life is good
where to begin, where to begin....
it seems so much has happened the past week. steps forward, and then steps back. and sometimes the steps have absolutely nothing to do with each other!
I ate some amazing garlic last night. I know, it sounds simply crazy. garlic? yes! I actually felt silly last night. again, sounds crazy. I was with some girlfriends of mine. over the past few months, we have grown closer. two are ladies that I knew and grew up with. over the years, we lost touch, got back in touch, then lost it again. the third? nothing more needs to be said other than I am so happy to call her friend. =)
back to the silly...if you haven't been able to read between the lines since I began this journey of blogging years ago (sunday november 20, 2005 to be exact), my life has gone through some major transformations. my kids have grown, my marriage fell apart. I have moved back home and have been surrounded by family and friends I had forgotten how important are to me.
I feel like me again. and it feels amazing.
there have been many a nights I cried myself to sleep and wondered to myself, what is my life? but last night? I am not certain what it was....the company, the atmosphere....I really don't know. but I laughed, I felt silly. and it felt great.
other things have been playing out as well in my life. I have wondered at what age do we just move on, let go, and allow the things in our life to just be shed without worry of upset or consequence? if there is one thing I have learned over the past few years is that life is too damn short. at the end of the day, you answer to yourself. and if you can truly fall asleep at night with a sigh of relief that you did the best you could on that day, that you are happy with where you are in your life, then all is good.
all can be good.
is it good for me right now? I am still waiting for the last duck to get his ass in line but in most other aspects, life is good. sorta like jake, you know, the life is good guy?..
