Hi Loves.

I hope you are all doing well.

Life is pretty great with Trav, Phoenix and I. Every day just seems to be better than the last. I feel so lucky today. I am up early before the boys reflecting on all that I am grateful for and the list just never ends.

This is not a #blessed kind of post. It is not a “look how amazing my life is” post. I wanted to write a post about how fortunate we all are. Even if today is the worst day of your life, HOW COOL. Things are changing for you. I see really really bad days as days that the universe has given to you to drastically change your path, always for the better. The worst day of my life sent me directly to Trav and now I have him and Phoenix and I am the happiest I have ever been.

Am I the happiest I have ever been because I have Trav and Phoenix? Maybe. Or maybe I am the happiest I have ever been because I know things  I never knew before. I know that happiness is a choice you can make for yourself. Happiness can be found in any moment of life. Even the worst moments. Even in the mundane moments.

I have Travis and Phoenix but I also have alot of responsibility and possible stressors that I never used to have. I could focus on that. How tired I am. How broke I feel. How scared I am for the risks we are taking. There are endless negatives to focus on. But why? Why ever focus on the negative? Does it help? Does it make them go away? Nope.

Since I have found meditation and Trav (who is super smart and has taught me so much in spirituality and life) I have become happier. WAY WAY WAY happier. But neither are the cause of my happiness. Trav inspires me to be happy. Meditation leads me to happiness. But ultimately it is still just up to me.

Since meeting Trav I have had major life events occur, most of which would normally induce crazy amounts of stress for me. Although I had met the man of my dreams there were still bills to be paid, arguments to be had, family matters to deal with, a baby¬†to grow, have and raise, and then just the every day “what is life?” question to be answered.

Making a lot of money, having the perfect career, having complete freedom, or meeting the right person¬†doesn’t MAKE you happy. They¬†might make it a little easier to be happy, but happiness is inside you. Love, joy, gratefulness, playfulness, is all within you. Everything you need is literally inside you. You just have to take some time to find it.

There are great yogis in India who haven’t eaten or had a drink of water in years, have been burried alive for 7 days and then re-emerge totally fine……whoah.

I’ll let you know if I find that kind of happiness. World hunger SOLVED. (if only it were that easy)

I’m not saying you should be so happy you don’t need food. I am saying that it’s possible for you to be everything you want to be. Have everything you want to have. Do everything you want to do.

The permission slip is one you write yourself.

SO: do it. Write yourself that permission slip to do, be, have, whatever the fuck you want.

Happiness is the expression of love. Find it, spread it.

You are not here on earth to struggle, to suffer, to pay for your “sins”, or otherwise. You are here to have a freakin great time.

Life is really not that serious. No one makes it out alive…..ha.

 

So why do live like we aren’t going to die? Why do we spend our entire life building some kind of empire we won’t be alive to enjoy?

If you aren’t enjoying every single day of your life you are doing it wrong.

You can enjoy every day, with out quitting your job (but maybe you should ūüėČ ) or leaving your spouse, because like I said, the happiness that you are looking for is in your chest, in your heart, your soul.

Happiness is who you truly are.

So, BOOM! Thats pretty cool right?

Ok well I hope you all have a HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY day!

Love and Light kids

XOXO
