Let me say hello!
Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be – Abe Lincoln
I want to start by saying that I truly believe the words spoken by our 16th president, Abe Lincoln – “most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be “. I’m about as happy as they come most of the time. I love looking at what each moment offers, being present in my surroundings, enjoying life on life’s terms.
We find out who we really are when we can see ourselves in any particular moment.
I don’t pretend to do this perfectly, nor do I have to. Today I can just be. Getting to this point though was the kind of challenge that only retrospect allows you to smile at. I was, for all intensive purposes, just another miserable, unsatisfied, restless individual. I was always irritable, depressed, never content with where I was or who I was. I didn’t know what I was missing, but that never stopped me for searching for the “it” to fix me and for me the wrong forms of “happiness” always seemed to take over, bringing yet more misery, depression, followed by another search.
I’m so glad life is so much simpler today!
While this blog may go back and look at some of those darker moments, may look forward at the possible brighter moments, this is just about being in the moment and discovering myself again, for the 1st time. Today I know where my feet are. And I am finding my true self when I am planted in the world around me.
I invite you along. I invite you to invite others along with us as we live, learn, grow together. I can’t be the only one still searching for me?
Feel your blessings friends! #goodvibesonly #safezone -Millie
