So I realized something today. Noooo….NOT just that I am a horrible blogger and have been neglecting my readers and blogging lately! But, I realized that I. AM. HAPPY! No…..let me rephrase that, I am Happily content with my life! Now this doesn’t mean that I experience happiness ALL THE TIME! I’m not walking around wearing my creepy Joel Olsteen smile everyday. In fact, I’ve actually been feeling a bit down these past few weeks (single girl problems).
But what I do mean, is that although feelings of sadness, loneliness worry, and anxiety pass in and out of my life on a daily basis; the lingering presence……the thing that remains….is the peace of being happily content.
It’s a peace of knowing that whatever comes and goes, whatever happens, I’ll be alright. I’ll get through it. I used to wonder what I had to do, or what place I had to arrive at so that I would never experience depression or sadness ever again. But the longer I live, the more I realize that maybe life isn’t about avoiding certain feelings and emotions, maybe it’s about learning how to manage them when they come.
But that’s it for now, I just wanted to share that while it was on my heart and mind. AS usual I’d love to hear your thoughts, questions, and comments.
