Diligently, I pursued happiness (success), financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Unfortunately happiness did not inhabit external things or people like this.
*
*
We are taught to sacrifice, study hard, persevere, get a good education first, leading to a lucrative and prominent career, a house, cars, security, titles, positions.
*
*
We are devastated to find no peace of mind, only confusion and drama after all that achievement.
*
*
Facts:
*
None of us has any control over life.
*
None of us know what tomorrow holds, or even the next hour.
*
Life is not safe and we are vulnerable.
*
Life is awkward and we experience loss.
*
We all die, suffering then is eventual, inevitable.
*
Acceptance is the door to happiness.
*
Accepting life, right now, in its entirety, lets us exist in the same time frame as happiness. A great start.
*
I accept the risk, the chance of ridicule by others, the chance of failing, the chance of being criticized, as part of life.
*
I accept there will always be detractors, assholes, people who do not like me (us), they do not have the power to dim my happiness light.
*
We carry happy with us, created from our daily actions and beliefs.
