A Safe Harbour.

These days, my entire being is consumed by feelings of unfamiliar content. A certain kind of absolute happiness, which I yet have to adequately grasp, in order to precisely define, as it is so unknown to my perception.

I have been happy before, but NEVER like this.

The emotions that consume me are so very difficult to convey - however I feel that I am exactly at the right place with the right person.
I have never felt so much at home.
Nor have I ever before made anyone feel exactly the same way in return.

A realization occurred to me recently.

A notion that life does progress in stages.
It is my belief that we need to complete each stage in the order it is presented to us. We can not bypass any predicaments, however painful and unfair they might appear and we can not escape that which is predestined.
Today I understand the there is a master plan behind every event, even those that leave us in bitter tears and despair. As when we endure those times, we will encounter occurrences that surpass everything we have ever known.
We will enter a place in time and space that defies that which we comprehend and we will experience unforgettable moments. Those that leave us breathless and reinforce our belief in the magical and enchanting.
In the spiritual and in the divine.

These days my life seems altered.
As if it has been redefined in a novel way. The pieces finally fit and everything around me seems brighter. The sunshine, the skies, the vernal bloom. Even the faces of strangers. My senses are heightened and my perception transformed.  My whole being feels like an intricate and delicate clockwork, one that has been still and silent for what seems like an eternity and which has suddenly started to function and move because the right hands have mended it.

All those journeys that I have undertaken, many in raging storms and hostile seas, seem so removed from my perception as I have sailed into a safe harbour.
For the first time in my adult life I experience a strong urge to drop anchors - for extended period of time.

Perhaps - finally - for good.

Oh... what a lovely lovely post! I couldn't agree with you more about stages in life. I am just so so happy to read that the pieces are falling into place for you! This is a good moment!
Many more blessings dear lady with the beautiful name!

PS So sorry to hear that Batcat isn't too well. Hope that he is soon back to normal! Edward is doing great, thank you! Able to jump up onto the counters now which makes us smile in appreciation of his health but cringe as our nice fish dinner had to be donated to the cats outside last night (not for Edward - he's on a special diet)!
So neat about the St. Nicholas Spring! Looking forward to hearing what you find!

Hilary said...

Wonderful! All round!

Naturally it's wonderful, that you feel this marvelous, at any time in your life. But all the more so, when quite recently, you were feeling the very opposite.

I-am-so-very-happy-for-you...

Gentle hugs,

I am happy for you! I too believe that life is for learning certain lessons, you can put some of them off, but you can not avoid them. I hope you continue to have happy ones.

When someone is experiencing some pleasant moment, a friend can't help but feel happy as well; especially so when it happens to someone who deserves it more than anyone in the whole world.
have a great day my friend!

sprinkles said...

I wish I could be that blissfully happy. Unfortunately, I've always known that love wasn't in the cards for me. I'm thrilled that it's worked out so well for you though.

SandyCarlson said...

How life unfolds is as much mystery as it is magic, I think. Wonderful stuff. I am happy that you are happy.

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

when I was looking for a house and had seen 40 of them, a woman I worked with said when you find the right house you will know it and you won't have to explain why, you will just love it.
That is what I remember when I feel I am in the right place, at the right time. You found your house, make it your home

Holly said...

Lately when I read your posts I feel as if I am reading a Jane Austin novel. They make me almost giddy because I can sense your giddyness, contentment, and even relief within them. I am SOOO ELATED for you that you are truly happy right now. You really deserve this time to soak in all of the positive emotions. To bask in them even. If you do drop anchor anytime soon, I will be there to cheer for you!

The images are stunning!!!

Cottage Garden said...

Oh Zuzana, I tried to leave a message the other day but Blogger was having none of it!! So I'm sorry this comment is late.

I'm so happy for you - it sounds like love to me! Your happiness is jumping off the page. It can be a once in a lifetime feeling when all the pieces fit together and it feels, well, just right. Enjoy, my dear friend. You deserve every happiness!

Love

Zuzana said...

Rajesh, Susan, Elizabeth, Alberto, Ann, Hilary, LadyCat, Julie, Angela, Amelia, Kat, Deborah, Darla, Kath, Bhushavali, Claudia, ladyfi, Dan, Brian, Lady, Laura, Betsy, Margie, Sia Jane, adrielle, Jill, sprinkles, Sandy, Zuzu, Gypsy, Myriam, Holly, Jeanne, Stevie, P and Sumandebray – oh thank you my very dear friends for your kind words and for expressing your candid joy about my current state of mind.

I am so delighted that I can share with you my happiness, as indeed when we are in a place of peace and comfort and when we feel everything has fallen into place, we want to share our experiences with the world.

I feel I want to share my joy with all of you, as the road leading to my safe harbour has been long and full of obstacles.
Arriving at last makes me believe in happy endings.
And in the beauty of life.

Thank you all as always for your continued interest in my writing, your visits mean more than I can ever adequately express in words,

Xoxo
Zuzana
