The Universe is rewarding me for giving Sunday to myself and my passions, I think. Because since Sunday, good things have been happening:

+ I made a significant improvement health wise from where I was post-procedure.
+ Kicking my NaNoWriMo project in the teeth and getting that sucker DONE.
+ Found a way of making serious headway in my medical bill mess, so I will not longer be The Walking Debt. Well, IF it works out. That’s still up in the air. So cross all things that are capable of safely being crossed.
+ The Jessica Lange cover of “Gods and Monsters” (On American Horror Story: Freak Show) is available on iTunes, and I bought it, and it pleases me greatly. I know that’s a random thing, but hey – gotta appreciate the little stuff.
+ I have a shoot Sunday if all goes as planned.
+ There is a light at the end of the tunnel for something that has been a nightmare for two years now.
+ I feel like I’m making some improvements in my art, and I’m hoping to take some steps forward with that soon.
+ I have adventures to look forward to next year. Plus little get together things with friends the rest of this year.

 

And what may be the best of it all, is that I am learning to redirect negative thoughts as soon as they enter my head. For example: If someone is making my life miserable, and I start to let it get to me, I remind myself that there are billions of other people in this world, and that it is absolutely ridiculous to let one person ruin my day. I take a deep breath and push the thoughts aside, and focus on one of the many good things I have going on. No one is going to take the good going on right now away from me.

Pictures and details and all that wonderful jazz from my adventures in Orlando shall have to wait. This autoimmune mess is tired and lazy. Ha.

But I will throw this out there – with the series of horrible awful things that are going on around this time – Skylar leaving, my dog dying, Eric’s death anniversary, and soon Whitney’s birthday (on top of normal bullshit such as work and whatnot) – I had hoped getting away from it all would help. And, for the most part, it did. But coming home, tired and miserable, knowing I had to dive right back into the day job and start in for my new collaboration – A Thousand Lives Review – plus a trillion other things… it broke my heart. I think I was even more depressed than last time, and I cried when I was leaving Universal. Plus it was a rough trip home – lost my boarding pass during security stuff, almost lost my replacement, hateful people on the plane… blah. And I just did NOT want to come home. Wah wah wah. I know. I sound like a spoiled brat. But I had a break from being Angel Young, miserable office monkey and Sjogrens slave. I needed that break. Coming back to reality was a slap in the face and I haven’t taken it very well at all.

But then, I start to remember just who I am..

AdventureI remember I am this kickass individual that has come so close to greatness, so close to everything I’ve wanted from this life, that I could taste it. I’m a driven gal with an illogical amount of determination. I was being interviewed for my writing before I graduated high school and busting my ass to get somewhere. Why on EARTH would I want to hide away in a theme park every single day, when I have so many more other adventures to go on? (Don’t get me wrong… If you offered me a chance to go to Universal, I would IMMEDIATELY jump on it.)

The point of the matter is, kids, I got some interesting news. Stars aligning; fate staging a great moment in my life. I was down and out, then received just the news I needed to get me in gear. That on top of stumbling onto this wonderful interview Wyman did with me back in 2009, it all sorta reminded me just how incredible my life can be sometimes. The bad can cloud the good.

Anyway, check out that interview as well as A Thousand Lives Reviews, then stay tuned for a proper ‘I’m back’ post.
