Thank you! I feel a little cheesy, posting so much shmoopy, sappy stuff all the time lately, but, hey, it's where I'm at right now.

There seems to be lots more acceptance, satisfaction, and being happy and at peace with your life coming through in your writings than there used to be. Just thought you would like to know that it shows.
Thank you for taking the time to say this, Nyc.
It really does mean a lot coming from you -- you were, of course, the second-ever person to comment on this blog, and you've taken a lot of time over the years (wow, years, it's true) to keep up with my story and provide advice. I really appreciate hearing it.
I think that I've been making stronger choices lately -- telling Erik how I felt (FINALLY), changing things up with Davis (FINALLY). AND I've been lucky -- Gia getting her bisexuality back, finding Clay so quickly. Between those things, it's easier and easier to be content. With more experience also comes more perspective, so that when there's a communication hiccup or something that makes me briefly jealous, I can better assess whether what's happening is a little thing or a big thing, and how to efficiently and simply address it if it needs addressing.
I am sure that there will be difficulties ahead one way or another, that's just life, but I'm enjoying the lovely place I've stumbled into this spring.
