2022 was a topsy-turvy year. I began it still reeling from the happiness 2021 ended with, when I managed to get my place, which was both a delight and a surprise. Even now, at the end of the year, I think part of me is still excited and in disbelief that I’m here, in my own space, able to afford it. It’s wonderful. It’s delightful. It makes me so happy and glad and grateful. I am just SO happy when I think about this space that I’ve managed to make mine.
But 2022 was topsy-turvy because although it began with happiness, with something wonderful, it sometimes dipped when it came to work or my mental and emotional health (the causes of my many blogging and reading slumps throughout the year). And after those dips, something amazing would once again happen, like getting one of my dream jobs, something that stunned me and even now I have to pinch myself to make sure all this is real, that I’m actually doing it. It was such a wonderful thing to happen. But then things would dip again with health scares and car scares and whatever-is-going-on-in-the-world scares.
