Cutting out all that negativity (by moving out of GR and cutting toxic people/situations out of my life) and replacing it with positivity has been really good for me. I've been sleeping better, having far fewer headaches. Some nagging feelings of insecurity about my body and weight but nothing too major. I have a great job that I love that thinks I'm awesome; I have wonderful friends (that means you, dudes) whom I love; I have a sweet, funny, kind boyfriend; I live in a bitchin' city where it's the end of January and there's still moss and grass and green planlife and I'm comfortable walking around outdoors in just a hoodie and sneakers; I'm inching closer and closer to getting out of debt (a big deal to me--by mid-March I'll have cleared up over $1700 of old credit card bills, which makes living broke forever super worth it).

I'm trying to send that positivity back into the world a bit. Spending time with people who are important to me, as much as I can; treating the office to bagels; planning ~secret treatz~ for some rad people in my life. But most importantly, making a conscious effort to recognize that life is good, that I am "blessed", and that I have the power to expunge bad forces from my life. Which sounds like a bunch of new-age garbage, but seriously. It's something that I struggle with when I get in the grips of a "rough patch" and lose sight of when I'm all full of depression and anxiety, as you guys have seen. But if I keep myself surrounded with reminders of how fuckin rad life is, how amazing the people in my life are, etc., I think that really helps. It has been, lately.

So thank you guys ♥

I haven't seen it, but that sounds cool :) I'll give you a call when I'm finishing up with my other plans (it involves my friends and their dog and a dog park, so I'm really vague on the timeframe) and we'll meet up. I don't think I have your number yet, whaaaat is it?
