It took many years and many mistakes to learn “happy”. I was putting on a show and doing what I was told. Until, one day, the good ol’ death card popped up on the doctor’s tarot card table, and I was reborn. Understand, I didn’t want to change – I resisted it as long as I could. But, in the end, I wanted to live life to its fullest. So, I began searching for a new path. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not living the vida loca with no worries. I’ve just learned to appreciate what I have – in the moments that they happen.
I’m still (and always) learning to be happy – with lots of struggle and raised voices along the way. But, it sure beats the heck out of hiding and denial. I finally get it – what all those happy people are talking about. I just had to start searching for my own happy path.
