When I think about where I was just over a year ago, I marvel at the transformation that’s taken place!
Then, I was beginning a new romance on the shaky legs of a newborn colt. I so needed to be liked, to be loved… It was a beautiful, healthy relationship that fed a hunger inside me in all the ways that I needed. I am so eternally grateful for that!
Now, I have more confidence, acceptance and contentedness than ever. I’m not looking for anything — I mean, except for that physical itch to be scratched. And I’m pretty okay with that.
In fact, I’m feeling a sort of holistic peace settle over all aspects of my life. Yes, I work my ass off! Yes, I run around trying to balance that with the parenting, housekeeping and social life. Yes, I wish I had more time for me — to exercise, read, write, play… But I love what I do, I feel challenged all the time, I find time to ride my motorcycle, socialize with friends and do some of the things I enjoy. My life is far from perfect — far from ideal, even — and, yet, I am more content than ever.
So this is how happiness feels!

So happy for you! And you ride a motorcycle too? Love that. Enjoy your happiness.
I’m a sophisticated badass! 😉
You sure are!! 🙂
Wonderful! What a breath of fresh air, to be able to take stock and realize we are, in fact, closer to our true selves than we thought possible. You give me hope!
I too have found contentment……wonderful feeling!
