Good times. Good vibes. Good company.

Purposeful

Boston was frighteningly warm upon my arrival (so much for travelling with a giant winter coat) and while the trip back felt like a long one, I can't complain too much considering I got back without a hitch unlike poor Lina who was stranded in Cayman and hand to overnight in Florida before getting back to D.C.

Being on island gave me the ability to reflect and look inwards to create a shift in perspective that I hoped to carry with me even once I left.  As I'm writing this, it's now the 27th. of January and although the past few days have been hard, I'm determined to move forward with that lightness and brightness I spoke up guiding the way.

I'm back in the deep, dark depths of Bar prep but thankfully, everything seems to be going well so far!! I haven't had any panic attacks yet and am attacking it head-on, but in a smarter way than before, now that I know how.

One good thing about coming home from holiday is being able to reestablish your routines and given that the changes to mine recently have only been positive attempts to create a better, healthier, happier, life for myself, it's been nice to be able to dedicate myself fully to this.  I've gotten pretty good at eating breakfast now and waking up relatively early rather than staying up until the wee hours of the morn, have started going to dance classes once a week and hope to continue my love of swimming at BU's gym.  I was making time, twice a week, for vocal training as it's been far too long since I prioritised doing things that bring me true happiness over the hard practicalities needed in achieving my goals.

The overall goal I'd say is to not let things I have very little or no control over have the power over me that they have before, to start befriending my anxiety, and implement the seemingly small changes that will in the overall be the building blocks of a creating the life that I want for myself. The fact that this is all happening in January to me has nothing to do with the "new year new me" phase many tap out of as the weeks roll by but more so, I feel, simply needed to happen.  "It's been a long time coming," seems more accurate and with this newly-discovered positive energy, we power forward!

This month Mama turned 55 and finally got that Black Louis bag she's been wishing for (see the adorable tear-filled Skype screenshots below), Lina was given an amazing opportunity to be flown back to Cayman in March to work with the Blue Iguanas (AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!) and I've otherwise been busy keeping up with all of the above.  Bar prep is about to get into the more intense stages with under a month left before the big days are here once again so, as aforementioned, content on here is likely going to be delayed and lighter than usual.

Lots of love and light to you all,
xxEm
