Live Your Happy

Have you ever noticed that we are all so busy in our pursuit of happiness, that we actually forget to enjoy the happiness?

We are in constant pursuit of the best:
  • education
  • career
  • house
  • car
  • mate
  • clothes
  • fill in the blank
And once we get the best, we want it even better.  It's a never ending ride.

I am guilty of this myself.

I love to watch those travels shows and envy the people who travel all over the world and stay at those posh resorts - fantasizing that someday that will be me.  Recently, I found myself lounging poolside at one of those posh resorts.  Ironically, it was my Veganism that brought me to such a lap of luxury.  And was I enjoying it?  Of course not, I was living the dream and not even realizing it.  Luckily for me, just before leaving for my travels, I stumbled upon the quote pictured above and at just the right moment, it popped into my mind.  Right then and there, I put the brain on pause and lived in the moment for the rest of my vacation.  Aside from the super posh surroundings, it was by far the best vacation of my life!  Days later, I am still feeling the after glow.

So, boys & girls - today's lesson is, stop and enjoy the moment.  Celebrate all that you are and all that you have achieved thus far.  Get off the "Pursuit of Happiness Ride" from time to time and actually be happy.  Then go back to being the ambitious person that got you to that happy place.

Live Your Happy!
