“She wins who calls herself beautiful and challenges the world to change to truly see her.” — Naomi Wolf
I have a secret that I have been keeping for a little while now. I am in love and it is wonderful. I have fallen completely in love…with my life. which is wonderful, because for along time I was completely disenchanted with it. But now, what a difference.
There is something very cozy and wonderful about being inside on a cold, wet rainy night. A nice fire, cats purring, TV on, a warm blanket and writing away. The best seat in the house is always under a warm blanket. And soon I will have a new full time opportunity. It is not perfect, but this little life, is all mine.
And I am such a homebody that, at least to me, being home and cozy on a cold is just perfect. Once the sweat pants on are, I am in the for night. Comfort is king, even though it might not be sexy or seductive. oh, and the warm fuzzy socks. Those are a must.
Because it really is about the simple things, when it comes right down to it. Those creature comforts that we grew up with, that make us feel secure, and make us feel nice and warm even on a cold dark night.
And when you have worked hard, rebuilt your life from scratch, then you deserve to enjoy the spoils of all your hard work. To reward the spirit for working hard, you must also play hard. Because you have to reward yourself for reaching your goals. And part of that is taking the time to really enjoy all those wonderful creature comfort..
And you can never forget to be grateful and still pray that gratefulness.
So if your life is still under construction, if you are still working hard to get to that place where you can feel the sunshine on your soul again, know that it is there and you can reach it. Know that all the hard work, tears, heartache, restlessness, fear, blood and sweat are not in vain. You will get there, to that place where you look out and realize that you are in love too. Just breath and have faith. You can do it.
