MY GIRLFRIEND! Xoxo

Creating and having my very own life.

Being free to have this life as my own, create it and own it in my self. :)

Oh goodness....so many things!

Reading inspiring posts, here and in other places. Seeing that there is so much kindness and compassion from many, to balance the harsh things in the world.
Eating my dinner in the evening, walking in my favourite woods..... seeing a Jackdaw walking outside my window when I have just woken up, then look up at me and tip his head on one side....and I am suddenly vibrantly aware that I am surrounded by living intriguing characters; the birds, who pass by us every day and only sometimes we notice them.
When the stove lights easily....
When a dear one greets me from Spirit, filled with undying Love.
Being able to walk, and eat, and sleep, and breathe, and even run -at my age.
When the sun teases you, just behind a cloud, then suddenly breaks through and floods you with yellow light, then disappears again.
Nice dreams.
Starry skies.
Frosty mornings with blue skies.....but even moreso -snowy mornings with blue skies, or even snowy mornings with just snow.
Utter quietness....and on the other hand, that late show on Classic FM called smooth classics (lovely!)
Having a great book to read.
When a mean dog gives me a lick and a wag after weeks of working with her.
Somebody I know saying they now have the all-clear from a cancer scare.
etc....etc....

It makes me happy to be here. To experience life and love. It makes me happy that I am healthy, vital, vibrant and alive. I am enthusiastic about life.

It makes me happy that I know deep inside that all is well. That I am loved, appreciated. It makes me happy that I feel so free and calm. I am confident about myself and my life.

It makes me happy that I don't have fears about the future. I just feel that everything will turn out well and that faith really gives me ability to enjoy moment by moment. My faith in goodness and love makes me happy. I just love being here.

I find happiness in all things. Like petting my cat and listening how he purrs. I am happy that today was a beautiful sunny day. That I enjoyed this day with people I love.

I am happy that I am able to do what I love. And that I learned to focus mainly on positive things in my life. Happiness is fun :D

My thoughts: dreaming about the future and making my dreams into reality, thinking about my past and reflecting back at what i'm capable of.

Cooking a good meal then eating it.

That feeling of aliveness especially when pursuing a passion.

Running outdoors.

Martial Arts training and pushing my body beyond its normal limits.

Nature Hikes.

Exploring and traveling to new places.

Laughter.

The way the sky changes colors before and after a sunset.

God in all Its infinite names. :)

And dancing ballet is one of the ways I express that Joy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OR-n3Rg6E8

Happiness is a choice
 
I do! It's only a choice. :hug3:

I am a whitewater kayaker, and I couldn't imagine my life without it. I am extremely passionate about it.
