I realized something tonight... it's all good. This is a phrase I use quite often, but more out of habit than anything else. I never really stop to think about what it means. But tonight, as I was getting ready for bed- or contemplating getting ready for bed, rather- I just had a feeling of peace. No real reason for it. It was just a good feeling. Almost like a little sigh... a good vibe passing through, if you will. But it stuck with me. Life is alright right now. I have an amazing family, good friends, an awesome job... and the feeling that even more good things are coming my way. This is weird for me, because everyone who knows me knows that I am much more a "realist" than anything else. I've been through some rough times, especially during the past few years. Peace isn't a feeling that I've been terribly used to. I've learned to hope for the best but expect the worst. Which is fine. I mean, it works. But I think I could get used to this new hopeful feeling. Maybe it's not such a bad thing to hope for the best and-GASP- also expect the best. I feel like I'm definitely willing to at least give it a shot.
