“There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way”. Buddha
There are so many great quotes that if you read them closely just mean so much. This is one of them. There isn’t a magic pill to take to be happy, you have to wake up every day and be happy. How hard is this? Very hard for some I realize. For others, not hard at all.
I consider myself a happy person. I’m not exuberant on the outside by any stretch but I’m happy on the inside. Content. In fact sometimes I just can’t believe how good I have it. I am rich in so many ways: healthy kids, an amazing husband, a business we love, great family + friends, the list goes on and on.
Keith and I have had plenty of ups and downs over the years but for some reason we rarely get discouraged. We may be disappointed but we always see through the temporary set back. We tend to find the good in the bad. We work together and get through things. I think if either of us was a pessimist, it just wouldn’t work for us. I guess it’s the way we deal with things, just let them roll off of us and that keeps us sane.
Seeing the photo above puts me in a happy place. Every day is fast paced, chaotic but fun and full of love. We wouldn’t have it any other way. This is our road.
