I don't know if this statement makes sense to anyone but me. However, it popped into my mind this weekend as I was thinking back to about 5 years ago when Edgar and I were both in school, living in an apartment on the 'wrong side of town', didn't have an extra dollar to spare, made a game out of eating everything in the kitchen cabinets before a return visit to the store and the weekend meant renting a video and splurging on some Ben & Jerry's.
Without a doubt, those days were some of our best.
In some ways life is very different now: we're in a house we love and we might have two dollars to spare :) However, making the decision to switch directions and follow my passion rather than the certainty of a regular paycheck has required us to cut back on some of the extras, or as I'm coming to realize, the distractions. Once again we're playing the food game (gumbo is a winner!) and oddly enough, once again, extra happiness is creeping in. It's strange and good, all rolled into one. I am home, present and thankful.
Have you had a similar experience? If so, I'd love to hear...
