If Today was your Last Day
As humans we seem to just live for the chase
we use every reason to keep moving every day
thinking what we want is in the next fad or diet
(want meaning to make you happy)
the next house, car, holiday
the next bag, shoes, clothes
finding the right partner, having kids
hoping to be finally content, to be fulfilled and happy
but the answer is never there,
so we keeping looking…
We keep tripping over the truth and ignore it
the answer is right in front of us but it is hidden in plain sight.
see what I mean?
we are looking externally for our happiness
we keep searching and searching
but what if we just stopped?
what if we just realised that happiness is not without
what if we just decided to be happy and realise that it has been our choice all along
we were just too scared to just stop and face the truth that it is a choice.
just decide to be happy
look around and realise we have to begin with our happiness and not chase it down. you will never catch it.
there is no destination, no prize for first place
it is how long we enjoy our journey that counts
Start being happy, today.
Do the things that give you happiness and BE happy!
Each day is a gift and not a given right
Do not take anything for granted in your life
No matter who you are,
you can BE who you want to be
You can DO what you want to do
Do not stand in your own way
because you cannot rewind a moment in your life
Time is never on your side
so what would you do if today was your last day?
would you decide today to be happy
would you do what you want, what you love, with who you love?
would you let go of the past?
Choose today to BE that day
take your first step towards your happiness.
what would that be like?
