Smile for yourself

Ask most people what they want out of life and the answer is simple - to be happy. Maybe it's this expectation of wanting to be happy
that just keeps us from ever getting there. Maybe the more we try to will ourselves to states of bliss, the more confused we get -
to the point where we don't recognize ourselves. Instead we just keep smiling - trying to be the happy people we wish we were.
Until it eventually hits us, it's been there all along. Not in our dreams or our hopes but in the known, the comfortable, the familiar.

Ties that bind

''A wise man once said you can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it. What he meant is nothing comes without a price. So before you go into battle, you better decide how much you’re willing to lose. Too often, going after what feels good means letting go of what you know is right, and letting someone in means abandoning the walls you’ve spent a lifetime building. Of course, the toughest sacrifices are the ones we don’t see coming, when we don’t have time to come up with a strategy to pick a side or to measure the potential loss. When that happens, when the battle chooses us and not the other way around, that’s when the sacrifice can turn out to be more than we can bear."
this week taught me, that happiness is within my grasp.
