First up, here is an illustration of how my heart is feeling: Strong! I'm proud of having gone through heartache, disappointment and even just the general wear and tear that you'd expect from life, and still keeping my heart soft and open to loving the world .
Here a few things that Im grateful for. I spend a lot of time talking to my dog and watching birds, so that's what immediately came to mind for this exercise.
This is a comic from my painful memory. Throughout these reflections I started recalling my years following highschool when I was lost and directionless. I tried out a lot of different jobs and activities looking find a place where I could fit in, feeling as though I had no real center. It's nice to look back and realise that I haven't felt like that in a long time. I like my life and who I am now. And also, my job putting glitter on teddy bears at a card company is a lot more comfortable than having swords thrown at me.
