How is it already August and how come I've blogged so little? The answer is probably that I've been so busy with work that once I'm home the last thing I want to do is sit behind another computer screen and start typing away again.
A mini life update: I got a pay rise and a promotion, I've been in London with work almost every week (exciting and exhausting all at the same time), I'm going to Rio de Janeiro for 2 and a half weeks on Wednesday and I'm generally very happy with my life.
I feel like my sense of happiness has suddenly crept upon me. I'm not even sure where it suddenly came from. I don't know whether it's because I've succeeded in my little milestones, for example getting a promotion or finally being able to run 5km in under 30 minutes (not every time but most times and that's what counts).
I also feel like my happiness is really showing in my self and personality. It's an odd sense of being 90% content with my life. The balance used to tip more towards the 'unhappy' side so I'm savouring this feeling and trying not to jinx it.
Rambling post but more exciting Brazil themed posts will follow shortly no doubt.
