Tickled Pink Tuesday

DSC03160    1

I had a hard time figuring out what to write about tonight.  Nothing has really "tickled" me; I have instead a deep and wide feeling of contentment.  I just finished a big [for me] job and although I can't blog it, it's filling me with the satisfaction that only comes from a job that's been difficult but has also been well done.

Too, I'm feeling reflective tonight.  No, not like shiny-brite - not that kind of reflective.  The kind where you look at your life and try to figure out what direction you're moving in, or whether you're standing still.  Which also fills me with contentment, just to look. 

It's a good life.  A sweet, happy life.  With all the trials and drama of a cheap novel - but still happy.  Still sweet.  It's a choice, I think, to make it happy. 

I'm glad I made that choice. 

Join Cheryl and I in telling what's tickling you today...

I agree, it is a choice. Sometimes it is a hard choice, but we can convince our inner self at times to be content and happy.

You can't put a price on contentment...It is a choice to be a half glass full or half glass empty person. I guess if we didn't have our little trials we wouldn't appreciate all the blessings we also have. I love your full moon shot. Gorgeous!

I believe we can choose how we react to life, which in turns chooses, essentially, how we feel. I know I'm blessed, even in the darkest hours.

The moon looks pink in your photo - ha ha.

Love your cousin's wedding - looks like way too much fun to be legal. Especially the idea of a photo booth. And pink flowers definitely suit you!

Not a cheap novel, Allie, but a life nourished and nurtured by the power of God in your every day moments...you chose to make the best choice. :-)

It is a choice Allie. Some days lately I can't seem to pull myself up enough to make that choice though. :0/

I love this post, Allie. It's exactly what I needed to start my day. Thank you (and the photo was somehow just perfect for it). Always glad I stopped by...

Loralynn said...

What a nice post. Would that we could all feel the same. I'm very happy for you...it's quite an achievement to feel content. :-)

What a lovely post! I so agree that being happy is a choice and focusing on the positive things in our lives. My mother used to say "some people can't be happy at Disneyland" - LOL

That's a nice capture of the moon you caught there too.

I love contentment as well, but my friend thinks it means I have no dreams left.....giggle.

Nope content right here until the next shiny step is illuminated (probably msp)

Love the drama of a cheap novel...LOL...you made me laugh.

Ivory Spring said...

Sweet post, Allie! I always admire your cheery outlook on life.

Michelle said...

I agree, being happy is a choice. And contentment is often vastly under-rated.

Talin's Corner said...

Oh Allie, your post is so refreshing! I am glad to hear that you are happy and that you are right where you would like to be.

Val said...

Life is about choices. You are so right. I love this post. I feel the peace in it as I read it. We can't always share what we deal with but we all know we face things. You are so right. It is a choice. I feel the peace and contentment in this post.

Cheryl said...

A great choice....an Allie Oops Sweet Happy Life choice! Very sweet post Allie!

Martha said...

I really admire you, Allie. You always manage to see the bright side. I tend to be a more "glass half empty" person, but I'm trying to be more positive.

Lyn said...

Hello Allie,thankyou for your reflections...Hugs Lyn

Val said...

Glad to hear you are feeling contented. I am a great believer in choosing to be happy and busy. Funny to think I see the same moon as you :)
