I always try to point out universal truths on here and when I’m communicating with folks in general.
I know that sometimes our life circumstances can suck really, really badly. I know that heartbreaks, trauma and struggles can be debilitating. I know that in an instant, our lives can shift dramatically for better or for worse.
That’s why I don’t agree when people say that ‘happiness is a choice.’ Sometimes it’s a choice and sometimes it seems like a very impossible choice. And I’m not trying to be pessimistic… I only want to be real and to validate all experiences.
Anyways, no matter what you’re going through right now – whether your life situation is good, bad or somewhere in between, one thing is for sure: We can control this very moment.
So if something as simple as going for a 5 minute walk or making yourself a cup of tea will make you live in the present and be at least content for the moment, I hope you allow yourself that possibility. :)
