They make things easier for sure, like someone else to cook, clean, and take care of the kids, but it won’t truly make us happy. Is Disneyland the happiest place on earth? The one time I went there we spent hours in line for lame rides, spent way too much money on unhealthy food that made us all sick to our stomachs, and bought things we never wore again after the trip. This commercial Hollywood romance style of happiness and real life aren’t the truth. Real happiness comes after real struggles and challenges, and still after standing up to those heartbreaking issues, the Universe gives us more to deal with. So, no fairytale endings here for happiness. Those are myths we read to our children to teach them the value of hope despite everything.
Happiness is finding the time for real connection with those we love and building connections with those me may love. Taking chances can bring happiness...or not. But having the free will to take a chance, well, the freedom of choices makes me happy. How about you? I want to hear from you.
