I told myself that just because i didnt have something i wanted, doesnt mean i shouldnt be happy. We chase things 80 years of our lives and are unhappy because we still dont have them. The happiness we feel once we do, only lasts 80 months. And so i decided to be happy, during the chase and after.
I’m sure I overheard this from a woman when I was a teen, & it always stuck with me- because it resonated with me so much. She said, “I don’t have to be happy- I just have to be comfortable.” I Deeply understand this….
