I think so too. I appreciate you for saying this. I have so many people who constantly tell me they’re “concerned” for me and I “should be” doing this and I “should be” doing that. I feel strongly that what I should be doing is living by my standards and not the standards of others. I’m not going to feel like a disappointment because I’m not living up to someone else’s expectation.

Reading your words and how you described it, my life sounds heavenly and for that I am grateful.
