I Want To Be Happy Too.

i think that it's important to maintain a sense of child-like innocense in order to be truly happy. i also think that it's important to take care of yourself-- that includes not being around toxic people or being in toxic environments. in a spiritual sense, you have to build a sheild to protect your inner child from and understand that what people say and do around you often has less to do with you and more to do with them and where they come from. you are just a bystander witnessing someone else's point-of-view that may or may not jive with your own--trying to not take it personally to heart-- but letting it fizzle like a match dipped in water. it can't burn you if you are secure in who you are-- and You define Yourself!-- don't give someone the power to define you or tell you who you are...
the other thing that it takes to be happy is to follow what your heart says to do-- to ride the whimsy and remember that the day is an adventure-- that nothing is written yet! there is possibility here! lastly, it's letting that light shine--- connecting with people-- being your authentic self-- being bold enough to take risks and make mistakes...

i want this for myself. sometimes i think we forget about what it all means-- what makes life great... and we have to try to reconnect with what we know in our hearts.... i share this here because mostly, i want you to meet me here in this metaphorical place and let's find out what will happen! let's ride and keep the momentum going....
