After a year of transition, I am ready to settle down and enjoy the fruits of my labor. Years of working on writing are finally paying off with opportunities that stripping never offered. Which is an amazing feeling in itself, but still scary and new as well. Also, I find myself taking risks in my personal life more. It pays off in my career to take risks. Therefore, I am learning that it also pays off in my personal life.
This month marks the beginning of something large in my life. A change I did not think I would ever encounter in my lifetime. I am now a spoiled girlfriend with just one relationship/arrangement. A relationship which includes feelings, honesty, and loyalty. This relationship grew past sugar and into what it is now in a very short period of time. However, we communicate and are open about our needs so that we each feel like our relationship is a working partnership. It is nice to feel something in a relationship and actually get to feel it and not have to just brush it off.
Now I understand why corporations downsize. Morale of those elite left behind is shockingly amazing.
