Elevated Bliss

Is it possible to be in awe of your own life? That is how I've been feeling lately.  I've been thoroughly rewarded for my efforts to be a better person, for my belief in positive energy flow and for my faith in the universe. I've changed so much in such a short span of time, but then again, I'm always changing. I forgave to heal. I let go to move forward. I gave without expectation. I simplified and I delve further into developing my understanding of universal energy, life and how to live positively.

It's soo easy to over complicate life by over thinking, by reading into things, but by simply taking things as they are, as they are shown to you, life is much easier. Accepting not only that you are only in control of yourself, but also that what others do has nothing to do with you, creates peace. Living in and focusing on the present, being present in the now, releases depression and anxiety. Enjoy what you are being given right now. Consistently think positive thoughts and practice gratefulness to continue receiving good things. AND, have faith that any trials that come your way are for the greater good.

My life is very surreal right now and I am extremely grateful. My children are growing and learning, developing and becoming wonderful lil' people. I'm proud of them and of my efforts to continually improve my parenting skills. I'm part of the healthiest relationship I've ever had with a complimentary man that is everything I could ever want. I'm incredibly lucky to have the perfect partner for me. I have family, great friends, my health and steady income. There's nothing lacking.  There's an ever present desire to learn, grow, love and, not only be happy, but hopefully spread that happiness to others.

I don't write this to be smug.  I make mistakes.  Some days are easier than others to follow the path of positivity and gratefulness.  I do my best daily, learn from my mistakes and work to do better the next day.  I can always improve and will always strive to.
