I believe in happy endings. No, not the white knight, fairy tale kind, but the kind where good things happen to really terrific people. A couple of my dear friends have shared with me their wonderful news - joyous, wonderful, life-changing news - and I couldn't be more pleased for them. I share their joy and excitement. I look to each of them as role models - even though they are both younger than me. Both of these women have been true to themselves and have followed courageous paths to be that way.
I believe in happy endings for me, too. I don't know what that will mean, but I do know that I can't "unlearn" what I've learned on this journey and while I don't believe my happy ending will be all big and splashy, it will be peaceful, joyous and right. And honestly, I feel like I'm living my happy ending right now. I feel like I am, perhaps for the first time, living my life. It's not all perfect here in the land of Rainbows and Unicorns, but I'm not Someday-ing it away. And it's exhilarating.
I ran the gauntlet through Food Pusher Alley (office kitchen) three times yesterday to fill my water bottle and I was victorious! I ate healthful and nutritious food yesterday. But I need to start wearing my glasses all the damned time - I was packing my lunch and at the last second, noticed I was getting ready to pack a container with half an onion and half a summer squash. Now I believe in eating whole, real food, but that would have been a little too real for me!
On the exercise front, well, today is a new day. I had planned to rearrange my schedule to take in my first ever Zumba class - well, I did rearrange my schedule to take my first ever Zumba class. And in a rare moment of "I don't want to walk in there by myself", I bailed. I don't know where that came from, as I usually just soldier right on through those things and go where I want to, with or without accompaniment, but yesterday, I just wasn't feeling it. Which I could have recovered from later in the day, but I just didn't. I won't feel guilty about it - today is a new day - and there's another TNT class on the books.
Note to tea drinkers: Please recommend a nighttime tea. Thanks.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Share in the joy.
