It's something I always strive for. A place in my heart, mind and soul that feels calm, peaceful and is full of gratitude.
It can apply to things big and small, hardships and good times.
When do you know you've reached it? I think it's when you can look back and go Holy Shit! What a ride.
When you can say, I wouldn't change that experience for anything. The experience becomes a part of who you are: wiser, tougher, smarter, stronger, happier for it.
I'm writing one of my last chapters on acceptance of Ryan's death. There wasn't a specific day I woke up knowing I would be okay, it was a culmination of multiple events. Thank you to all of my friends, family, dogs and events that helped me create a little more acceptance every day. I am so grateful for each of you. Thank you.
Next up: CELEBRATION!!!!
