so…what’s changed?

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!

ready to roll

Have you missed me? I’ve been so busy this past week my head is spinning:

  • Remember that motorcycle in my garage? Well, I’ve tracked down the title, taken it to the shop, got my endorsement, checked in to getting a matching helmet (hello, I gotta look cute doing it!) and more. With any luck, I’ll be ready to roll in a couple of weeks. I mean, I’m all ready to roll…it’s the bike I’m waiting on.
  • I had two second dates over the weekend. Both were fun and, yet…well, more on that later.
