Do You forget how to be HAPPY? Has the waiting for a dream taken longer than expected? Have years of disappointments caused You to Settle for Second Best? If so, let’s explore this word HAPPY together.
The past 15 years of my life have been up and down. I tried with every ounce of energy in me to be HAPPY, however, honestly I did fake it most of the time. Every single day seemed like a Year. Every betrayal cut like a knife. Every goal not reached I felt like a failure. The word HAPPY took on a whole new form in my brain. I began to Forget what it felt like, this was very scary.
When we choose to put expectations into our life it keeps the seed of HOPE alive. At times because I was not Happy I lost my Hope. However, Hope and Happiness are 2 totally different subjects. We have a habit of combining the 2, which is wrong. Losing Hope is a scary place to live.
Many people pretend to be HAPPY. The mask is worn every single day. They respond to the question: “Hi, how are You?”, with “I am great, how are You”. But when they get alone with themselves the cloud of despair hovers over them day and night. To me this is the raw fact of being unhappy. But at least when they are alone they can BE THEIR REAL SELF AND NOT FAKE to me that is Happiness. Being Fake day after day is painful. For some reason we do not want to be honest, if just to one person, about HOW WE ARE DOING.
To live a life on this planet without experiencing one day with being HAPPY seems a waste. The question remains: Do You and I want to waste our existence for however long we are here? Without hesitation I would say NO.
After spending a few weeks thinking about this subject, I have decided to explore the Words “Hope and Happy”.
Of course, I would like to separate them, even though I do feel they belong together. I choose to Believe I am not an accident and there is reason for my existence. I suggest each of us has a purpose, no one is an accident. This is a question each of us needs to ponder. This question can change the course of Your life and determine if You live with an attitude of adventure and face life with an edge of HOPE. If You have chosen there is a reason for You too, why not explore, be a seeker of Happiness. The more You Seek, the more You will Find.
A warning: Do not put expectations on Others, they are Just like You, SURPRISE, so if You think another individual can be YOUR HOPE OR YOUR HAPPINESS aaahhhhh Wrong. You will set Yourself up for utter disappointment.
My choice has been to have a limited few loyal friends and a relationship with God, not a BUILDING. There is a difference…..So meditation, prayer and such for me. Best wishes in Your Journey My Friends.
