I cannot believe I'm writing about a balanced life. Me. Little miss all or nothing. My sister had tried for YEARS to get it through my head that balance is so important.
But alas, I have finally seen the light. In past years, I've been so focussed on getting the house and gardens to where I want them, that I've kinda forgotten about the important parts of life ... friends and family. And most important ... my hubby. Today (Monday) is the 18th anniversary of my first date with Barry. It was a wonderful night and he left at 7 a.m. Get your minds out of the gutter, nothing much happened ... we talked all night.
This summer, for the first time in years, we've somehow managed to balance friends, family, garden work and dealing with the unexpected. The latest is another minor flood in the basement bathroom. Water was coming in through the window. Barry's post chronicles our adventures.
This weekend, we had a girlfriend come for a visit Saturday and stay over until Sunday. Barry and I went to a strip club Sunday night (yes, they were female strippers). He was totally stoked. Me, I was a little bored with the stage show for the most part ... but there was this one dancer .... And then today we worked our hineys off shovelling rock into a 6 foot deep hole.
Something has happened to me lately. I'm not sure what it is. My outlook on life has changed. My attitude has changed. I have decided it's time to work past the fears, embrace my sexuality, enjoy it, live life large and as long as nobody gets hurt, be who I really am instead of trying to be someone I'm not.
I encourage you to look deep, get in touch with who you really are, and live life large. And don't apologize for who you are.
