Happy New Year!
And that’s exactly what I plan to do. Happiness is my goal as it should be everyone’s. It’s not always easy, we all face tough times and its okay to be stressed, scared, sad. I’ve certainly been through that. This last year I had loved ones pass away, failed in so many ways, got angry, yelled at people…and had my heart broken.
But I do live a pretty good life. Believe me I’m not rich but I’m better off than some and many people think that that should bring me happiness. It doesn’t.
I’ve been chasing after what I thought Happiness was. Getting married, having children, buying a home, a car, a college education, my kids educated. It did give me a moment of happiness. But in all honesty the reward doesn’t last.
My New Year’s resolution will be to write a To Do List and it will be about giving.
So Stop for a moment! Breathe! Be with your loved ones! And reach out and touch others!
