I am sitting on my couch, enjoying SYTYCD with my husband and enjoying a lovely glass of Merlot. Don't ask what kind because Merlot and Pinot Grigio are the extent of my wine knowledge.
I am relaxing peacefully knowing that my daughter, celebrating her 5th birthday today, is peacefully sleeping in her bed.
I am relaxing peacefully even knowing I have to get up early tomorrow so I can enjoy breakfast with my daughter before taking her to school and heading to me office.
I am relaxing peacefully knowing that in 45 minutes I will head upstairs and enjoy my husband before enjoying my second reading of 50 Shades of Grey.
The past 8 months have been a roller coaster ride. I resigned from a pretty high fluenting job that I loved but hated everything around it: the people in my office, the travel away from my daughter and husband, the stress of not sleeping because of micro-managing bosses...you get the picture. The final straw for me...well, let's just say I stayed too long in a job and I should have known better. Luckily, my support structure at home, with my friends and professionally stayed strong, even if I didn't.
But now, I can smile knowing tomorrow brings better and brighter things: a job where I am appreciated and enjoy doing what I do, even if it is not solving the world's problems; family and friends who love me unconditionally; a best friend that never gives up on me, makes me cry tears of joy thinking about how she has been through so much more than me her whole life, has handled everything life has thrown her with grace and dignity and manages to still provide a shoulder for me to cry upon and arms to hold and reassure me; and the joy of knowing that my husband loves me forever and without question.
Wow, I am very lucky to have what I have and am even happier knowing I have finalized realized it! Now, onto 50!
