i like new year’s. scratch that, i love new year’s. it gives me energy to go after the things i want. this month felt like a big celebration, a marked change in myself. i spent so much time dancing. i was reminded i am worth a second thought, a second read. i stayed out late and spent time with people i care about. i had my last counseling session and it felt good to end something nobly. i celebrated birthdays, went through a katy perry phase, and went to an estate sale every week. i think i experienced every emotion in january, and that’s all i ever hope for.
