One of the problems – many problems – with social media is that people can tend to highlight only the good and never the bad, leading to the incorrect assumption that everyone else is leading lives of perfect glamour, while lowly you is just trying to keep your head above water. I hope that I do not give this impression overly much on this blog.
That said, some moments in life really are that good.
These last few weeks have been a bit tough. I have been in job search mode, which is a process that manages to be incredibly time consuming, tedious, and nerve-racking all at once. Between running around trying to “network” and apply for jobs and take care of my day-to-day, I have been stretched at the seams. I saw the numbers on the scale go up due to mindless stress munching, and lord knows that my bathroom has not been thoroughly cleaned in a month. Ew.
But as of this week things are finally turning around. The weather has switched from endless chilly spring to 80 degrees with sunshine. I have a few inquires from employers regarding job applications that I sent out ages ago, I am remembering to eat my vegetables – not just ice cream – and today is the day that I finally deep-clean my bathroom.
And then last night I stayed out too late tango dancing, I woke up early to have a lovely morning walk in the warm spring air to Pilates, and stopped by a favorite restaurant of Mark’s and mine on the way back to get a selection of miniature pastries and iced coffee, with which I was able to surprise and delight my sweet and handsome boyfriend who awaited me at home. These last few hours I know that life couldn’t possibly get better and felt like the luckiest woman alive.
