Happiness is: the Rainbow Wedge

I have blue nail polish.  BLUE.

The Serene of two years ago, or even one year ago would never have worn blue nail polish.  She didn’t think she was cool enough.  She didn’t think she could pull it off.

She also didn’t think she could “pull off”:

  • skinny jeans
  • above-the-knee hemline
  • purple lipstick
  • curly hair
  • flirting with strangers with no expectations
  • tangerine

But Serene has pulled all of these off in recent times, and more!

What a world of difference a little bit of time makes.  I have found my happiness, finally.

I cant explain how, or why, or what I am particularly happy about, but I am.  I’ve opened my eyes and looked around, I’ve observed how lucky I am, and accepted that whether or not I feel I deserve my blessings, I have them and I should appreciate and cherish them. There could be no greater compliment to the bestower of a gift than to have the recipient show true appreciation.

This single gal is just living her life and enjoying it.

I am sucking up all the goodness that this world has to offer, until the gooey warmth oozes down to the pit of my belly to comfort me from the inside-out.

It hasn’t been an easy journey, and I’m sure there are more ebbs and flows to experience in the future.

But I’m ready.

….and in the meantime, I’ll express my contentment with spectacular shoes, courtesy of Carmen Steffens.
