- Douglas Adams

Where I Needed to Be

I suspect your life, like mine, has included some very unexpected twists.  While I don’t believe in any divine purpose (at least not for me individually) I am satisfied that my life is taking me to a place I needed to be.  I am grateful for so much that I have had and experienced – wonderful family, great adventures…and also deep pain, health issues – ALL of it has combined to make me strong and ready to help others.

My husband and I both look back on our struggles and think that while it was really very ugly at times, we are both lucky.  And, we got to our era of happiness together – in spite of times when that seemed as if it would be impossible.  As a friend recently said, ‘what a great life you’ve crafted together!’

‘Crafted’ is a good word.  It took lots of effort on both our parts, in order to get ourselves to a place we wanted to be.  Often, that effort was sheer will of behaving as our ‘best selves’ even when we wanted to hurdle a brick at our partner’s head.

Have you grabbed the twists and turns of your life to craft the life you want?  Contributing your ‘best self’ to your relationship to get where you need to be?
