Life has thrown me some curve balls and as you all may know, I am no baseball player. I’ve really struggled with learning to accept things as they are and trying to be content with the life I have right now. There have been plenty of down times, but for the first time in a long time I’m allowing myself to be happy. I’ve always tried to have the mindset that if I’m patient, but still persistent things will fall into place. That never giving up will lead to good results. Maybe those results aren’t what I expected, but they are good nonetheless. I’m really, genuinely happy right now after a very long stretch of being unhappy. I’m excited about life again. Change is what makes life interesting and worth living. I am here. I am in my own place. I am feeling all the richness that life has to offer me here and now. I am grateful. I am whole.
