I don’t want money, I want happiness
I don’t want holidays, I want memories
I don’t want luxuries, I want comfort
I don’t want bullshit, I want the truth
I don’t want pity, I want support
I don’t want to be right, I want to be heard
I don’t want to lead, I want to collaborate
I don’t want popularity, I want real friends
I don’t want fame, I want love
Surprisingly I am not feeling bad today at all. Instead of withdrawing, I have been making plans for the future – mine and my daughter’s. At some point between yesterday afternoon and this morning, I remembered that I’m an American. As such, I have a deeply instilled hatred of giving in and an even more ingrained “underdog” spirit that causes me to fight back. The awesome thing is that for the first time in ages, I have bounced back at my usual speedy rate.
So, I now have my eyes wide open and am shifting my focus and energy onto what truly matters the most. My daughter and myself. We are quite a good team she and I and I am grateful to have her in my life. We laugh, we argue and we love. Now with my new plans, we will live.
Now all this means I cannot procrastinate any more – this is a good thing. It also means I have lots and lots to do. Luckily there are not too many dishes to wash up from tea tonight so I can wizz through those. Then I can shift all my stuff into my new fridge/freezer! Sad to be so excited about a kitchen appliance but we both cannot wait to start using it. Having to let it stand for 24 hours has been making us both anxious.
Ahhh simple pleasures 😀
