I think the key to happiness is to find, and STATE IN ONE WORD, if possible, what makes you happy. My word is FREEDOM. My word has alway been FREEDOM. Without FREEDOM, I wouldn’t have love, joy, fun, or happiness. Having FREEDOM opens the door for all the good things in life to come in. Without FREEDOM I wouldn’t be able to live MY life, but would be like so many others, living to please other people and that never worked for me, not even as a kid. It doesn’t work for a LOT of people but they don’t have a word of their own, so they live by the words of others. I’m guessing that FREEDOM has as many definitions as there are people, but my definition works for me.
If you don’t find your word, happiness won’t be able to find you. Your definition can’t change from one minute to the next…that would be like trying to cook dinner when everyone keeps changing their mind, as to what they want to eat, every second. When you find your word, all the things associated with it will make their way to your doorstep and believe me, with that word, no matter what happens, you will be okay. I believe our word can change, over time. We change, so our word might change as well, but mine has always been the same. I have to have a way out, even if it’s death, because I refuse to live any other way but my own. Because I’m free, I have everything.
The bottom line: if you don’t find your word, you won’t recognize the happiness you think you want, even if it’s right in front of you. Find your word. Ask yourself what it is and then when it’s yours, DEFINE it. You can’t get lost, once you have your word. Try to keep your definition tight, so it’s not so big it becomes meaningless. And don’t lie to yourself…don’t say love, or peace in the world, if painter, or poet, is your word. If you lie to yourself you won’t be happy. It’s NOT SELFISH to want to be who you are, to have your own word. That is a LIE society tells people, especially females. Your word is FOR YOU, not for the world, or your for family. Once you have your word, those things will automatically fit in. But your word is yours alone. Definetrue happiness for your soul, in one word. That’s the key to a happy life.
Hey, I’m just sayin’.
This dancer makes me so very happy. Take a moment to REALLY LOOK at her face. Wild abandonment…a joyful spirit. Her happiness cannot be contained. Life at it’s very best moment. This is true beauty.
