It’s been quite the week.
I successfully filed my name change paperwork last Friday and was assigned a court date that’s now a little over seven weeks away. So now I’m working on pulling together everything I need to bring to court (and to the DMV, where I’ll be headed directly after the hearing).
Adulting is hard. And scary. I’ve done way more of it in the past week than I’ve made myself do in a while. And I’m proud of myself for doing the hard and scary things.
But then yesterday at work was just one of those days, and I ended up leaving a little early and skipping my weekly volunteer commitment because I felt like shit, choosing to hide at home where I could curl up under blankets and read and pretend the rest of the world wasn’t there.
Adulting is hard. And scary. And it’s a process that often feels a lot like two steps forward, one step back.
But still, progress is progress. I’ll get there in the end.
