S is for Satisfaction

Satisfaction is something that has eluded me in recent years, but slowly I am achieving it. I have found that I do not need all the things that I once wanted in order to be happy. Actually it was getting rid of things that has allowed me to start feeling content for the first time in a long time.

There was the time on the mountain where there was nothing to get away from and all the time in the world to think. I know what I want, but I have to learn patience which means that I am going to have to learn how to be satisfied with what I have in the meantime. This isn't the first time I have ever started over, or the first time doing it as single parent but this time is different.

There are no regrets over the ending; if there is a regret to be had it is that it began in the first place. Now I am hoping that I can show my youngest daughter what it means to be happy, content and truly satisfied with what you have in this life.

Satisfaction is not something that comes from material possessions or relationships. It has to come from within. It's a lesson that has taken far to long to learn but I'm getting there. Hopefully the baby will learn it early on, and never stop doing what she believes in because of anyone else.

This year I'm taking my youngest to my mother's and hubby is going with his parents to their family. Someone is cooking, I have no idea who. All I know is that they're huggy people and I'm not.

Well, I'll be going now, I have nothing else to ramble about.

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.

Achiements and Goals

The last year I managed to meet my biggest goal, one that was long overdue and obsessively planned. I moved home from Arkansas and left the stupidity surrounding me behind. Now I am focusing on the next set of goals, and finding that I no longer no where anything is in relation to the objective that I am searching to achieve. Things change in four years but not that much.
There are still animals in my orbit, or rather animals have returned to my orbit since they aren't ours. We get visits from the cat that lives downstairs, who promptly makes himself at home each and every time. Theresa worries about how well he is cared for while he is in our new home visiting.

There were a lot of goals set during the last year and looking back the largest of them was achieved; now it's time to move onto the next set of goals and reevaluation of the ones that weren't achieved to determine if they are worth continuing toward or if they require altering. Planning for them was obsessive, an…
