My Thursday posts have always been about myself and my mental health, and I quite liked the little things that I came up with. Whether I inspired someone or not, at least I got something out of it for myself.
Things have been rather hectic lately – for the last two months anyway. My husband and I have started working on our marriage and the results are nothing short of a miracle. We are getting closer than ever and it is taking a while to forgive past transgressions, but they are being forgiven and we are moving together into a new world.
That includes a new venture – my husband is going to be working for himself once more. And while he is nervous about this, I actually feel confident because I know he has the know how and ability to make this work. Hopefully between the two of us we will make this business a success.
I have really enjoyed the Teacher Aide work I have done this year, I have some close relationships with some of the kids, which I have to keep at arms length, even though I desperately want to wrap them up in my arms and hug them. Most of them are so bruised by life, and I know I can’t make it better for them, but at least I can be there for them.
I have managed to write three novellas this year, and plot out the first story in a trilogy, so I am excited about next year. Even have myself a few new critiquing partners, and looking forward to working with them. A couple of them are published, so I am hoping that we can really pull things together.
Overall, it has been an up and down year for me, but going into the worst part of the year for me, I actually feel – even – that is the only way I can describe it. Even. Not up, not down, but on an even keel. Long may it continue.
