My 365...

"Oh my goodness I am so blessed!"

"Oh my goodness what a perfect day!"

Oh my goodness...Veronica shut up!

Do I make you all nauseous?

Let me explain...

Perfection for me is a state of mind.  Feeling blessed, is a state of mind.  I am not saying my life is perfect, and rained upon by the gods of "Happiness', "Fortune", "Good Health", or by God himself.  Nothing, or no one, is that perfect or has such a golden life.

However, I sincerely feel that all that good fortune, happiness, and blessings, do indeed reside in my brain.

It is a state of mind.

Life is by no means perfect.  I have the same problems that everyone else experiences.  A not-so-great marriage, Rheumatoid Arthritis, a daughter who has no clue who I am, who I really am, four mischievously stubborn sons, a seriously overcharged procrastination gene, ridiculously high utility bills, a single gray hair that resides on my left eyebrow.  "Really gray hair?  Is it not enough that you own 90 percent of the real estate on the top of my head?"  The list goes on.

Now let me explain the blessed perfection....

"None of it really matters to me!"

I reside in a mental state of "being" where I have learned to accept the things I can not change.  I no longer take anything personally.  I have realized that everyone on this planet comes with their own character, and their own pre-conceived notion of "me", and none of that matters as long as "I" know who I am.  And I do.

We all have a story.  I have a story.  The key to a happy my humble opinion... is that you do not go through life re-living, obsessing, re-telling, feeding that story.  Instead, take today, take this opportunity in life to create a new story.  A good story, a happy story, a positive story where circumstance, tragedy, genetics, and hard luck are NOT the writer...YOU are now the writer.  You yourself determine the path of the story line....not fate, not all the people you feel have done you wrong, not all that negative baggage and spooky skeletons in the closet waiting to pounce!  Rawrrr....


Sure life can be hard, and it can really suck, but so what?  Life only sucks if you let it.  We all have the "God" given intelligence to move on, rise above, and make the best of whatever time we have left on this planet.

I chose happiness.

And I chose to live with that gray hair that feels the need to invade the space over my left eye.  "Hello gray hair."  (Who am I kidding here...where are my tweezers?)  *pluck*  Ahhhh, now life has found balance.  Nirvana....

Have a stupendously magnificent weekend.

I know I will.  :)

My photos of the day...

What is this curious little shrine?

I placed the zen garden that Kori and Garret brought me on my windowsill.  Over time, more treasures have gathered there.
Blake has added most of them.  I single silk carnation, a pink granite egg, a beautiful sea shell, and a mayonaise lid of interesting rocks he found in the garden.  All for mama.  :)
