I had a really nice conversation with a good friend last night, and as it turns out we both are coming to the same realizations about life at the same time.
Sometimes, the experiences you have in life don't seem like they leave that much of a mark. Then you look back at them collectively and think;
"Wow, I'm actually the same person I've always been,
I just know more of what I want now."
I mean, you change as a person, in terms of what you want from life,
but I'm noticing my personality is completely the same.
Sometimes we pass into stages of our lives quietly, without fanfare,
and sometimes they are indelibly book-marked by something.
Someone once told me
"You have everything you need -
to deal with any kind of situation,
any kind of stress or sadness,
- inside you"
I'm realizing now, that I have the choice to make everyday wonderful,
and nothing ever holds me back but myself.
Everyday Andy and I take the time to get up earlier and make breakfast together.
These moments are so special to me.
And worth any extra effort or time.
