It is a fact I have lived with my entire life. I have never been so self-fooled as to claim any sort of sufferance.
I am always getting frustrated and caught up in what I don't have now:
my degree, a baby, a little house of my own, financial stability, heck; a job right now.
as opposed to appreciating that which I do have:
The most attentive husband I could ever ask for, a loving family, a warm place to live, food to eat.
As I was nearing the halfway mark of my run tonight, Claire de Lune began playing on my ipod and an especially cool breeze greeted me from across a grassy field.
It was perfect.
In that moment, my breathing came easy and my uphill pace felt like a soaring accomplishment. I was exactly where I wanted to be and it was amazing.
Here's to holding on to the fleeting moments of peace and perfection to help us through the rest.
