The Couch

I miss this. For some reason, I just found myself thinking of it this afternoon. I know it is just a couch, but it used to be my comfort zone. Yeah, while I do not watch a lot of TV, I do tend to spend a lot of time settled in comfy furniture. And boy, was this couch the epitome of comfort! It may not be leather (but that also means I do not have to worry about leather sofa repair), but that cloth feels really good. :)

In the recent years, I have been without a place of my own. That may not be a big deal for some, but for someone who left her parents' house at the age of 15 and having to temporarily stay with them again more than a decade later, it is quite a struggle. I am not complaining, really, but I cannot ignore the fact that I do long for a space of my own.


It is not like I cannot afford to rent a place. It's just that I need to give myself time to see how life unfolds before I make any major decisions.  Don't get me wrong. I am in the best state I have been in since last year ended. Still, I am learning many lessons that I thought I had learned. (Patience ring a bell?)

I am a little low on energy today, hence this introspective rambling, but I am very thankful for the wonderful weekend I just had. I can't help thinking about the past months when I felt like flotsam. Today, I may not have my own comfy couch to plop down into whenever I want to. I may not have everything that I want. But at the end of the day, I believe that my prayers are being answered one step at a time.
