On Top Of The World...

Every once in a while, I have one of those days where EVERYTHING is sharp and clear in my mind and my senses...today was one of those days. I look around me and all I can see is the world unfolding itself like a wonderful flower and I feel on top of the world!

I don't know if it's a hormonal shift (because God knows, when the "mones" rage, the world can look pretty grim), a good night's sleep, the weather, or Mercury NOT running retrograde...whatever the cause, I absolutely LOVE this kind of day. Yes, it's true...I did NOT have to go to work today (scheduled day off). LOL But even on days off, I often don't have this "in tune" sensation...and even days at work, I sometimes GET it...go figure!


Colors appear brighter to me...smells seem more aromatic...I have enough energy and little fatigue...and the world just looks and feels like a wonderful place to be. Someone jokingly suggested perhaps it is a brain tumor or seizure disorder. LOL Always a cynic in the crowd...


On days like today, I am acutely reminded and aware of the many blessings that surround my life in spite of having Multiple Sclerosis. Good friends, good weather, a nice home, the ability to walk, a good job, running water...the list goes on and on. Problems that I turn over and over in my head on other days seem trivial and finding answers and peace become the "norm". I have had a much needed peaceful and relaxing day, in spite of myself. LOL


What I have come to KNOW and understand in my 42 (almost 43, but who's counting after 40?!?) years on this earth is this: Neither peace nor strife will last forever in my life and I must seize (there's that "seizure disorder" again) the moments of peace and run with them until I can run no more. Or, in the words I once read on an overpass in Spanaway, Washington, while driving home from a most excellent day at Mount Rainier..."Ride It Like You Stole It".


So today, I'm riding this "top of the world" feeling like I stole it...because tomorrow, I could be arrested for theft...LOL...

Yes, I DO have many blessings here...I imagine there are a few in Maine, too. But since I've never been there, I'm no expert. LOL

TO THE WHOLE LOT OF ALL Y'ALL:

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PU LEEZE!!!! Since I document my every FART here on BrainCheese, believe me, you'd be the first to know if there were ANY kind of love interest in my life besides "self love"...LMAO

But I am flattered y'all still have hope I COULD find a love interest...seriously...LOL
