Ever felt so much agony that all you wanted to do was crawl up into a turtle shell and live there forever? But then aggravation engulfs your mind when your plan to avoid pain goes askew? Have you ever felt so lonely despite the many people that filled the space around you? Have you ever felt so encompassed by negative thoughts that you just wanted to take a vacation from your mind…forever? Have you ever found yourself sitting in your puddle of tears wondering why you just weren’t good enough? Have you ever pleaded for a way to find true joy?
Yeah me too….
I understand what it feels like and you are not by any means alone. Each of you have this remarkable, heavenly worth; attempting to describe this worth is merely pointless, simply because words could never do you justice. You matter. You matter so much. I have personally experienced many situations in life that left me feeling unhappy and discontent. Whether it be relationships, friendships, a loss of a loved one, or simply just a very bad grade in Calculus. I have also realized that these unbearable moments in life do NOT define me, nor will they ever.
Happiness seems to be such a vital aspect of life that each of us genuinely crave. We are constantly looking for the thing or person that will come to us on a silver platter and sweep us off our feet to provide our lives with everlasting joy. As I was pondering this concept one evening, I was filled with this overwhelming wave of peace. I realized that joy, true joy, needed to be found from within. When I came to this realization, I began researching, reading, and discovering methods to obtain authentic happiness. On that evening, I began my pursuit to happiness.
