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*
