I was going to write about Why I am Here, Part II, but again, life gets in the way! And that, my dear, is the point. Life is good. It doesn’t need to be categorized, analyzed or parlayed into anything else. It is right in front of you.
And right now, in front of me, we have a father and daughter frolicking in a pool, a dog laying down after a good ‘ole day of playing with his doggie friends and going for an evening walk; and me, here typing to you, whatever the hell is going on in my head. But my hope is that I am able to convey not just “what is happening” but why it is important, amazing and good. Why my life is so amazing, because it is.
Am I just lucky, or have I come out of the dark and seen with new eyes?
Something to ask yourself too. Is your life not good, or are you not seeing what is good about you, about it. That is what happened to me. I was comparing my life to some superstar dream fantasy far away, and I could never live or be happy that way. Now, as I sit here, the music playing (“Here Comes the Sun” by the Beatles), I dream a new dream: the dream of my life as it is now. Better than planned, appreciated beyond measure, and endlessly full of possibilities for tomorrow. No need to prolong. Just say:
Yes, this day is enough for me! This is fun!
I am having fun. With you, with me, with everyone.
My husband, not knowing what I was writing about, just hollered from the pool:
“Hey, mommy, this is fun!”
Not kidding. There are no accidents, only appointments, she said.
This one is fun indeed.
