other than that?
I have amazing friends, who love me.
I have two dogs, who are awesome.
I have a home that makes me happy every time I look around in it.
I am sleeping better. Halleluja. I am sleeping better.
I adore my job. Interestingly, I am being headhunted pretty violently and one job was so amazing, but in the wrong place, but I couldn't care less really. I am so very happy at my firm. I already got promoted once. The job title still lacks my old one, but that comes in the new year. I have zero complaints. I am highly respected and valued, I am truly part of the senior exec group like I have been in previous roles in the UK and in the US and I love it. I haven't even been there 3 months (almost), but it feels like a lot longer. It's great.
I am also meeting a lot of interesting people and having a to of fun with that.
I am self-improving all over the place. I am challenging myself and pushing myself.
It feels good.
I feel good.
