Having a place to call home that you love is a feeling I can't explain. To know I can always go home to my place of safety and happiness, comfort and joy, brings a sense of relief and security. A freedom from the world, where I can do as I please, dance at all hours and be myself completely.
Since I've been living here the relationship between my mother and I has improved drastically. It's so strange reading over my old posts of the things she used to do, it seems from another world. Granted, we still argue occasionally but nothing out of the ordinary. She is having more medical issues though with her lungs which we are addressing now and in the coming months. It may be bad news but I've grieved over it and am ready to help her fight whatever comes her way.
My health has thankfully been well, and the recent regular workouts has lifted all my winter blahs. I've learned that for me to be sane and happy physical activity has to be a part of my daily routine. When I'm active I'm happy and hopeful and ready to take on the world. As soon as I slip on my workouts I feel it emotionally first. I start to get depressed and want to binge on unhealthy foods that forces the spiral downward. I've known this about myself generally but having final confirmation that exercise is a cure all to my anxiety and stress is a big wake up. I'm finally feeling ready to be social again. I have been seeing some friends occasionally, not as much as I'd like.
My animals are all doing well, the family consists of Riley the dog, Gizmo the bunny, Kiwi the parrotlet, Mika the budgie, peanut the hamster and cosmo the fishie. Everyone is cozy and happy.
School is in my future this year, I'm really looking forward to going to UofT. It's about time I went back to school. I've had setbacks with finances and family issues, but those never go away. So now it's time to focus on that. I'm still not sure which career path I will choose but I'm sure it will open doors either way. I'll get new ideas and meet new people, and hopefully learn a whole lot. ( =
I've spent some time looking over my livejournal and had a lot of laughs through it. We all change so much more than we realize. Don't get me wrong I still love to party and have fun, but there is so much more to life now that I was scarcely aware of. The friends that I've kept through it all mean the world to me. Thanks for stickin around ( =
What an adventure my twenties were. Gonna be turning 30 this year and I'm looking forward to it. The experience and struggles have taught me so much more than I could have imagined.
All in all life has been good to me life is good, and the future is just around the corner (=
