Every day for the past 5 or so years I've felt waves of overwhelming bliss and excitement - a side effect that takes a bit of getting used to, that no one tells you about when you #overcomedepression. The excitement always felt like I was just about to have a breakthrough, that something big was just around the corner.
Today my son @cmiley24 picked me up, drove me around some sights and treated me to lunch and dinner because it's probably my last weekend in Auckland. As of this minute I have $3.70 to my name, no car and only the occasional driving shift so, unless a miracle happens in the next few days, I have to go back home to my parents caravan this weekend.
BUT. Despite all this, I was surprised to find I still felt teary with bliss and anticipation.
Do you see how significant this is?! Suddenly I realised the material world no longer had any impact on my sense of wellbeing and contentment.
In other words, it doesn't matter whether I'm in New Plymouth or New York, homeless or in a hotel, with friends or friendless, I will still be profoundly happy.
Pimp My Attitude
This is where I think out loud as I transform my appearance, thought processes and most of all, attitude - no matter how unpretty.
