05 January 2017


Sometimes, things can change instantly. I kicked off 2017 by being worried about money and my job situation. It's no secret that being a freelancer isn't always a good combination with owning an apartment and having a mortgage. I didn't sleep well at night because I was contemplating what to do about everything and whether I would make it. And then yesterday, within ten minutes, my editor called to give me a job for the next six months (a salary, colleagues and security!) and my bank lady called and said that we could change things around to make things a little easier. It lifted such a weight off of my shoulders and today the sun is shining. Both figuratively and literally. And I am once again reminded that even in the darkest times, light can come quickly and unexpectedly, and it seems like it was always there waiting.
