Thank the Goddess

The joy hit me today. I am so happy to have finally made my move! I have felt terribly trapped and stagnant in Flagstaff for years......and today, when I was riding the bus home from orientation, the sun pouring in and the commuters intently reading, I was overwhelmed with gratitude. I am glad that I have lived to see this day. And I have a feeling some more incredible times are headed my way. So much to live for. And not so long after I had felt hopeless enough to jump off a tall building. I'm glad I didn't. It is because I remember other days like today that I don't jump off tall buildings when I'm blue. I know that the sadness and frustration will pass, and the sun will shine on my soul again.
