Today I am happy.
I am not happy because of what I am wearing.
I am not happy because of what my hair looks like.
I am not happy because of the car I drive.
I am not happy because of the house I live in and the block I live on.
I am not happy because of the man I entered into a covenant with.
I am not happy because of the beautiful and astonishingly intelligent children I have.
I am not happy because of the title I hold at my job.
I am not happy because of the education I have received that validates the knowledge I posses.
Even though…all of these things bring some form of happiness.
Even though… these things make me smile and make my life a little more easy.
I am happy because I know who I am.
I am happy because I know my purpose.
I am happy because my creator allows me to remain healthy and in my right mind.
I am happy because I have the drive and desire to do what’s necessary…even when I may lack some of the resources.
I am happy because as long as I heave breath in my lungs…I have another shot at making whatever I need to right.
Ultimately… I am happy because I have (for the most part) accepted that I have to live life on life and the creators terms…but I am willing to do my part. I am walking in and operating in my purpose in a world that is so unpredictable.
Why not be happy? I am reasonably living a life of….what more can I ask for.
