  • Nov 19 2012: I am pretty satisfied with my life. I am on the tail end of a VERY rough patch but things are settling down and I can't wait to get back to what I consider normal. Things I am satisfied with include, my state of employment: I am employed and able to pay my bills; my relationship: we are engaged to be married; my ability to travel: I will be visiting my family in a day, for a week; and the fact that my family is safe: they live in NYC and were barely affected by Super Storm Sandy.

    I think I am satisfied with my life because I am very thankful for everything that I have, it may not be much but I am grateful none the less.

    If I could change something, it would probably be what I am doing for work right now. I work at a law office as a legal assistant, and it's a job that I no longer find joy in doing. If I could do anything in the world for work, I'd travel and write about my experiences, or become a personal chef.

    I've given myself to life; I try to make the best decisions at the time choices are presented and just go with the flow. Ever since I've let go, things have fallen into place. It's only in the last couple of months that I've tried to steer every single thing that stuff has been going off tracks. I have to get back to listening to my intuition. When at a crossroads the best thing to do is to see where you are naturally being pulled. Keep in mind: coincidences are not.
