Today was a day of great satisfaction. Much writing done. And editing The Document with fresh eyes. There is something wholly satisfying about knowing you are on schedule to complete a task within a timeline. It took me some time to get to this stage. I used to try to rush through everything, like life was a great race to the finish line. I’ve slowed down a bit and can be happy with knowing that things are progressing according to plan.
Later visiting with friends over some drinks and dinner. Laughter and joy. Being able to decompress all our individual stresses and realize we are not alone. Pick ourselves up, carry on. Smile. Take pleasure in the simpleness of the now.
Still later wine and visits with old friends. A few minutes sitting with my daughter, watching her fall off to sleep, giving her the security of my presence to help her through this rough patch.
Tonight is a night when I am content. I can sit in the calm quiet of a fruitful week. This truly is happiness.
