Happy, But Not Content

The weather is warmer and I can even get my trailer up to a decent temperature when I am home. I can even still have liquid water in my water jugs when I wake up (without taking extra measures). 

I even had to run my fridge today! (Woo hoo!)

All in all, things are okay, I am on track and I can see that I am making progress towards my overall goal of total debt freedom before the end of this year.

I know that the cold weather will return and yes, it is possible that I will see temperatures south of minus twenty again this winter.

None of that scares me, nor does it diminish my spirits, for I know that I can handle it; I know that I can weather anything. 

I also know that such a statement is tempting fate, but I will not let the cynic in me kill my confidence in myself. For I have endured too much to sell myself short again.  

Whatever does befall me, I will meet the challenge head on. I would even go so far as to say that I am happy with my life . . . happy that is, but not content. 

I have a number of things that I would like to accomplish and goals yet to be achieved. I will meet any target I set for myself (unless I move or change the target for reasons of my choosing.)

Yes, a partner on this journey and indeed life in general would make everything immensely better. (I said partner, not passenger or dead weight.)

There is that balance to be made between happiness with one’s life and contentment. Yet another balance is between confidence in one’s abilities and arrogance. 

I am trying to master a dual balancing act that I have not had to do in quite some time . . . and I like it, and indeed highly recommend it. 

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
