I can always tell when my mind is in a good, steady place. I don’t mean ‘happy’ or excited, or with new and dramatic things going on. I don’t mean happy-go-lucky which can change in a heart beat depending on who you are and how you work, I mean content …. at peace, calm and steady no matter what is happening around me.
I’m a planner, I like to know where I am headed and how I plan to get there. Whether it’s my choice or someone else’s doesn’t really matter, if I have confidence in and can respect the other person than I am still in a steady and content place.
How do I know? Well it’s simple really, and kind of a let down if you are expecting a great revelation … I know when I am at peace because I do what I love to do, I cook. I cook, and I plan meals, and I pair wine, and I make meal plans that go on for weeks ….. we have so much prepared food in the house that even with the Bear taking home-made for lunch every day we still end up with no room in the refrigerator.
This would be when the Bear needs to get all Domly on my backside and say ‘no more cooking, today we do leftovers, we need to make room …’ LoL
What about you guys? Do you have a simple ‘tell tail’ (giggle, anyone??) that says you are content??
Yes life is still crazy, but it’s also short and not to be taken for granted or too seriously. *wink*

Thanks for sharing! I love this topic 🙂 Well… I guess you could stop cooking or maybe… get a bigger/another fridge/freezer! Hehe 😉
My tell is when I feel a blanket of silence decend inside me and everything feels really still and quiet inside. I feel all warm and snuggly like someone is cuddling my heart. And… I can actually sleep without having to feel overly exhausted.

Well, I have a fridge up stairs, one down stairs both with freezers on top and a full size freezer in the garage to boot! LoL I guess if you really pay attention you could say I am fairly content over all! *wink*
Sleep is something I struggle with as well, being able to get a decent night’s sleep is a sign of no stress, that doesn’t happen often here, my mind rarely stops. I like your imagery of a blanket of silence … 😀

Spanking your feet would get you out of the kitchen for a few days but I don’t think that is a good idea.
See me on the tailgate rubbing a dog and you know it’s a rare slow day with room to rest.
Room to rest is a very good thing, but how do you know you are content even without the rest? Do you have a sign of that?
And never mind the bunny feet!!!! ;P That is actually one of my no go zones, the Bear gets to now but no one else, I don’t even do pedicures for that reason, i hate my feet touched. UGH
Made you squirm so I get to chuckle an e-vile chuckle!
I don’t know, good question. When I’m helping others I suppose.
