Finding the quiet center
For the first time in many years, my outlook is rather serene. I don't think I've felt this peaceful since childhood. Yes, I'm a worrier with decades of practice. But I don't do much of that anymore. Drama? Conflict? No thank you.
I imagine this change of heart occurred mostly because I finally realized how little control I ever had over any circumstance. (I never said I was a quick learner.)
Feeling at peace... Over the years I wondered what that would be like. Now it seems I'm looking at the world through thick safety glass. I try in my own small, quiet ways to help make it a better place. But I won't try to control it.
Magdalenaville is pretty daggone close to Nirvana right now. Even though the Kitten from Heck lives here.
