I have an amazing life. Complex, crazy, busy, stressful, and yet wonderful, filled with love and opportunity, fun and challenge, friends and family. I am a writer, introverted, anti-social, quiet and more at home in nature than a city. But I have found something incredible here. I have found acceptance and love, growth and exploration, and a life more full than I ever expected to have. My dream house has a furnished attic with pillows and a big circular window, a papasan and some bean bags. Used to be, I’d imagine myself spending most of my time up there, writing in seclusion and quiet. I still want that attic office, but now it’s for my private writing time each day, when I take some time to myself amidst a life full of so much else. I am incredibly thankful for everything and everyone that has made my life what it is today.
