Life is a journey – and I have learned that one of the most important aspects of that journey is to keep moving! As I look back on my journey, I realize that for much of my life I have felt stuck. Circumstances have often entangled me to the point I couldn’t even begin to see how to move forward. Feelings of loneliness, despair, isolation, hopelessness are not unique to me; we have all experienced some of those feelings along the way, sometimes causing us to be paralyzed.
I really didn’t know there could be another way – that the happiness I really wanted wasn’t an elusive unicorn that only a few chosen ones could attain. I discovered that there is hope to experience so much more. Happiness is attainable and can be more than we understand it to be. Our circumstances don’t have to dictate the happiness we experience.
We only have one amazing life … what are we going to do with it? Waiting for circumstances to change – more money, our kids to graduate, a better career – is often a waste of precious time.
Looking for things to be grateful for, expressing gratitude and celebrating (even the small things) can really change things for us! And we can LIVE this amazing life.
