I woke up today with this feeling I haven't had in months, possibly a year. I don't know if it can be called relief or what, but this feeling is optimistic and good.
I've had this terrible headache for about a month. I seriously thought there was something wrong with me. It turns it out that it was just a cold, turned sinus infection, with retroactive congestion and muscle tension. But today, no headache.
The anxiety, sadness, bummed-out-ness that I've felt at work for the past three-plus years isn't here. It's just not. Nothing has happened, nothing has changed. I just feel different.
I feel good. I've got this wonderfully supportive husband, who listens to my rants and raves. I've got this adorable two year old, who just lights up my world. I've got this new little person on the way; even though I've already gained 15 pounds, I'm really excited about that.
I guess there is an explanation, but man, it's surprising.
