A few weeks ago, if you had told me that in the coming weeks that I'd be happier than I was at the current moment, I probably would have laughed at you. But then... something changed. Something clicked. Even despite that mini-meltdown of sorts... I found happiness in a place I never imagined.
The past week and a half has been a whirlwind of emotion for me. Fear of the future. Unease about my upcoming grad school interview. Annoyance over the work studies I'm in charge of not showing up for their shifts and residents spraying chocolate sauce all over the entryway (which is being cleaned up as I type this).
But mostly... happiness.
To quote a wise friend, "When it comes to relationships, there is one thing I have never been more sure of. Love finds you. Without warning, and without much of a chance to resist. Bar the door, lock the windows, turn out the lights, it doesn't matter. The barriers get torn down."
And right now, I couldn't agree more.
