“I will find what it means to be the girl who changed her mind and changed her world.” – Sugarland – Settlin’

One of the most important things I think I have learned in life is that if you compromise too much or settle for less than what you truly want you will end up needing more, if that makes sense.  As most of you know, I have labeled this as the year of learning.  So far, it has been full of all kinds of lessons and for the most part, I have been enjoying every minute of it.  Most people don’t know it, but I am a bit of a country girl at heart, which if you happen to follow me on Facebook, you would know that my new home and life have me out in the wide open spaces I love.  I remember that this used to be my dream; the home on the land with lots of work to be done; animals around and kids chopping and throwing wood for the Winter.  But for years, I made the decision to settle for less than I thought I wanted and definitely less than I deserved.  In this year of growth I made the decision that I would rather be alone that to settle again.  I was tired of just getting by and living life only half-way.  I wanted spontaneity, a home, someone to grow old with who was tired of arguing and fighting and just wanted to be a team; to be able to see a future instead of a never ending dark tunnel, I wanted to be HAPPY!  When I made that decision, I was quite surprised at how life rewarded me.  Sometimes I find myself staring at my partner, often making him a bit uncomfortable, and I realize I memorize every line on his face, how his eyes light up, and how quickly I can make him smile because I am afraid I am going to wake up and this will have all been some long, anesthesia induced dream during neck surgery.  He pinches the back of my arm lightly from time to time, and I am not sure who is making sure isn’t dreaming at that moment, but it always helps us both.  It’s strange how that happens when you are faced with something that seems a bit too good to be true, but every once in a while, the Universe gets it right, and it is just what it seems to be, YOUR idea of perfect!

Fifteen minutes left to throw me together
For mister right now, not mister forever
Don’t know why I even try when I know how it ends
Looking like another: “maybe we could be friends.”
I’ve been leaving it up to fate
It’s my life, so it’s mine to make
I ain’t settling for just getting by
I’ve had enough so-so for the rest of my life
Tired of shooting too low, so raise the bar high
Just enough ain’t enough this time
I ain’t settling for anything less than everything, yeah
With some good red wine and my brand new shoes
Gonna dance up a blue streak around my living room
Take a chance on love and try how it feels
With my heart wide open, now you know I will
Find what it means to be the girl
Changed her mind and changed her world
I ain’t settling for just getting by
I’ve had enough so-so for the rest of my life
Tired of shooting too low, so raise the bar high
Just enough ain’t enough this time
I ain’t settling for anything less than everything
