It Was Always About You...

"You're going to realize it one day-that happiness was never about your job, or your degree, or being in a relationship. Happiness was never about following in the footsteps of all of those who came before you, it was never about being like others. One day, you're going to see it-that happiness was always about the discovery, the hope, the listening to your heart and following it where it chose to go. Happiness was always about being kinder to yourself, it was always about embracing the person you were becoming. One day, you will understand. That happiness was always about learning how to live with yourself, that happiness was never in the hands of other people. It was always about you. It was always about you."-Bianca Sparacino

Sounds wonderful but our hearts aren't always the easiest to figure out and often lead us in directions we wished we hadn't followed...I think having wise people around us to provide guidance is often the best...I wish I had such guidance years ago...good luck with your search.

I agree. Sometimes I want things and when I get them, I wish I hadn't wanted them. But, that being said, I think that is all part of the process of figuring out what makes you happy! Friends and family also help :)

It was never in the hands of other people, that's powerful. Knowing true happiness comes from within means not needing anyone or anything to be happy. That it is always a choice, and I don't have to wait for something to happen, I can be happy right now.
Thanks for the reminder Brittany, it makes me happy 😂😋

I am so glad!! Your posts always make me happy!!
