I am excited today. Excited because I’ve been thinking about how positive these last few months have been, and how I am seeing things in existence now that I could previously not have dreamed possible.
I keep looking at my framed degree certificate and thinking about how thankful I am to have had this opportunity. I feel like some serious ‘loose ends’ have been tied up. It was a long time to wait but I feel like I appreciate that simple slip of paper a whole lot more, at 29, than maybe I would have at 21. I look back over these past three years, in this beautiful city, and I just feel so thrilled.
I am excitedly anticipating my MA course, which begins in four weeks or so. I can’t wait to delve into deeper study once more, and I am so looking forward to the self directed elements of it. I am so thankful for the scholarship I’ve been given which will help so much with that. Again, it feels so resolving, so much of a blessing.
And now I have a beautiful flat to move into as well. I am an expert at making the best of any space …of squeezing myriad bookcases into small corners… But my new flat is genuinely lovely, with fresh white walls, cathedral views, and a wonderful communal garden. Again, it’s such a blessing.
I don’t mean to sound just super hyper and unrealistic about everything, because sometimes things are still tough. I’m sure, for example, I will still have to battle encroaching spiders in my new flat, but today I am just reminded of how things really do ‘come good’. Sometimes it feels like so much is a struggle but then there are breakthroughs, there are gifts that are extravagant and more than you could have hoped for, there a beautiful days when you have space to sit by a river in the sunshine.
Happy Vicki is happy
