I’ve been waking up in the mornings feeling much happier than I have in a long time. I got a dog recently and I feel like that has a lot to do with this increased happiness.
It’s amazing watching him grow. Anything grow, for that matter. I love having a mini garden and I love having a dog and seeing all the growing changes. My dog is a rottweiler-german shepherd mix and he is so handsome and smart. It’s nice to finish out a long day at work and come home to a dog that is just as excited to see me as I am to see him as opposed to an empty house.
I feel so lucky to have such a well behaved puppy and such a wonderful boyfriend. I love having two boys to come home to. We have a very happy trio.
I will be moving to flagstaff this summer and have been taking mini trips up there recently to start making plans. My boyfriend and I brought Tydus with us. He loves it there. Flagstaff is such a dog friendly environment. I love it!
I can see us moving there and living a very productive lifestyle. More so than here. I’m not sure why that is. I know life is what you make it and you are only as proactive as you allow yourself to be, but I feel like I just don’t have any motivation here anymore. Perhaps because I’ve been living in Ahwatukee for all 23 years of my life thus far. Moving to a new place just opens my eyes. There will be so many places I haven’t been and so many mountains I haven’t hiked etc. that will spark my interest and I just know that once I get up there I will be much more proactive in living the lifestyle I invision for myself.
Sometimes I get frustrated at myself for not living it now, but I know I will be living it soon.
It’s been a long time since I’ve felt so happy, though. Regardless of the stresses that I have about finances and moving and jobs and living situations, each day just seems to be getting better anyway.
I have an amazing boyfriend to come home to at night and now also a wonderful puppy.
I have to remember to remind myself that everything will work out, it always does… even if it works out more stressful than I’d like, I’ve always been okay in the end. Everything will turn out just fine.
And I am so excited about that!
