this time around.
"we tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have." - frederick koenig
for the last two months, i have forgotten. i had been searching for happiness in something i did not have. i felt like i could not be happy without it...but oh, how wrong i was. i've finally realized that i don't need to be chasing after something that does not want to be chased. instead, i've decided to stay within the company of those that appreciate me just as much as i appreciate them.
i might be doing it again, wanting something that i don't have, thinking it might make me a little bit happier. but this time it's different. i'm not really sure how, but it just feels different. it feels... better. :)
man, happiness is liberating.
