Transfixed by falling rain: random thoughts before bed


–I love hearing the rain fall on our skylights; there is nothing quite like knowing that I am surrounded by nature, able to luxuriate in its beauty, but sheltered from its harsher side.

–My feet are in need of a serious makeover. The dancing I have been doing in preparation for Grease has torn them up a bit.

–I love my legs, and I am so thankful for them. Even on my fattest of days, I look down and they bring back at least a little surge of confidence.

–Life is beautiful, the universe is so kind, and I really am so much happier than I was last year. I didn’t even realize that I was as unhappy as I was last year (until the end), but looking at how giddy and positive I am every day now, I am shocked to realize what I was missing last year. I feel as though I am getting back to my core self finally–that beautiful, happy, glowing Emilie that used to be such a shining ray of sunshine has re-arrived. I lost sight of her for a few years, but now she is back in full force and not going anywhere. True, I am not happy all of time, things and people irk me, and I am not perfect. But even when bad things happen and I am unhappy, I still have this deep-seated peace motivating my actions. I’d forgotten what inner peace was like. Sure I still fight with my brain sometimes, but my core? It is radiant.

–There are so many beautiful and wonderful and intriguing people in the world, and I am excited for meeting more of them every day.

–Six days until my birthday, and Google satellite view just showed me exactly where the Lacey DMV is. Isn’t technology neat?

 

Sincerely,

Emilie
