Are you happy?

There REALLY is something about "Mary"........ She makes me laugh, she makes me think, she makes me wander back to my past from time to time to remember how I got 'here'.... I think Mary is capable of doing that with all kinds of people.......


Come meet Mary  **Mary**  <~~~ Link


Mary made me ask myself this morning if I am Happy? I have to admit I am happy most of the time.....what makes me so fricken happy you ask? That I am content with who I am and my life......and being content makes me mostly happy. I think I got the raw end of the deal during my childhood and I am much to much of a warrior and/or a survivor to have that ever bring me down and keep me down....so from the age of 18 and on my life became better and better....It's a whole new world when you aren't living under the threat and actuality of a beating.....or when you no longer hear the words that tried to break you as a child.....I  also no longer hold this against my abuser, I learned later that this is how he felt about himself but he didn't want to be in pain all by himself.......so although I don't forgive him it made it easier to understand why things were the way things were.........knowing "why" things happen always give me some sort of peace and that helps me to let things go.


So I guess I am one of those 'happy people' and I'm "HAPPY" with that too! lol lol lol

You deserve every bit of happiness you have earned for yourself. Sniff. No, not a bit of plump raisin in the air, either.
