It’s been quite a whirlwind the last few days. One thing that is apparently obvious now is when my focus is small, my world becomes smaller. It’s so easy to get caught up in the things that cause me agonizing stress. What I focus on multiplies and there are some things that should go away and never grow in size.
By nature, I tend hide away. In the midst of my quiet little world is a very loud voice that stifles my thoughts of everything that is good. It is so important to keep things in perspective and to spend the precious time I have truly enjoying this wonderful life I am blessed to live. Hiding away does not make the world go away. In fact, I see now how debilitating separating myself from life can really be. We are meant to be happy. We are supposed to laugh and surround ourselves with friends and family making precious memories with every step along the way.
Sometimes to step out of the dark, we need to move to a place of light. Nothing will even change by wishing on a star. We need to squash the negative reoccurring thoughts, we must limit our time around negative people and we need to do whatever it takes to feel good. Be happy, don’t dwell on the things you cannot change and do whatever you can to find your own little slice of peace. Don’t allow anyone or anything to rob you of the happiness you truly deserve. Go now and find your happy. Live it, celebrate it and spread it around. You do make a difference. You are the difference.
