Hello There – Update

Jen P.

Hello all! It’s been awhile, again. I wanted to update you on what’s been happening in my life, and perhaps explain why I’ve been so absent for so long. 

First things first – I got a job! I’m still working my first job in bridal, but now I have a second job as well. I’m creating content for a real estate broker. I even have a fancy title – Creative Director. I began last week, and so far, I’m loving it! 

With Christmas gaining speed in its pending arrival, I’m pretty proud of myself for finishing with buying gifts as of earlier this month. As you may know, I love presents. I love everything about giving gifts – picking something either needed or that will be loved, wrapping, watching excited faces after it’s opened – except for spending money. Even then, though, it’s not the most odious thing, because if someone is important enough for you to buy them a gift, they’re important enough to spend your hard-earned cash on them. Usually the anticipation of the joy (I hope!) that the gift will bring outweighs my dislike of spending money, thankfully. 

On another note, I’d been struggling emotionally for awhile. My doctor believes my new medication, the one that helps me so immensely, may be amplifying the effects of another medication I’ve taken for a long time. It led to me pretty much not having emotions at all, which affected every facet of my life. So, we’ve cut back on the older medication, and I can feel my emotions returning, slowly, a little bit at a time.

All in all, I’m entering the Christmas season with a very grateful heart. With the adjustment in meds, the new job, the eventual return of the boyfriend, and the prospect of seeing my family, I am doing well overall. I wish health and happiness for all of you, as well.
