"I'm on top of the world"

Have you seen the movie The Incredible Burt Wonderstone?

I love that movie. I'm a huge fan of Jim Carey though. Oh and Steve Carrell. Laughter is fantastic for the soul. Right now, the song from the movie 'On top of the world' is summing me up so completely. It is amazing!

Anyway, as you all know, my hubby has been rather unwell with his mental health. He is making a fantastic recovery after being told he does not have Bi-Polar and just has depression. The medications were conflicting with each other, and dragging him down. But he is on the mend, and we have all noticed a massive turn around already.

However, the last month has been draining for me as well. Don't get me wrong. I know for a fact it has been much harder on him, and I am by no means trying to get sympathy for 'everything I have had to do'. Because, at the end of the day, I am his partner, and it is what partners do for each other.

Last Saturday, we got a new mattress delivered for our bed. Honestly, our old one, wow, it was rubbish. It had holes with springs poking through. No wonder we didn't get a very good sleep. Since sleeping on our new mattress, I have noticed a HUUUUUGE turn around in myself. Clearly, I was lacking some serious good sleep.

I was able to jump out of bed this morning. Yes, I literally mean jump! I swung my feet over the bed around 20 seconds after opening my eyes and bounced off the bed. I can't believe it! I haven't been this perky in... well, I don't remember! I am happy. Truly honestly happy. I can see the sunshine, I can hear the birds, and I can feel the sparkle in my eyes when I have an honest smile. I know it sounds cheesy, but it's true. I feel like 'I'm on top of the world".  I feel like I can take on anything. I am finally feeling like myself again.

I hope everyone has a truly magical day!
