Im shaken. Completely rattled. In a good way. Im in love with life and its unexpected turns. Its tossing me around and im tumbling beautifully, just enjoying the ride. Im so happy its hard to breathe. This happiness halts me, physically stopping me in my tracks, and forces me to take it all in. I feel like the luckiest person in the world right now. Not everything is going right though, there are things going wrong, failures occurring, and things being neglected, but everything is wonderful. Every single thing is beautiful. My perspective is perfect. Every misstep, is still a step. A step in my direction, whatever that maybe. Its nice to take my foot off the gas for a while on this journey, slowing enough to appreciate while still progressing. Im loving life. Im loving myself. Im loving every moment.
“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
