I’ve been on my own now for almost four months. It is what I’ve wanted for years but I underestimated how difficult it would be to feel truly feel settled. But today, in its own odd way, could be a turning point.
For one thing, I worked out in a gym this afternoon for the first time since November. I had transferred my membership from my old county to a location near work but hadn’t worked out there till today. It felt good. Sort of. Should feel a little pain tomorrow, but that’s to be expected.
I treated myself to dinner at a neighborhood restaurant this evening. As I was walking there I bumped into a former co-worker; turns out he lives in the condos next door to my apartment. Who knew? And two current co-workers live within walking distance of my new digs.
The meal was awesome. This is my second visit to this restaurant and I plan to try the bar next time. It’s a potential regular hang out for me.
Then I strolled to the grocery to pick up a couple of things. Returned to my apartment and sipped a second glass of wine on my little patio, soaking in the vibe and enjoying the long-awaited warm weather.
Today is really the first day I have truly felt like my life is settling into what I want it to be. Cheers.
