I personally think “Happiness” can be a rather loaded word for many (actually everyone if we are being honest). As a therapist, I often hear, “I just want to be HAPPY!”
Well, might I suggest the following as my hope for you (and ya know, the world at large):
Today may you travel in peace, perhaps finding “moments” of joy and noticing what makes you feel content and also honor what does not.
Simply observe the bumps along the way as an equally important, albeit more challenging part of this unpredictable and sometimes crazy journey we call life.
“Happiness is fleeting, it comes in moments…in fits and starts. It ebbs and flows. Happiness can be observed gently along the way through all the other equally important and interconnected parts, no matter how dark and jagged some of those parts may be, ultimately they may all fit together”
So, today, might you do me (and yourself) a favor? I will also try to do the same.
Embrace your travels on this day, wherever they may take you. And perhaps, try not to get overly hung up on being “HAPPY”, maybe, just “BE” and let’s see what you notice on today’s path…sometimes even through the gravel, rocks and mud, you just might find a beautiful flower or that “perfect” stone…you know, that perfectly smooth rock to keep in your pocket and maybe even take a Sharpie to it and write the words “Happy Moment” or even just “Damn Good Rock” I mean SHIT, just write whatever feels relevant because it’s YOUR JOURNEY and it’s your damn rock!
PEACEFUL TRAVELING FRIENDS…
