A lot has changed in a year, huh??
I should have trusted some of you more when you told me that things would be okay...that things would work out the way He wanted them to, but ya know me...ye of little faith and all. I think one of the biggest things I have learned since last year is that, I am not the one driving the big bus called life. He is. I have learned to trust a whole lot more. I still have issues trusting "people", but I have gotten to a serene place in my life where I completely trust God. I look for the fruit growing on a vine that I might have looked past before.
I also recognize another huge change for me and that relates to happiness. Use to be...I would equate happiness with what I was doing for others and what I was creating for others and there was no real fulfilment in that. I was miserable, because ya know what...we can not make others happy. They have to make themselves happy and then throw the collective pieces into one big bucket called happiness.
There are still bad days. There are still bad things that happen, but it's in our approach that we seek the freedom from being miserable. Sure, you can sit there and say, "blah, blah, blah...my life is so crappy", but what is the sense in that? Turn it around and force yourself to focus on the moments of joy and your mood will lift.
There is beauty, even amongst the dead leaves and darkness of a cold, dreary day.
There are moments when we get to see the sparkle of an old chandelier in a unique location.
A home is just four walls that have found it's happiness. I am so glad I found mine.
This is Home Girl and I hope you focus on happiness today...pure and simple.
