Day 8: Discuss a moment when you felt most satisfied with your life.

I know I’ve got something for this.

Ok, I’m back. Gratuitous Road to El Dorado gifs aside, I am beginning to question my choice of this particular blog challenge. When I initially picked it, I liked the variety and thought that it would be easy to write the different posts because the main topic is yours truly. Who knows me better than myself, right?

Can I just side eye myself right now…?

When I was brainstorming what to write for this post, my first thought was that satisfaction comes from a job well done, an achievement of sorts, if you will. I performed a quick brain scan and thought of my various accomplishments, and nothing really stood out to me. My biggest personal achievement to date would be graduating from college, but I was so exhausted and dehydrated at commencement that I looked hungover in my pictures. All I could think at that point was, “Thank God it’s over!”

I should probably pick my wedding day or something else cliche, but honestly, as much as I loved our wedding day, it wasn’t the end all be all of my life. (My husband agrees with me on that.) Seriously, I’ve got nothing on this, but I can paint a scenario where I imagine I could be most satisfied.

There should be a comfortable couch that is worn in and does not push my head out of alignment when I slouch on it. I would be stretched out, my feet in my husband’s lap as he sits on the opposite end of the couch. There will be throw pillows and blankets and a warm beverage in a pretty mug–lapsang souchong or coffee or cinnamon-spiced hot chocolate. We will have just finished a big Saturday brunch of pancakes, bacon, and scrambled eggs. One of the cats is curled up on my lap, purring to beat the band, while the other is draped lazily across the back of the sofa. My husband is reading. I am reading. We occasionally pause to discuss a point or share a humorous section from our books. While I’m at it, let’s imagine a fireplace. Maybe there’s a gentle rain falling outside and hitting the windowpanes. Yeah, that would be a satisfactory moment. 🙂

What about you? Can you answer this prompt any better than I can?
