I haven’t quite been myself lately; to be honest I have been pretty depressed about moving and all the shifts that have taken place in the past few weeks. For the past three weeks it has seemed that nothing has gone right. I am so excited for all the potential and possibility that comes with moving yet again, but I’m still exhausted from the last move 11 months ago. I am dreading looking for a new job, finding a new house, driving across the country and leaving my glorious little Greenwood routine. I have been to the gym maybe twice in the past 2 or 3 weeks, I’ve lost track. Every day has been grey and I have been living in an endless cycle of sleeping and eating to avoid doing anything other than sleeping and eating.
But today feels different. I’ve been trying to come out of my slump by surrounding myself some of the people who inspire me the most. Amy Poehler is one of those people and today I am going to channel my inner-Leslie Knope and eat some waffles, be my ridiculous self and do some things that will blow my mind when I look back on the summer of 2015.
I try to gauge life by asking myself, “Am I better off?”
I think comparatively I can say a big “YES” to that question right now. I’m better off in every possible way right now than I was at this time last year and I know right now I am better off than I was at this time yesterday.
