sometimes life is moving so fast around us that the best we can do is just hold on tight. i hate that feeling of losing control, but life is hard. it isn’t supposed to be easy, it isn’t supposed to be what you expected and it certainly isn’t going to be what you always wanted. but the most important thing in life is that you have the power to make it great.
i’ve been asking myself what makes me happy. of course depending on the day, hour or moment my answer would be different.
days i couldn’t be happier cuddled amongst big fluffy blankets in bed playing hide and seek with my dads cat. i’m laughing. i’m admiring. i’m relaxed. the simple life.
nights i’m sitting in a lonely restaurant with my dad in the booth across from me. i’m listening to his stories but focusing on how happy he is being able to share this moment with me. thinking cherish this. this is the heart of life.
afternoons i’m day dreaming of friends in far off places. thinking are they laughing? do you remember the time when we laughed so hard we cried together. i do. and i’m laughing too.
i can think of times where i couldn’t believe i was lucky enough to be in a place others only dreamed about. taking a second to breath in that moment. i often wish for that thrill of exploring the unknown and having daily adventures with no regard to any routine.
but most of all, i know my life is great. and i plan on making each day greater. sometimes it takes a little reflection and hindsight to see the greatness but it’s there.
and it’s smiling back at me.
Love, lucky me
