Life+Stuff: Love your life
I’ve spent years feeling overwhelmed, anxious and exhausted. I’ve tried to conform, achieve and contort myself into standard issue roles.
I’ve failed in varying degrees and I’m finally starting to feel OK.
I have taken to sleeping in, eating whatever I want and reading instead of going out.
My mind has started to open to possibilities that I had previously ignored. Maybe I will be childless and that will be fine. Maybe I will never remarry and that will be fine too.
The only things I seem to need these days are coffee in the morning and tea at night, restorative sleep, easy, joyful friendships, interesting work, things to read, watch, listen to and do, wine, water and a blessed abundance of fresh food. I love walking – around my neighbourhood or in the bush – and hanging out with my cat.
I feel happy in this quiet, simple place.
Have you figured out how to be happy? What are you doing?
