A question always presented by my parents, no matter what crazy idea I supported, whatever journey I embarked on or whatever risks I’ve taken; “are you happy?”
It’s a simple question, but it’s the simplicity of it that I relate to. That one question inadvertently forces me to face any of my life’s decisions and yes it includes relationships.
Life isn’t supposed to be complicated, so long as you’re living by this one principle. Don’t get me wrong, it can get hard as hell making life work your way, but it’s knowing that you’re invested in the things that will make you happy, is what makes life worthwhile.
When you really think about it, what is the essence of your goals and dreams?
This feel good factor has nothing to do with indulging your inner desires. It’s having the focus, determination and courage to be who you are and to live your life how you intend to. If you can achieve this way of living then happiness is what you’ll generate.
Life is what you make of it and I want you to make it happy one. Go out there and show the world what your made of, wear a smile on your face and prove that life is worth living.
I just had a random flashback of my mum’s morning alarm song; to quote the lyrics of Bobby McFerrin (a.k.a. Mums wake up song) -“Don’t worry, Be Happy!” 🙂
