My first born daughter, Mila is now three and a half years old. She’s starting preschool next week, and this milestone has me pretty emotional. For me, it’s a symbol that she’s becoming more independent, and therefore she will become just a little bit more aware of the world (and the good – and not so good things about it). I know, I know. For God’s sake Alex – it’s not like she’s starting college! Trust me…I realize that I’m probably more emotional than I need to be.
how to be happy
“Mom, you can cook a mean roast beef dinner, and you’re a pretty good listener. But, your stomach is big and you could lose a few pounds in your butt too. Oh, and your jokes aren’t that funny either, and everyone at work probably thinks you’re not very smart. And I think I’ll tell you this every single day, just to remind you in case you forget”.
I find it heartbreaking that so many of us walk around feeling a sense of unhappiness every single day, and yet…all we want as humans is to feel truly happy. We search and search for this “happiness” as if it’s something tangible we can find…but in reality, the only way to find it is to dig deep within ourselves. So, today…I’m starting that conversation and helping you dig a little bit deeper.
