Beautiful Monday running, while listening to a beautiful album by James Blunt, Back to Bedlam from 2004.  I was around 38 back then.  If I had to choose an age I wanted to be again, it would be 38, and it’s no coincidence that this is such a beautiful album from that time too.  At 38, I could finally see that.. yeah, it all turns out ok in the end.  I had enough experience behind me and enough hope in front of me.  I had learned how to forgive, including myself, and I learned how to let go.  I realized it’s ok not to be skinny.  In fact, confidence is much prettier than skinny.  I could see how God had never left me, and I was a little ashamed of myself for those times when I didn’t recognize it.  I discovered I could do much more than I ever thought; in actuality, we all can!  And I was finally, truly happy; content.  Your “38” may come sooner or later, but you will discover it too.
