I’m not saying Jinx cured my narcolepsy, I’m saying that this dog has helped me or forced me to find a routine that works with my narcolepsy.
These past few months I’ve honestly felt like I don’t have narcolepsy. I’m up early, in bed early, and getting fresh air multiple times a day. I believe the consistent routine, fresh air and joy of having a dog have been the largest contributing factors to my overall wakefulness. I never had a motivating factor to be awake early, let alone out walking regardless of weather…but now with Jinx I have no options. We wake up at 6am; we walk for 10-20minutes (weather depending). We go home, we eat a healthy breakfast, we play and then I get ready for my day. Some days I even squeeze the gym in at 5:30am. It’s really been awesome for me. I feel awake, I feel motivated to get things done, and I am overly happy to be looking after the little munchkin. We walk a few times each day and the sunshine is nice, it’s working and for that I am grateful.
My summer is looking exciting, I’ll be done working May 1st. From that day on I’ll be working my own hours between photography and my Mamas ceramics business. I can’t wait to see where the journey takes. I’ll be happy with the amount of work that I can accomplish as I’ll be able to dedicate more of myself. I might have less money, but money isn’t everything when you’re finding joy in your daily endeavors.
I’ll be doing a trade show at the end of the month, it’s a Mommy show. I’m excited to take photo booth style pictures of little toddlers and babies, it will be a neat experience. I hope the investment brings in more clients, and gets my name out there. I’ll be praying for good weather so that they have a good turn out!
All in all, I’m happy. I’ve moved out, I’ve found success and I’ve got a lot of love in my life. Thanks parents for letting me get the little rascal 6 months ago, best decision you ever made ;) haha
