I received my first paycheck after 4 years. It was...liberating. I feel as though I'm returning to my old, old self. Not the sad and tired old self but the invigorated and happy old self. And it's even better now because I have my son, I'm in Colorado and my husband is happy.
Today, the sky is vibrant blue and little brown birds are building nests all around our backyard.
We are all at peace.
