It’s been a weird day, but I made it through and am feeling better for the most part.
I’ve been thinking a lot about how different life is compared to last year. In some ways, it’s worse: Mom is gone, I had to move out of my childhood home and neighborhood, and I’ve struggled with adjusting to my new normal. But this year has also brought a lot of joy, weirdly: I celebrated the ten year anniversary of my conversion, I fell in love, and I’m building a life that I once thought was out of reach, plus there’s so much more to come and a lot of celebrations for friends. I am hopeful for this year to come.
