"Happiness blooms from within."
Sometimes I find myself thinking about the present and feeling dissatisfied; issues arise and seem to be impossible to address and I wonder if it is too much to hope for them to be resolved. Almost immediately after that I am filled with a strong sense of guilt; ingratitude is a terrible thing and I do not to find myself in a place where I cannot be grateful for everything that is going well or getting better. But it is difficult; some things in life are cyclic and without a possible end in sight, some struggles appear as though they are lifelong and that can be very discouraging. How do you find contentment when so much is going awry? Perhaps, it is intuitive, but remembering that happiness and content does not come from outside sources is key especially when things are hard. Happiness is a state of mind. That is not to say that you will always be happy, but it is a reminder that if you are always looking for the source of personal joy outwardly, you'll always be expecting more than what is there. Life will always be wanting, because things could be better or different than they are. So my hope is in finding the moments that draw smiles and laughter and remembering all that is, rather than all that is not, I'll also find what I need to handle all the cycles and happenings, even when it does not seem to be getting better.
So, there's really not much to tell. I'm a person of many interests, and talking to others about theirs.
So, I guess that's it for now!
