On top of the world

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“ 

Mark Twain

Settling into our new routine, I find myself stronger than I ever thought I could be. I feel as if on the top of the world. Wide expanses of stunning horizons seem to be opening in front of me. At least in my mind’s eyes. A strong sense of peace that I have not had for a very long time, is now taking over. Somewhere deep inside, I know everything is going to be all right.

With Darling Daughter in grade 12, Sweet Son in grade 7 and Lovely Husband’s work always so stressful, I could be feeling anxious. Lets now add for good measure, my new full time position at work and it might be a bit dicey…Yet I feel reassured, quite calm in fact, without having any plausible explanation for it.

It might have to do with the fact I am slowly growing into the person I really am inside.  My daily choices are a reflection of this, and as a result I spend more time doing things I love. I manage to write, even if not as often as I wish, I also get to spend more time with my children being both reassuring and firm while trying to help them in their daily challenges. My camera has just been repaired and I will be going about trying to capture the beauty all around me.…Life is good… 

…I am wishing you the same, dear friend…


  1. Such beautiful words. I'm glad you feel peaceful. I have been feeling the same – with no particular reason, so I just chalk it up to peace in my heart. Bask in your glow, my friend 🙂


  2. Yes life is good but I'm the eternal optimist…drives my wife crazy. Very good that you are feeling more optimistic about the future.


  3. I know how hard you have worked to achieve this inner peace- its you making a difference in yourself I think. It is a pleasure to feel your energy and light shine through you words as well as your amazing photo!


  4. As always the quote and the photo — work together so beautifully. It brightens my heart to hear you talking about feeling on top of the world and the pieces coming together. That you feel you are growing into the person you really are inside? Oh yes. I love that sentence! I love that it is happening and that you are feeling it. Life is good indeed! xoxo


  5. some really great wisdom in this…we are a product of our choices and our days reflect it as well…finding beauty around us is a divine calling as well…sounds like you are in a good place right now…


Talk to me, I am listening :-)
