Today is my birthday and I have committed the rest of my life to happiness. I know happiness can’t be forced in just like mean winters can’t be forced out. But they can be entertained. Happiness can sit at my table and drink wine with me. It can remind me that nothing is lacking.
All the things I thought I needed to feel totally beautiful and amazing and happy are superfluous! Who knew!?
My plant is growing roots- I don’t need anything else in order to be happy.
That doesn’t mean I don’t want a heck of a lot of things!
I used to think that I can’t be happy if other people are suffering. That is a hard one to let go of! Especially if you flow indígena blood in your system. We tend to guilt too easily.
I can step back and say the world is beautiful as it is. It evolves at its own pace. And I am just fine with that.
I would much prefer to add happiness to the world than more lectures on what it should be or rants about what it’s not.
In letting go, I become lighter, happier, with much more energy to live my own dreams.
