Thankful Thursday 20 October 2022

Thursday, again!? I can’t believe it’ll be Halloween in 11 days and then there will be two more months until I open Happiness Box 2022. I started working on Happiness Box 2021’s scrapbook again, with David’s encouragement, but it’s not going to be as ornate as other years. 2021 was a weird year, and I know 2022 will also have some weirdness too.

I shared this with David already; I shared with him my Thankful Thursday exercise. I told him I was very thankful for him and he said he was very grateful for me. I truly am – not only has he been encouraging me with Happiness Box 2021, but NaNoWriMo as well. I return the favour – I listen to him and I also encourage him as well. We lift each other up.

Yesterday was my 1 month with the Public Defender’s and I had my one month review.

I’m doing well, I’m autonomous and independent. Everyone enjoys my positive attitude and the attorneys I research for are really happy with how I work. I’ve helped them a lot. T said, “you’re so kind! Are you sure you’re not a serial killer?” We laughed and laughed.

He also said, “I don’t know what happened with the DA, but they lost a valuable employee. I’m glad you are on our team now.”

Today has been such a great day. I feel like I’m finding my fit and it feels good. I’m sorry if I’ve been over-the-top cheery for the past few weeks. It just feels so good to be in my elements, and appreciated, and loved.

I’m also thankful for friends and family. What are you thankful for?
