Relief

I have enough energy to go to the gym after a long day and actually enjoy it.

I have managed to stay up late, not pass out the second I get home, and even get to see a bit of nightime TV talk shows before I hit the sack.

I have energy.

I am happy.

I feel excited and content.

All these things for the first time in three years.

THREE YEARS.

No exageration.

Did I mention I quit my job?

Yeah, that might have helped.

More on that later, after I put in my ridiculously over-booked two weeks and then a week vacation and then start my new job.

My new job.

Where the people seem really nice.

And they like me.

They really like me.

They like me so much that they worked hard to get me.

The pay is not great, only a dollar more an hour than I make now, but you know what? I haven't felt this good in years. I feel free. And safe. And not like doom is lurking around every corner. I can now sleep knowing that the company cell will not wake me up at 11pm, or 5am. Plus I get to work only 40 hours a week. You hear that? ONLY 40. They will not let me work more.

I am so relieved. And tired. But happy.

I'm not looking forward to the next two weeks but I am looking forward to starting a new chapter in my life.

It is about damn time.

Thank you for the good vibes. I believe I can actually feel them. :)
