…because wait omg why am I quoting a Dave Matthews Band song 20 years later?! Whatever.
I’d been going through a bit of a rough patch for a bit (no reason, just a funk, which was even more frustrating), but I’ve been committing to finding the good in every day, and slowly, things are turning around.
I had a lovely weekend in Shelter Island over Memorial Day with girlfriends, followed by an impromptu “book club” several nights later. As I walked to the subway in the rain, I thought about how scared I was that I wouldn’t meet people when I moved here seven years ago, and how I have filled my life with such amazing, supportive people.
Yesterday, I went out to the National Tennis Center in Flushing to interview someone for a tennis piece I’m writing at work. As I walked through the empty center, both 16-year-old and 32-year-old Theodora geeked out a whole lot.
I got to work, and logged in to see the Cliffs of Moher, one of my favorite places in the world, on my Chrome home screen. (The plugin is Momentum.)
Then, my family booked a li’l family vacay for the end of the month, something we haven’t done forever because of business stuff with my dad.
AND my coworkers and I successfully pulled off a mini-wedding shower for our manager at work. My name is Theodora, and I am the queen of setting up fake meetings.
This morning, unfortunately, did not continue this streak of good luck. I woke up with a terrible stomach bug at 1am.
Not one to waste any kind of PTO, I worked from couch all day with my assistant Bailey by my side. Oof. I was real real happy to see 6pm roll around.
Then, tonight, I got news that I was selected for an important Junior League committee.
Saturday, I am so excited to watch Jordan get married. BRB searching for tissues now.
I’m also waiting for hopefully one more piece of good news this month, but so far, this month is lookin’ pretty good.
What’s good on the horizon for you?
