contentment / peace


I found this quote tonight: “When you can think of yesterday without regret and tomorrow without fear, you are near contentment.” A state of happiness and satisfaction - to be at peace with our decisions, to know you're moving in the right direction, not wishing for something more or something different - in the end to be able to say "life is good" just the way it is - that's contentment, right? I want to always be able to say, "Life is Good" like the sticker I have on my car and T has on her car. / i miss my kirby. i don't really need a car at school so much but something about having him here gives me a sense of security. (the day i had to go back to school kirby wouldn't start). i hope he's being fixed.
