I am not sure when it “hit” me that this is my only life and I am wasting it away waiting for stuff/events/situations that may never happen. Not sure if it was when I cried so hard that I felt I was drowning in tears that my mother never wept for me or the next morning when I woke up with eyes swollen to the point it looked as if I was in a fight with Mike Tyson.
Either way, it hit me that no matter what I do, don’t do or the challenges that come my way this is the only time I have so I need to be happy right now. The ah hah moment? Realizing that everyday that I am sad because I am waiting for my mother’s unconditional love is a waste of MY LIFE. Waiting for a man or date to come along in order to try a new restaurant, see a new part of the city, travel the country, see a play is again wasting the time in MY LIFE.
The point is this – there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the WAY. So, make HAPPY your way of LIFE regardless of who is or is not in it. Live your life to the fullest because there are no do overs. Think about it…why choose to be miserable/sad when its just as easy to choose happiness?
