I ate pie tonight. Only had a small bite left before I realized I wanted a picture for this post, so you can have a picture of the best bite. The bite I always save for last. It was good. It was while I was eating it that I came to an interesting revelation. Life throws mean and nasty curve balls at us sometimes. Things that are unfair, things that stretch us to the point where we think we’re sure to break. We carry the weight of those choices around afterwards. Sometimes, life gets you down. The choice I am making is to be happy. It’s ok to just be happy. I’m not always going to make everyone else happy. That’s life. And there will certainly be times when I struggle or feel alone or down. That’s ok too. I think what I’m realizing is that it’s a choice you make, to allow yourself to be happy. Stop beating ourselves up, stop comparing ourselves, stop overanalyzing every problem or negative quality and truly embrace a moment to be happy.
Tomorrow, I go back to work. I’ve been nervous about getting my head in the game. Tonight, I’m not nervous anymore. Bring it on! I’m going to embrace the happy. Cuz it’s ok. 🙂
