What are we looking for in our lives?
For me there are a few constants...peace in my heart and balance.
Buddha is known for quoting, "Be happiness itself" which reminds me that happiness is as close as the reflection in my mirror.
How easy it is to turn and look away, point the finger at him/her, that experience and decide not to own our experiences and the choices we are making.
It's a hard concept to swallow, the idea that we "can" be happy...that peace does exist..perhaps not out there but within each of us...
This sterling charm necklace reminds me of the gift of choice each of us has, the gift to consciously take ownership of our happiness and create the balance we need in our lives.
We have the choice to:
give a smile
breathe deeply in moments of frustration
work toward finding a job we actually enjoy
have patience with our children
let that person merge into traffic
exercise and eat right
call a friend
make arrangements to go on 'that' date with your spouse
walk in nature to nurture our soul
say 'no' or change our minds on a commitment because we are too over loaded...........
and NOT blame life for the choices we can control which lead to our state of happiness and balance.....
