A friend of mine found me distraught, comforted me with wisdom. “Let the pieces of the puzzle fit to themselves, don’t force them to fit.”
Step One: secure the apartment in this building that I can actually afford that only allows CATS for pets. (I love those people). I am going to need help with that.
Step two: get a job at Publix, which is practically across the street. (That helps with my agoraphobia. I’ll feel a tether to my home.) I’ll be the first to ask for the 6am shifts.
Step three: spend every loving other minute knitting, writing, embroidering and enjoying ENJOYING my new independent life….and watching whatever beauty happens to blossom next.
And I have to say, I really like the way this could all work out for me.
