Inspired Life Lesson #8...Happiness

~*::{From my overgrown and unweeded garden}::*~
.....................................................................................................
Today I reached out for happiness

and it hurt me

I went to pick it up

to move it someplace nicer

and it poked me so hard

I thought that I might bleed

Although it still hurts

it only chipped a nail

and left my finger tender

I'm not sure if it was a good sign

that when I went for it

it bit me

Metaphorically speaking

many would have a field day with this

I think that it means that

I must reach for my happiness

even if it hurts me

I must move my happiness

to a nicer place

even if it is full of challenges


Where do you keep your happiness?

My lady,
I have found that we take hurt too too much. It is a lesson for us. It is what is. Suffering happens no matter our greatest effort. Happiness lies in the knowing of this.

I have discovered if I look inside for my happiness, it never hurts. Then, no matter what happens on the outside, I simply move "indoors" into my secret happy place, and breathe in the serenity. This is a beautiful post.
