This week I'm grateful for... mundanity
When I was younger I used to shy away from routine and what I perceived to be a boring life. I would do anything to avoid conformity and frowned upon anything I considered to be 'establishment'. I'm a reckless, challenging person at the best of times but there was a patch in my life there where I felt out of control and I thought I loved it.
How wrong I was.
A quiet family life has brought me more happiness than I ever could have mustered as a young punk. My life is fun, funny, interesting, satisfying and rich. It's the same old me, but with a new level of maturity and an appreciation for what some people know from a much earlier age than I: being proud of your lot and content within it are two of the keys to great happiness.
So, this week I'm grateful for...
1. Mundanity - not the profanity I always expected it was. There is loud joy in quiet contentment.
2. Flowers - and the beautiful bearer of them.
3. Sparkle shoes - you make my youngest daughter dance.
