Maybe it's just because it's summer and the sun hangs around long past it's expected departure, or maybe it's just a sense of serenity (yeah, I used that word. And yeah, all I can think about are old people diapers..) that has come over me lately. Sure there's internal strife and struggle with the things in life that try to bring me down, but overall I'm happy these days- something I haven't quite settled into yet, but I'm eager to learn to love it. Sure, most days follow a very simple pattern, and there's not much therein to be excited about, but sometimes some things just hit me and I feel blessed to be where I am. Like getting to make my own homemade stirfry for lunch. Or going to yoga on a Wednesday morning. Or spinning on a Thursday morning. Life is really a culmination of all these such simple instances in our life. We can interpret them how we like. I choose optimism. Or rather, it chose me. Whichever way you look at it, life is exactly what we make of it everyday. Sure, some things suck. Like chipped toenail polish. But we move on and try to make the best of it. Who really notices anyway? I choose to be content with the simple pleasures of life. For now anyway.
