1. calm; peaceful; tranquil: halcyon weather.

2. rich; wealthy; prosperous: halcyon times of peace.

3. happy; joyful; carefree: halcyon days of youth.

Every time someone asks me how I am lately the answer that first leaps to mind is:

I am amazing.

I mean this not in my typical utter-lack-of-humility-please-realize-how-awesome-I-am-as-a-human-person sort of way, but rather that I have never before in all my life been so simply, profoundly, and systemically happy. 

So too, and at last, my days are full of radiant light. I wake to each morning with an satisfaction I have never before known. It is borne of feeling complete unto myself, enjoying the pleasure of my own company, and knowing that though all the plans I had spent so much effort creating and defending have fallen away, that limitless possibilities for unimagined joy are everywhere.


How fortunate I am to have come awake to this feeling, at long last.
