Life has been a lot more fun this past 12 months. I used to just like working (at my job) in it’s various forms. Now I like lots of things other that work. I find it pretty easy to smile now. Smiling has usually been a chore in my past. I find myself connecting in a pleasing way (to me and to the other party, I sense) with the various strangers who cross my path day by day. Until now, I wasn’t very much like that. I’m different. Really different.
