Peanut Butter Philosophy

Written by Angela Atkinson

I have started re-writing this blog no less than five times, because each time it occurred to me that someone might be offended or misunderstand what I am trying to say. I think perhaps I’m still reeling from the rant that spewed forth from my keyboard yesterday.

I don’t regret it though. Life is too short for regrets, and sometimes we just have to spout it out. I do enjoy email forwards from time to time, and I don’t want anyone to think that I was directing the Obama rant at any certain person. Many people in my life, both from “real life” and from my “internet life” have posted or emailed me these things, and I guess I just decided I was done with it.

Alright then, now that that’s out of the way, I will move on to the real point of today’s blog. As I type this, my family’s dinner is simmering away on the stove. Earlier, while I was preparing it, I had this single, amazing thought.

I love my life.

WOW! If you’d have told me twenty years ago that one day I’d be a mother to three children who does what she loves while working from home, I’d have laughed in your face and politely explained that I would in fact be moving to Maine and writing on the beach. (Yes, even in the cold, I’d smile as I told you.)

Nonetheless, here I am, LOVING my life. I am certain that part of this zest I’ve developed has something to do with recent personal changes which have made my world a bit brighter, but I would say that it also has to do with the family with which I’ve been blessed, and the wonderful friends in my life.

What an amazing feeling, to love one’s life. I have to admit, it’s not always been so wonderful, but in hindsight…I’ll admit that it may have been my own fault. Perhaps because of the negativity in my head, my life was overshadowed.

No matter though, because now…now I get it. Thankfully…I get it.

Took me long enough. Haha.
