I just realized the last time I posted was 1) a long time ago and 2) not at all how my life is right now or how I want my blog to be seen by people who just tumble upon it.
Life is not about checking off boxes.
Life us not about being “perfect”.
Life is about the journey. About finding happiness along the way.
I’ve always searched for my happiness in end points. In my career. In my possessions. In my status quo. But those are all just moments or final destinations.
I’ve realized that for me, I work to live. Work is not currently where my happiness is. I work so I can be comfortable while I’m not working. So I can invest in myself and invest in my adventures. Lots of people I’ve been surrounded by live to work. They put the majority of their time and effort there. I used to be confused by this. “How could anyone enjoy working that much?” But now I respect it and to be honest I’m a little jealous of it.
I am so happy right now in this moment.
I have a roof over my head. I have a job through a global pandemic. I am healthy both mentally and physically. I have the most loving and supportive partner beside me. These are the most important things right now.
I hope if anyone is struggling, you are able to pause and choose a few amazing things to focus on. It can be anything as simple as having time to make a cup of coffee in the morning or making a stranger smile at the grocery store. These moments are what create happiness and contentment.
I hope you are all staying safe and healthy and I am sending all the love to anyone who needs a little extra today.
