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 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 😀

    1. 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….

    1. 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.

      1. 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?
