Day Sixty: Growing

Nobody told me how good it was to grow up.  I thought it was all screaming babies, fighting with your spouse and paying bills.  I didn’t realize what I was missing out on.   I always thought that I was looking for some kind of quality in someone when it’s actually so much nicer finding people who make me feel good about myself.

He makes me smile.  I enjoy being around him and I feel safe to be myself.  I don’t have to play act and do certain steps to get at something.  I can just take things as they come and be happy about it.  I just never realized this before.  I seemed to be attracted to the kind of people who I saw presenting a certain image that I thought that I liked.  Now I see that good things are right in front of me – I just had to look.  I guess it’s a testament to me being a good enough person to attract good people and I am so happy about this.

I am not worried about what might be.  I don’t have questions about where this might go or what I should expect.  I am happy with what this is right now and I feel blessed to have experienced this.  I never imagined that feelings like this existed.  It’s like my eyes have been opened to a new light.  Perhaps it is maturity, perhaps it is simply growing into myself.  Whatever it may be, I am here to accept it and be thankful for it.
