|I'm ridiculously happy!
First off, although I just turned 39, I still feel like I'm 27. Well, except for the bad knees, tweaked left ankle, bursitis ridden left shoulder, painful hip sockets, and of course the gimpy, arthritic right hand that will never be the same since the injury of '08 that was due to the meningoencephalitis that tried to kill me at the beginning of '09. Besides all that, I feel great! Seriously, that was all supposed to be a bit tongue-in-cheek, although not a bit of it is a lie. I do find getting older humourous most of the time, which I think is necessary to live a long and happy life. If you can't laugh at it all, you're going to end up old before your time and in a serious state of mental collapse...at least that is my opinion on it.
I've learned why it is young people are supposed to be the ones whipping out children. I am thoroughly convinced childbirth is really not meant for people older than 30. I think because of my age and subsequent wisdom, that I am turning out to be a much better mother than I would have any earlier in life, but the bearing of children totally kicks the body's ass! I had many old dance injuries left over from my ballet career that get a wee bit worse every year. Throw an extra unexpected 70 lbs of baby weight on top of those, push an 8 lb watermelon out the old hoo-ha, and then struggle to lose that last 30 lbs of extra weight while having to tote around not only a growing human but all the equipment necessary not to kill it, or if your glass if half full, keep it alive, well then you've got a party going on in all the achy spots and you're the guest of honor!
|We'll be happy zombies together!
|You'll be doing what?
|Your hoo-ha looked like what?
|Those dumb twits!
|How could anyone be impatient with this face?
I'll no longer fall without a purpose!
To wrap it all up, this last year has taught me about love and what it truly means to be in love, how to accept who I am both inside and out, and how to be ultimately happy with the life I have without feeling the need to seek out one that is meant for someone else. I've found where it is that I belong, what my purpose is on this planet, and where my strengths and weaknesses lay. I also discovered I can handle more than I thought I could, and that I don't need to be a better me to deserve love. I've earned my place in this life, and I've earned the right to be happy with who I am and who I'm going to be. I've also learned that I'm an excellent mother and Piper has made me a better, more forgiving, more joyous, more accepting, more honest, and more loving person that I ever knew I could be. I've also learned that I am more of a sap than I thought possible, hahahahaha! Geez, I'm just too dang happy these days! I fart sunshine and butterflies and unicorns and candy sprinkles, and it annoys people! But mostly this past year I have learned that life totally rocks and nothing gets better than the life I have right in front of me. I'm a damned lucky woman, that is for sure.
|Love makes me even goofier than before!
And eating avocados is more fun than it should be!
