If I waited for perfection… I would never write a word.
Day 70 (June 29): Changed things up a bit with a cute, shaggy new haircut for summer.
Day 71 (June 30): Decided that part of investing in me means that I’m going to be scared a lot of the time. Future Me will also be so much happier.
Day 72 (July 1): Very first freelance/collaboration night for my big freelance project. It. WAS. AMAZING. We worked on the project until the English language stopped making sense.
Day 73 (July 2): Its July already? WOW. Looking forward. For the first time in a long time, I feel hopeful about the future. I’m letting myself be hopeful.
Day 74 (July 3): Embracing where I’m at now. Which means dropping all the “I should be doing/having…” talk that I’ve given myself all my life. I’m practicing patience.
Day 75 (July 4): Baked chocolate bacon cupcakes and went to a BBQ with new people. The holidays hit me hard this year, so just attending was difficult. Very glad I did – met wonderful new people, had a wonderful time, and took this picture.
Also? Right after this picture was taken, the girl next door let me HOLD HER CHICKEN. That is not a euphemism. Her chicken is named Copper and she made happy clucks as I petted her feathers.
Day 76 (July 5): Send friend requests to new people I met.
Day 77 (July 6): Continue to put my self-care first. Life is so much better because of it and I’m able to get more done as a result.
Day 78 (July 7): Started a new short story. Maybe a longer work, but I’m having fun with it. Most importantly, I’m writing!
Day 79 (July 8): Sang in the car driving home, like a fool who didn’t care. I didn’t, and I don’t. It was fun.
