Sweet Spot

After bouncing around like a frantic roulette ball for most of my life, I have landed. Life has become a cycle of small pleasures. I wonder about the meaning. Why these people? Why this place? It doesn't really matter. This is it. I don't feel the need to get somewhere. I am here. Now I want to maixmize on what is here: organize a corner, learn a new skill, find a way to volunteer. As for whatever is in store for me, I am not afraid. I do want to be healthy as long as possible so I can be around in 10 years - 20? to see how my grandchildren have grown up. Small pleasures, small ambitions perhaps, but my joy and gratitude are large.


  1. As I age, this is what I'm enjoying too. Focusing on what is here, now, enjoying it, and feeling confident about whatever life brings. Taking pleasure in the simple things of our life means we don't need stimulation, entertainment and adventure outside of that. I like how you put that in your last line. Wonderful feeling!

  2. Oh, me, too. Small everyday pleasures and reasonable ambitions. I'm learning to be kind to myself. It feels nice.
