We take life day by day, some are better than others, some days you just accept life as it is, maybe too much monotony and we lack color, wishing we could just sleep through the misfortunes; other days life surprises you. Without the difficulties we wouldn’t appreciate the too good to be true moments, which not to brag but lately I’ve gotten many of the latter.
This year has been such a rollercoaster and just when I was starting to feel like there were more downs than ups, it has been hard accepting that life can be this good, this effortless. Maybe we stop expecting too much, maybe we learn to enjoy it with our limitations or maybe it’s part of maturing and accepting that we can’t just press a button to ease us into reality.
People who know me well know that I’m a true lover of simplicity; a beautiful sunset (truly though, i plan my vacations based on when the sun sets), a Sunday morning next to my favorite person (even if it means not getting out of bed the whole day), coming home to Maya and her jumping ass (she’s getting too old to jump as much as she used to but still manages to surprise me from time to time), a good tequila or dinner with loved ones (a gin or glass of wine also apply). Life is so simple and soooo damn magical and I know it sounds like a cliché but I am truly grateful. It feels good to be getting older and seeing that life truly falls in the right place at the right time even with all of its contradictions.
