I discovered the secret to my happiness. Maximize God’s presence, minimize the drama and sprinkle heavily with all kinds of love from true love to sisterly bonds. I am happy! Really happy! Happier than I have been in a long time. Four more days and it will be 365 days since my hunny and I got together. I am deliriously happy. There are still struggles but at my core, I am beyond content. My nearest and dearest are still in my heart but I opened myself up to form a new lasting bond and I don’t regret it. This friendship is like no other. It is one I wish I could have had nine years ago but I’m so grateful to be able to provide it to someone else now. We talk about almost everything. ‘Almost’ because I never want to be a stumbling block to someone else’s walk with Christ. But I’m so grateful for my newly formed bond. It brings me new joy and makes me look at life differently. It makes me appreciate music in all of its form. It makes me appreciate people who are well-rounded instead of one-dimensional. It gives me insights into things that I would otherwise not know about. And it makes me happy! A lot happier than I have been in a very long time. I’m grateful to God for this development in my life and I hope I remain this happy, forever after.
