Is it just my age?

Water Lily

This seems to be the question that I’m asking my self much more. I seem to have hit the age where although I’m happy with life – I have a wonderful loving partner who is also my best friend, a son who is wonderful most of the time (the 8 hours whilst he’s asleep) and a business I love. I also have a house, garden and allotment which are my sanctuary as well as a irreplaceable set of friends and family who are always there when I need them. But it never seems to fall into place just right. There’s always the ‘it will come good tomorrow’ or as a friend calls it ‘jam tomorrow’.

In my quest to analyze this feeling and find out what lies underneath it I typed ‘how to be happy’ into Google. One of the answers was this link: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/lifestyle/7686675/How-to-be-happy.html It made very interesting reading. Perhaps it’s a normal for women my age! But why?

The Happiness Project: Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun

So I’ve bought the book and I’m reading it and finding the content is something that I can definitely identify with. It’s also giving me ideas of things to do and different perspectives on things.

Over the next few months whilst I ponder the ‘is this it?’ question I’m going to change the blog – there will be more instant, short posts, info about oils and blends I’m working with and hopefully insights from other people

Help me on my quest by adding comments, insights, articles and interesting links to blogs etc. If you have books that you feel will help in my quest – suggest them and perhaps we can get some discussion going!

 I want to be the woman that when my feet hit the ground each morning the devil says, “OH CRAP, SHE’S UP”!
