“ The good things in life do not create happiness. The good things in life arise from happiness.”I am in a really good place now in my life and I am happy because a lot of good things have been happening and they in turn arose from me being happy. I have been in unhappy in love. I have been a pretty happy single, I have been in a stupid job. I have been in great jobs but I never seemed truly happy. There was a point in my life about two and a half years back that I thought what the heck? You only live once and I jumped at opportunities and I did things I wouldn’t have normally done. And for the first time I was really happy – no but, no doubt- just happy. As a result good things started happening. I was promoted, I met a great guy who would become my husband and life is good.
If anyone would come up to me now and ask if I had the chance would I change anything I would reply that I don’t think I would. I am happy and content where I am right now. Sure there’s the odd battle with my weight (too much of it), money (not enough of it) or the inescapable question any woman will ask herself at one point in her life. Do I want kids or not? I don’t have an answer for all of that right now. The grass seems always greener on the other side and we always want what we don’t have / can’t get. That does not change the fact that right now I am the happiest I have been in a long, long time and I am grateful for that.
