I just realized…

Last night I was laying in bed reading, the hubby was playing with Wall-E, and the daughter unit was in the living room watching The Voice.

I sat there just smiling. This huge smile on my face just smiling. Then I realized. …

I’m happy.

Yes, I’m struggling with my weight, but I’m working on it.

Yes, the daughter unit drives me bonkers, but she’s a teenager and what teenager doesn’t driver their parents bonkers?

Yes, I’m having a really hard time finding a job closer to home, but I have a job. That is more than I can say for others.

Yes, we rent, but we are hoping to be able to purchase the house from our landlord *soon*.

Yes, I have to drive an hour to and from work, but it isn’t an hour spent in traffic all the time.

Yes, I’m doubting myself as a writer.

Yes, my blog doesn’t hit an astronomical amount of “hits”, but those who do visit, I cherish very much. Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit my corner of the internets.

Yes, I have lots issues, but I’m working on them.

Yes, I’m a klutz who hurts her ankle walking or sleeping and who pulls muscles in her butt, but that is just who I am. ( See This Could Only Happen to Me  and  … Part 2 )

Yes, it is true I don’t have a large group of friends, but those few that I do call friends, I have been friends with for YEARS and I would trust them with my LIFE!

Yes, I haven’t found an Agent yet, but in the beginning when I first sent out queries for The Five Angels, my writing was very rough and I learned a lot from that experience. I have since refined my manuscript and am trying again.

and you know what…

I have a wonderful family who loves me, cares for me and I know that there are those out there that can not say that.

I love my life. I can go to the beach whenever I feel like it, the weather is wonderful, it has rained, I have a very well behaved Prince Wall-E Magnifico Puppinio and while there are struggles …

I WOULDN’T TRADE ANY OF IT!

I am truly happy and I haven’t been able to say that in a long time.

( If anyone starts singing that Pharrell  Williams “Happy” song, I will personally smack you upside the head with a fish! /shudder I hate that song. I first heard it when I was a little irked leaving work, and all I can do now is sing it like I’m Smiling Bob! Not to mention that every single time I get in the car I hear that song. Doesn’t matter if I’m off to work, if I’m dropping the daughter unit off at dance, or if I’m just going 2 blocks to the grocery store… THAT DAMN SONG IS ALWAYS ON THE RADIO EVERY SINGLE TIME I GET INTO THE CAR! )

  1. Luckily I don’t know what Pharrell song you’re referring to seeing as I don’t listen to much current music. Not that I don’t like it, I just rarely listen to the radio since I bought an iPod lol Anyhoo!
    I’m glad you’re feeling happy 🙂 You say I’m strong? Finding an agent for your story is amazing to me. I wouldn’t be able to do that.
    I wish you continued happiness, Kimberly 😀

    • Very easy to forget. This was just one of those times I noticed I was just smiling at the feeling of being happy. Obviously, life isn’t perfect, and not everything is going my way, but life is good on the whole. I’ll take it. ☺️

  2. You do know that you are goin to miss that song when they don’t play it as much.

    One hour commute each way is actually a blessing if you have some good audio books to listen to or a podcast you want to catch up on. Or you could listen to the “Happy Song” on an endless loop….

    • Oh you are a vicious… vicious man… seriously?! Happy on endless loop?! I would end up on the news as the crazy lady who went around beating everyone with a fish!

      As for the audio books… I’m working on reading a series by Kelley Armstrong right now, that unfortunately, doesn’t have audio books. /sadness. I have however, stuck the headphones in and listened to audio books during that commute. It is indeed a wonderful way to pass the time.

  3. Wonderful post! Very inspiring and I’m pretty sure it has made others feel good about themselves too (at least that’s the effect it had on me!)

      • Exactly…it’s hard to overlook one’s blessings sometimes…That’s why I liked this post so much…it reminded me of my own;) (besides being happy for yours of course;))

So whatcha thinking?
