Someone on one of my quilting groups brought this up last week. Are you happy? Is your life a good life? Are you in the place you thought you would be at this stage of your life?
I have a small plaque in my kitchen that says, “Happiness is wanting what you have.” I would say that I am fairly happy. The things and people in my life are quite satisfactory. Probably the only thing I would change is that I would like to have a male companion with whom I could share my golden years. There are times, however, when I realize that I’m actually very lucky not to have anyone. Relationships require a lot of work and, after so many years of being single, I’m not sure I’m equipped for romance. Might be fun to try, though. In the meanwhile, I’m content with my life. I’m not rich, I’m not famous, and I’m not the toast of the town, but I am happy. How about you?
