“When you stop looking in everyone else’s backyard and making comparisons you have so much more energy to enjoy your life.”… Susanne
Well … here we are at the beginning of yet another new year. I’m still shaking my head and wondering what happened to the last one … and … trying to clear the ringing out of my ears from aforementioned year rushing past at breakneck speed. Simultaneously though … I’m also filled with anticipation and excitement. I’m in my new-to-me home … the unpacking is going well … I’m surrounded by awesome new neighbours and beautiful nature … and I’m making plans.
It seems that somewhere in the midst of packing and purging the old place … and moving into and settling into my new space…. I have lost a few things. I’ve lost my need to keep bugging Life and asking: “Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we here yet?” The junk man toted away my dog-with-a-bone approach to solving problems … and it seems that I have (hopefully permanently) misplaced my lack of faith in me and how I’m doing in comparison to everybody else.
Happily … Capital “L” Life gave the girls and I a whole bunch of up-to-date replacements for Christmas … and we’re having a blast trying everything out. Miss Perky is sashaying around in her cute, new, confidence-making outfits … complete with pretty, pink hair ribbons … saucy attitude … and of course perky grin. Ms. Sunshine is enjoying our new long-view glasses with the built-in positive affirmation screen on the side. And me … well I’m really loving sitting side-by-side with Life … on our favorite bench … under our favorite tree … and hugging my brand new-to-me feelings of confidence and happiness. I think that this bodes well for the upcoming year … and happily … Life is in complete agreement.
Godspeed and Joyful Journeying Everyone
