I’m not sure what it is.  I don’t really know how it happened.  But as if all of a sudden, there seems to be this calming effect in my life…. a presence that makes things seem easier, and just all around more pleasant.

I guess you could say I’m feeling calm, and a little philosophical at the moment.  The every day grind of work can get tedious and stressful, and it constantly feels like a rat race.  The issues with the economy keep piling up, and although we have a new President-elect, I doubt the issues are going to subside anytime soon.  Not to mention the other little things that have the tendency to bring about added stress.  The holidays are creeping up, and it’s getting colder (at least where I am).

And despite all of that, I feel calm, happy… heck, even satisfied.  And I have someone to thank for that.  To thank for just being able to make me smile and realize that I don’t actually have to take myself seriously all the time.  And to thank for keeping the balance.

I met W online many moons ago, and we had an instant connection.  We could talk about anything and everything and there was no pressure to put on a performance for the other person.  I could just be myself, and it was good.  W and I had finally decided to meet and that chemistry transferred over, and I could still be myself.

I don’t know where things are going, or how they’re going to turn out, or what’s going to happen.  But I do not that I am very thankful for having W in my life right now. 

I’m a firm believer that people, friendships, relationships come and go, and you are destined to take something from each experience.  There’s no such thing as good or bad timing when it comes to experiences.  Something may seem like the perfect time or the wrong time, but in essence, the timing was destined to be the way it was.  Wrong place, wrong time?  Never.  I don’t think things like that exist, because, again, you were there for a reason and it helps shape who you are.  People can do that as well.  And you take what you were meant to take from them and give to them something that is going to shape their lives, their character, and your life and character.

What I guess I’m trying to say is that I’m happy that W came into my life when he did, and pleasantly surprised with the outcome, and I can only hope for more of the same and better from him.
