Sometimes we think we have to take the actual road to travel to amazing places.
I am on a quest to take the road less travelled…that one of an internal search to find meaning and fulfillment at this stage of my life.
I think I was not created to color my hair once a month, check the lines and wrinkles grow deeper and find out which cream will do the miracle. A waste of time and dinero. I have decided that I worked very hard for these lines and wrinkles and they are my badge of honor. Have to be positive about a losing battle.
I believe I have found maybe the way to find meaning and fulfillment in whatever stage I am now. I am not letting you in right at this moment about the way to accomplish such a monumental task, because I have to find out if this actually happens.
Travelling to different parts of the globe, shopping for nice clothing, items for your household is fun and somewhat of a therapy. But it is like running away from the real and genuine quest for contentment and fulfillment. If that’s what you are searching for at this moment in your journey. I am. I want to be able to be happy, content and at peace when I am doing absolutely nothing. Not even thinking or moving.
Stuff is just that, stuff. So I am looking for something intangible that will make me look beyond the stuff and lots of noise because I think I need to be busy and always doing something. That’s what my life is all about now, being busy doing things to fill my daily hours. I am ready for the next step in my life.
I am looking forward with much enthusiasm and anticipation to see what new meaning I can bring into my life. This is so exciting.
So…it was today, 15 April, 2012…taxman day…postponed until next Tuesday. The check is in the mail 😦
Your Happy Contessa

Good luck! I’m on a similar journey. Gotta appreciate the present instead of only focusing on the future/what comes next.
I am looking forward to this adventure.
I hope you find this journey to be a pleasant one (wherever you are going). May your bags be packed with peace of mind and a joy-filled heart. They both are light and easy to carry. But please, every now and then, stop in the physical NC for a hug, a moment shared, a cup of tea and a quiet whisper of the wind through the pines. The door is always open and waiting.
So beautifully written. Thanks…
