When you experience a lot of emotional and mental challenges early on in life, it’s sometimes difficult to believe that there will be a time in which happiness may take over your life. I know women (and men) who’ve been hurt so deeply by the time they are 25, they believe they will never get married or be in a great relationship. Some who feel so entrapped by their past, they find it very difficult to the light in their future.
I love having conversations with people who've seemed to have so many lives wrapped up in one. People who've lost love and were able to find it again. Who sacrifice for their lives for their children, and start anew once all their children are out the house. Even others, who've been able to advance in several career fields.
There is proof everyday around you that happiness is abundantly available. There is so much opportunity for greatness, impact, success and amazing experiences. Always know that as long as you have breath in your body, you have life right in your hands. In the name if self love, honor who you are and the deserving nature of your presence to feel love and joy while spreading love and joy. Disappointment happens. Loss happens. Heck life happens, and sometimes our "plans" are derailed," but never let such occurrences keep you completely away from living and being open to renewal.
Happiness is a choice. Joy is a concentrated way of life. Choose to always move beyond feelings of "blah", unworthiness, defeat, and doubt. You have choices. You always have choices, and the life you want to live is available.
How will you live today?
