An online friend of mine, Debbie Hampton of the blog ‘The Best Brain Possible’, posted this quote this morning. I liked it and since I didn’t have any great week-long series in mind thought I would just start with what was right in front of me, just like the quote says!
Do you miss out on happiness because you only want to reap it, never plant it? You never want to find it, just to search for it? You don’t want to trust it, just judge it?
What does not being happy give to you? How does your unhappiness or your longing for (but not finding) happiness feed you? How does it help define you? What do you like about being not happy yet?
Answer those questions and it just might make you happy.
