Happiness may seem elusive and difficult to obtain, but is present in each thought, perspective, moment.
Layers upon layers,
between the breaths of words,
the gentle caress of a lover,
the sense of belonging with another.
It may not seem like much on the surface,
with shouting and screaming happening on each corner of the globe,
but there is much being said by the quiet,
by the colors less viewed as vibrant,
A deep-rooted, introspective beauty,
ridges, speckles, emanating from within.
Much happens within the details of stillness.
By opening our eyes and heart, we understand that struggles and desires mirror one another. Some may seem better off, have things figured out, but overlapping happenings unite our shared human experience. Compassion, not judgement, connect us to one another.
Being true to ourselves not only allows for us to create the space needed to think and act instead of react, but helps to align life to our hearts.
There is nothing wrong with creating boundaries, selecting how and with whom we would like to spend our time, where and what we would like to do with our energy. At times this may cause friction, disappointment, and difficult situations, but more importantly, what would life be like if we chose to live in accordance with our truth? Exponential growth, spontaneous alignment, serendipitous synchronicity are but a few possibilities.
