Sometimes I like to reconstruct my life like a crime scene, minus the chalk outline, to piece together my own journey and see the progressive. Amazingly enough, I am pretty inspired by the accomplishments and know there is so much more that lies in wait for me. You know, I am no longer afraid to be happy. I used to hold my breath when life was cruising along with the smoothness of a newly paved road. At ever corner, I was looking for where trouble was hiding. At some point, I realized that I wasn’t actually enjoying my happiness if I was looking for the unhappy portion of the programming.
A process that has brought me an abundance of awareness is the ability of self-accountability. No happiness can be found without it. Knowing that blaming others will not change my circumstances nor will it make me happy. If anything, it just breeds more toxicity within myself. Another tidbit of wisdom that I have acquired is that I no longer want someone else’s life to be mine. It is so easy to want what someone else has when you aren’t living the life you deserve to live. I think it is better to live your own life imperfectly, then to live an imitation of someone else’s life to perfection. Now before you think that my words are so profound, they are not mine. Not sure who said it, but it was something that resonated within me.
Waiting for happiness is a weak state of existence . Be on a quest for that joyful feeling. Challenge yourself to find something beautiful each day that brings you gratitude. Ask yourself questions about what you want to experience differently in your life. You are in charge. You are the master of your own destiny. You can’t wait for happiness. Happiness isn’t a destination. It is the satisfaction of being blissful in your own skin.
