And Feel, Feel, What It's Like to be New

Here is a pumpkin patch.

While I was running tonight, it was getting dark before I finished and I flashed on a time last year where I got a late start in my run because I was looking at houses. Holy crap! It just brought it all back.

Last year at this time, I was still living in my old apartment, both my girls were living at home and I was looking for a house. Weird. It feels like so much longer ago than that and I feel like such a different person...In a good way. I feel like I've done so much internal work on myself and external work on my house, but I have such a long way to go on both projects. I'll go as far as to say it will be never ending. I guess it's damn good thing I'm not afraid of hard work then.

Of course, the best part is how much nicer everything is because of it. I'm sure I'll never get over all of my issues and doubt my house will either. But it's amazing how much better we both are after a year's worth of work

You are doing so great both internally and externally!

That is crazy! I am in the same situation - we were in the "pull your hair out it's so awful" stage of buying a house.

I find it better, always, when moving forward.

Last year this time I was working on my house nonstop and trying to find friends. A whole different life.

I don't know. What else would we be doing with our lives if not making them better? For me, it's kind of a trick to just ... not call it 'work.' (That was a weird thing to realize. But it's true. Wheee.)

I hear ya! This time last year was a totally different life. Funny how it seemed to drag on then... but looking back it was more like a freight train that slowly built up speed. No stopping now!

You've made such HUGE changes.

Glad to hear it. You sound very content.

Sometimes things seem so static, but after a year it becomes apparent that there was plenty going on.
Congrats on your journey, may it go on and on :-)
