Musings about the merry go round called living. I'd rather be dizzy from adventure then paralyzed with uncertainty or worse-boredom. When I fall down?
I do my best to spin again.

"Only the bad things in life disappear. The good things in life keep building and compounding. Try to remember the worst thing that happened to you 5 years ago. Then try to think of all the good things that have improved over the past 5 years." —a friend commenting on my tumblr post last week about leaving my garden behind. 
I took his challenge and I came up with a ton of good things and just three bad things. Two of the bad things are inevitable because we are mortal beings. 

—sad things—
my mother died
my father died
the end of my long term primary relationship

—Fabulous things—
financial stability
boys are out of the house
India
Cambodia
7 trips to Mexico
Fell in love with gardening
Fell in love with cycling
Fell in love with myself
I became the girl who gets flowers
