Back in the Game

Hi there, remember me? 

If I'm lucky, you've been wondering where I've been. So let's rewind the tapes, shall we?

Near the end of 2013, I was in a super funk (remember this...yikes). I missed my home in the midwest. I hated my apartment in LA, and overall I just felt very stuck. I actually wrote a lengthy post at the beginning of the new year about committing myself to not feeling trapped by my own choices. I never posted it because instead of posting about my resolution, I just decided to fucking resolve it--how about that? 

So, now I'm coming to you LIVE from a new apartment, that I'm obsessed with. It's more expensive, so you might catch me on extreme couponing soon, as I try to scale back on my other expenses, but I feel so much lighter and happier. 

As much as I've been focusing on not feeling trapped, I'm also trying to take time to bask in my accomplishments. I have a tendency to worry worry worry about one thing, then once I solve that problem instead of patting myself on the back, I'll just move on to another problem and worry worry worry about that. So, I'd just like to say, to you and to the world wide web in general, I'm like pretty fucking proud of myself of moving into a new apartment all by myself. 

Whew, that feels good. 

With that, I present to you my new years mantra...the one I was meant to post about 2 months ago. 

And on that note, I want to challenge you. Since it's February, and you might have already given up on your resolution to drink more water or to go to the gym every day or whatever, I challenge you to think of a couple things you've done really well in 2015 and just take one second to revel in your own achievements. Let me know how that feels!
