The tide has turned and i wait for the other shoe to drop.
Mixed metaphors can be effective sometimes.
Life is good. Very good. So good that sometimes I don't know what to do with it.
The doctors and I have found a medical regimen that works for me, that takes away my pain almost completely. It is bizarre, I had almost surrendered to the pain. Taken it in and realized it as part of me, part of what I would have to deal with for the rest of my life. And now it is gone.
Secondly I have found a job I love, working for a non-profit and doing good in the world; something that I can see a measurable and obvious change, and I am surrounded by people trying to achieve it. Being immersed in optimism is incredibly good for me. Incredibly good. Its so nice to not be working to line some CEO's pockets.
I am at peace and I think it shows daily; the small problems that pop up are nothing in comparison to what I have walked through for a second time and I relish their small challenges.
I know joy again, i had almost forgot it existed. Thank you God.
