Now. Please. Schnozzfest expresses the exact same way I felt when I moved here. It is an excellent piece. I dare say brilliant. I will link it throughout this brief post because I am providing you with numerous opportunities to GO READ IT. And it is somewhat of a coincidence because when I walked into work this morning, I thought about how happy I felt now and how a year ago I felt miserable, alone, unhappy, and practically hopeless. Now I am content, happy, and enjoying the path my life has taken. I feel more empowered by the choices I have made and delighted that I have made some really fantastic friends here who I would not trade for the world. Although I always believed one should make the best of where one is, I do not always take that advice to heart. When I lived in Salt Lake City, I spent a whole year and half miserable about living there. I ended up depressed and spiraling out of control into a world of anxiety and hopelessness. Eventually I sought the help I desperately needed, took control over my happiness, and lived my life in the moment. Again, I found myself doing that here. I complained, sulked, and bitched about what a miserable boring town this was. And then I realized I do have control over my happiness so I got off my self-pitying ass and made positive changes.
So today I smile for me, my life, my friends, my home, my family, and all that I make good around me.
