A Paleo brunch of chili ground turkey with sweet potatoes (gotta love left-o’s!), cage-free eggs and a dollop of clean and organic guacamole. What I’m loving about today is the promise of a full quiet day ahead in my studio to work on some art projects before I hit the trail at the marina tonight with the hubs for my training for a 5k in August (I haven’t given up so I guess that’s a good sign). It took me a long time (and I mean years) to achieve these bursts of equilibrium in my life where I am able to follow all my heart’s desires and still be there for all the people who need me. #wonderwomanproblems. And I’ve always wondered when I can finally say (all factors considered) that I’m living the life I’ve always wanted. I have waited so long to be able to say that. It’s our crazy schedule that usually gets in the way and always steals it from me.
Today, as I sit here in my kitchen after I’ve said the graces, I realize I have it! It’s not about having a fat bank account nor a big big house, or the opportunity to see the whole world as often as others. People may also think what an “empty nest” our home might be without the pitter patter of little feet but to me, right here, right now, as I peacefully sit in my kitchen looking forward to a day of art making and achieving health goals, and growing a side business where I am able to express my creativity, and calling my parents before bed, and laughing with the hubs… our simple joyous life. This is the equilibrium I’ve always run after.
Yes, I am living the life I’ve always wanted.
Thank you, my ever loving God.
