I'm in such a good place right now. I just feel deep down that I'm where I'm supposed to be.
Work is going much better lately. I'm beyond busy, but I'm not behind. I get grants for my company and we were running pretty thin, but over the past couple of weeks, I've gotten some approvals. That takes a huge weight off my shoulders. I also found out Friday that my boss gave me a raise! I didn't ask for one this year because we didn't have as many grants (studies) as I would have liked, which means we weren't making as much money as we could. He surprised me though and I found some extra money in my paycheck on Friday :) It's not a huge raise, but every little bit helps!
Things are going amazingly with my finances. I've got a budget that works and didn't have a problem sticking to it last month. I feel so much better just knowing where every penny goes and I don't feel overwhelmed because I'm not sure if something will get paid or if I'll have the money for Christmas presents. Its' a great feeling!
I'm single again and actually okay with it. Shawn and I tried to make things work, but we just aren't on the same page. It's sort of terrifying to think of starting over with someone new when Shawn and I have so much history and i thought we would end up together. So I'm not thinking about it. I know whatever is supposed to happen, will happen. I'm enjoying the freedom and focusing on becoming the person I know I can be.
I'm also doing really well with my health/weight loss goals. I've lost 11 lbs as of this morning, which is great! I've also been trying to walk the dogs more often and to take them on longer walks when we do get out. I've tried the 30 day shred and while it's hard, it's something I'm going to try to do more frequently.
The dogs are healthy, I'm making more of an effort to see/talk to my good friends, my parents and I have a good relationship...everything is just going so well right now. And I know they can even be better than I imagine if I just keep working towards my dreams.
