More thoughts on contentment

Getting married and then settling down again after all this law school jive and adopting a dog has been one crazy thing after another but last night I had the strange revelation that my real life is actually starting to resemble the one that I always hoped for. I came home yesterday afternoon from a job that I don't hate too bad, rode bikes in the park with my wife, took our dog for a walk, cleaned a bit, settled down to read The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, and thought: This is what I've been looking forward to all my life. Here is where I want to be. I have arrived.

In other words, I'm growing up.

And I'm happy. I like the way that my life is going, despite (or because of) the fact that there are so many great things I still want to accomplish. I'm looking forward to the future. You're welcome if you want to join me.

Sounds delightful -- it's so nice to have the ability to *recognize* these times when we have them, you know? I look forward to joining you via blog.

My friends used to say with horror, "You're such a grown-up." I always thought it would be scary. But it's not so bad, is it? :)
