I saw some friends last night that I hadn’t seen in a few months and one friend (you know who you are, I won’t call you out!) said he was sad because of all my sad posts on Facebook. I said, “You can’t be said if I’m not sad, there is nothing to be sad about.”
Please don’t mistake my blog posts as anything but reflection, growth, and frankly, I need to get a following so that I can have a best-selling book!!! I’m in no way looking for sympathy, I don’t need any, “Oh you poor thing” looks when you see me on the street. Despite the happenings of the last few months, I am in a great place. I have an amazing little boy who keeps me laughing and moving everyday, I have a job that keeps a roof over my head and food on the table, I have a calling in life that is allowing me to follow my dreams.
I’m happy. My happiness is not determined by a person or place or thing or job, it’s determined by my attitude and my gratitude. I’m sad that there is a big (literally!) part of my life missing out on the great things that are happening right now, but I’m not unhappy. If I’m not unhappy, you can’t be unhappy for me.
