I'd probably start the conversation by complaining about being in Atlanta this week for work. I'm used to working from home in my pajamas and not expending a lot of energy to talk to people. I usually don't have a commute and don't have to do much to get ready for work so I always get less sleep when I'm here. And most of all, I miss Pearson and Pip. I miss my home.
But then I'd follow up and say that I really shouldn't complain because I get to come home and spend time with my family and see all my friends I left behind when we moved. I get to drive a fancy rental car and reconnect with my coworkers. And work pays for all of it. It's really a sweet deal!
I'd tell you that Pearson and I have lived with one car for almost two months now. This means that Pearson drives our car to work and I am quite literally stuck at home all day because he doesn't get home till 10 pm on average.
But then I'd say that I was being a brat and that I really am thankful for our one car and all the other material things we have that we really don't need!
I'd tell you that I am so glad spring is here but it's hard to know how to dress for this weather. Do I need a coat? Can I still wear boots? Is this sweater too heavy for March? But I'm gonna stop complaining because I think Columbus heard me. It snowed there last night. I'm sorry!!
However, I'd tell you that I am so loving every season of life right now. The other day Pearson said "Can you believe we're almost done with March? Soon it will be Easter. Then the Fourth of July. Then Labor Day. Then Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas and we'll start all over." And I couldn't help but think about how excited I am for all of those things. I didn't always look forward to all the holidays of the year. But I am really happy with my life right now. Even the "boring" times of the year when nothing much happens. Namely winter time after Christmas. Even that is fun right now. My birthday, Pearson's birthday and Valentine's Day were all fantastic this year! If you know me, you know that's not always the case.
I'd tell you how grateful I am that I love my life so much right now and I'd ask you if you are as happy as I am. If not, make changes. You deserve to be happy. Forget your past. God has, after all. Start making plans for your future and present that include things and people who make you happy.
What would you add to our conversation?
