no crisis for me

i do not miss my youth. i’ve done more than most. i have no list of things i should have tried or regretted not doing. i have no need to go back and visit those things i tried and moved on from. where i am now, where i have worked so hard to get to, is okay with me. is it where i thought i’d be? no. but it’s not a place i need to escape from.

i have become far more kind to myself. understanding that time is short and life is fragile. i have isolated myself because of my circumstance but it doesn’t mean that i truly feel like doing anything reckless  at this stage of my life is warranted or necessary. i like my comforts. i like simple pleasures and gentleness. and i don’t want things any other way.

    It’s wonderful to be comfortable in you own skin. That is a learned skill.

  2. I like even the way that sounds.

    I think many of us are not content where we are, but we expect so much, most times too much. We expect those around us to be the answer or path to happiness and peace. We expect our spouses to be an answer, or we blame them for their short comings. All we have control over is our own “stuff”…….if we’re capable of seeing the good we have gathered in our lives…… if we can find reasonable compromise in our relationships…..and if we can feel content through embracing this…….we can in fact be kinder to ourselves…..I think beyond all selfish desires this one is the most demanding and necessary…… and in the end rewarding.

      if we can find good…it would make things so much nicer

      • myarousal says:

        Yes it would. It’s how we perceive life, ourselves. If we view ourselves as victims, we will never see the “good”……You are an amazing girl……you know that?……Right?

        like many others, i diminish my own value and believe that simply ordinary is so unusual for people to see and experience any more, that they believe it as differential and special…when in fact..it is anything but.
        but thank you for saying so

    Your welcome. In today’s age, the simple and ordinary seems bland and boring…..to be sublime one must be eclectic and fabulous….but in reality the everyday mom who holds the family together in every way…..and yet is full of intense desire….hungering to be “claimed” by the families Alpha member….loved and cherished for her passion……now that is not simply ordinary…that’s simply amazing!
