Utopia

Utopia is something I could only dream about... With so many daily responsibilities it is pretty easy for me to just spend the few moments a day I have to myself daydreaming about what I wish I could have. I wish so many things, things that I know I cannot have right now, but it's nice for a moment to step out of my routine and just fantasize about my life as if it were a fairy tale.

In my fairy tale, I would have my husband living with me and the children again, and all the feelings we had at the beginning would still be very much alive in us. That blissful stage when we didn't even know what the weather was like outside because we had been lying in bed cuddling for the entire weekend. A time when our differences were the very things that made us more attracted to each other. And there wasn't anyone or anything that could break that bond that we felt.

Of coarse in my Utopia, all of my family and friends would see me as I see myself. They would love me for all the things that I am. They would look upon my compassionate lifestyle as something wonderful and they would support me in all I do. They would see all of my efforts to do the best I can for my children and be proud of the mother I have become.

It would be perfect to be close to my best friend and raise our children together. To create an environment for the children where they are not the only ones living a compassionate lifestyle. Where they would have each other to lean on, the way my best friend and I do when we need a safe place to release everyday buildup. A safety zone for all of us. That would be my Utopia.
