Early Christmas Magic.

“Don’t you worry there my honey. We might not have any money, but we’ve got our love to pay the bills”-Ingrid Michaelson. 

Last night I listened to “You and I” by Ingrid Michaelson, and I’ve had it on repeat since then. I think the basic meaning of it is having someone to share your days with while also giving back to others as much as possible. That’s what I want to focus on today: giving. The past few days have been great for me socially, and I’m proud to say that I haven’t been this happy since my happy memories of senior year at Salem (which is big). I’ve been smiling for days, and it’s a good feeling.

I think a lot of this has been centered around the realization that I really do want to help people. Yes, I love Psychology, but it goes deeper than that. I know personally how beneficial counseling can be. It’s benefited me over the past 4 years, and I’ve been able to accept things that happened in my childhood that I thought I’d never be able to face again. I’ve somewhat gotten over the physical pain of my past. Though I still have pain, of course, the hard parts are done. The surgeries and intensive physical therapy is all over. I no longer have a rough relationship with my mom because though she pushed me as a child, I’ve understood how much she must love me to have the ability to force herself to push me so hard. That’s some hardcore love right there, and I know that both my parents will have my back through anything, and I love them for that. Also, my relationship with my older brother has improved. Things changed when I went away to boarding school, and I think it was because we both matured and realized that we needed each other.

Before I went to boarding school (as in when I was much younger), my friend Webb acted as my brother since my own brother wasn’t at a place yet in his life to be the brother I truly needed. Webb has known me since I was young, and I truly would be lost without him. He’s helped me through so much and has reminded me on a regular basis just how wonderful I am. I feel like we all need someone in our life like that every once in a while. Webb is from my hometown, and in March he moved to California in order to see more of the world and get out of our small town. I was pretty upset when he moved because even though we don’t see each other much, we’re incredibly close.

Therefore, I’m happy to report that I heard two days ago that Webb is coming back home for good this week. It’s like Christmas has come early. I don’t know the details as of now, and will find out when I see him over Christmas, but I am so happy because I’ve really missed him. And I’ve gone through a lot these past few months without him being only a state away, and that has been hard. But come Christmas, my world will be right side up again!
