Spring at heart

Life is good.

In fact, life is pretty great!

I can’t adequately express how weird it is for me to write those words. For one, the superstitious part of me has always been fearful that as soon as I admit I am happy, it will fizzle away. Secondly, I don’t know if I have ever written those words before. If you have been a reader of my blogs, I am sure the one thing that really comes through is melancholy. Happiness isn’t a feeling I have been particularly familiar with.

Until now, at least.

Since I am sneaking on at work, this will have to be brief.

Let it suffice to say that many things have changed, and all of them have been for the best.  I feel more confident, more excited, and more full of love than I ever have.

Sure, I still get grumpy. Sure, I still get blue.

But these things matter less and less, and the good parts of life are more and more obvious.

I can’t remember the last time I’ve ever been so excited to be alive, when I haven’t half hoped that I my heart would stop beating while I slept.

Life is good.

In fact, it is exceptional.
