A Brand New Happy Place


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, May 14, 2012

For the first time in many years, I feel completely and utterly happy.
Content.
In the best shape of my life - physically, mentally, emotionally.
Fulfilled.

It didn't come about the way I expected.
I never could have predicted things would work out quite this way.
It wasn't consistent with the framework I had set up for my life...but sometimes you have to step out of the box to find joy.

I didn't anticipate so much work.
And, yet, it's been easier than I thought it would be.
All it takes is a choice to keep going. Every single day.

And YOU did this.
You inspired me.
You pushed me past my fears.
You saw true value in me when I didn't see it in myself.
You have been there for me when I felt competely alone.
You are available all hours of the day and night.
You fill my head with dreams and ideas and inspiration.

Your tenacity and kindness caught me by surprise.
Your tenderness is so deeply felt.
Your example is what I am building this new life upon.
Your success is the driving force behind my success.

There really aren't words for how much I love you...for bringing me to this new level of happy - with myself, my life, my body, my heart.

Thank you. So very much.
