Confession: For Much of my Life I Wasn’t Happy

Then I made it a choice.

I didn’t want to admit I wasn’t happy.

It’s possible I didn’t even recognize I wasn’t happy. When you’ve been in the same state for most your life, it just feels normal.

You’re not broken, screwed up, or lacking in anything.

You might not believe that right now, but please trust me.

Now I choose Happiness.

Right now the idea of choosing happiness may seem absolutely ridiculous to you.

I love this quote by Eckhart Tolle:

“Discontent, blaming, complaining, self-pity cannot serve as a foundation for a good future, no matter how much effort you make.”

Discontent, blaming, complaining, self pity…they felt like unwelcome house guests.
