today i got up and painted the walls for another 4 hours. a new friend came by and helped me paint for awhile and this helped me feel less overwhelmed and disheartened by some of the most exhausting physical labor i’ve undertaken in my life with the renovation of this old house. another friend has just purchased a house and so after my own work here, i helped pull up carpeting and tear down wallpaper with bare hands in an effort to reveal the true potential of the space they have recently acquired. it made a big difference and was inspiring to see. at the moment, i am wearing 5 hats and doing all i can to stay strong and believe in myself. if you are reading this, send positive thoughts and prayers my way and know that i thank you and return the same to you.
