I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. – Agatha Christie
I love this Agatha Christie quote. Not only did the lady write the greatest mysteries the world has ever known (as her #1 fan, I may be a bit biased), she also had a great handle on life. Life is beautiful, even on the worst of days. Some people say they feel more alive than ever when they’re in the middle of a battle, while others claim the period just after a battle is the sweetest.
Personally? I feel more alive when things are calm and normal. When chaos ensues, I’m the proverbial chicken with its head cut off – running in circles, clucking, and looking a perfect fool. This girl wasn’t built for chaos. I’ll give chaos this, however, it does make lazy, calm, beautiful days like today feel thisclose to Heaven.
