I hadn’t realized that my last update was so long ago.
I’ve been spending the past few months working hard to mold myself into a more compassionate, patient and empathetic human being. I’m trying to not be so judgmental. As a Scorpio, that’s a hard sell, but at least I can say that I am making a concentrated effort.
I have forgiven the unforgivable.
I have begun putting myself and my needs first more often than I had before.
I have surrounded myself with positive, honest people.
And I have discovered that my ability to feel genuine affection and physical desire for another person is not as damaged as I had previously believed.
So, all in all, life in the light of the summer solstice has been good to me.
I have decided to go back to school to pursue a career in massage therapy. I waffled a bit in the beginning when the idea first entered my mind, mostly because I know how fickle I can be, but the drive to chase down this new dream of mine is still as strong as it was the first time I considered it as a possibility.
The only downside to all of this is that I had to cancel my trip to Poets on the Coast this year because of my schooling. But it’s okay. I’m working hard now to reap benefits farther down the road. The coast will still be there in 2014, and so will I. One way or another.
