Find Your Happy 

If you’ve been around for any length of time you probably understand that life happens and when it does you can lose your happiness among many other things. Lately I have been trying to find the abundance of happiness and joy that used to flow through me like blood. I’m sorry I haven’t been writing that much, but at the sane time I am not because I am trying to get back to my happy.

It was not until after I was done my book that I had realized that I lost the what was once contagious joy and happiness that radiated from me even through times of pain and sorrow. If you have been following my blog for a while you probably noticed that once the book was done my posting frequency dissipated.

A big part of writing my book was acknowledging all the things I had avoided dealing with during that time frame as my recovery was enough at the time I did not have the time or the energy to tackle anything else other than day-to-day life. Now into the better half of my recovery there has been a lot of reflection and time to accept, feel, and work through all those other things. Most days it’s at least a few hours of occupational/ physio exercises but after that I could spend a couple of hours staring at a wall while I do hand strengthening exercises. Over the last few months there has been a lot of healing so all that wall staring must be a good thing haha. I do not know that I’m ready to dive into my next book and set a deadline for it, but I am slowly getting back into writing.

No matter what life throws at you as you trek through your various journeys remember that you are not alone and that if need be you can modify the path to your goals to better suit your needs. It Is not how fast you make the journey, but the fact that you did it. Who cares if you reach your goal in two years or five years, the chances of you getting a prize for reaching the goal in a shorter period of time are slim unless you’re an Olympian.

Lonely Vs. Alone

It is a common misconception in today’s day that if you are alone you should automatically be lonely, When really you should be able to enjoy your alone time for you time where you focus on your needs that are not being met in any area of life. We are all unique and individual people so why are so many people looking for their better half not realizing or acknowledging that you are a full and complete person and don’t constantly need someone around to feel good about yourself.

I’m one of those people who does extremely well-being on my own because not only do I enjoy my own company, but I also love how much more productive I cn be without the distractions of someone else being there. Yes there are times where it definitely does get lonely, but for me being alone just means productive peace and quiet. It likely helps that other than writing I have enough hobbies that if uninterrupted I could be busy for the next several years.

Instead of constantly complaining about being lonely when you are alone, get a hobby or maybe a few. I promise that making yourself busy and expanding your horizons will fill that void once you find the right fit for you. Almost a year ago now I found a few of my right fits and honestly can’t believe that almost a year has gone by. For the most part I have been too busy to even notice that I’m single. I know one day I’ll find my “partner in crime”, but quite frankly I have too much going on and am gearing up to go back to school in 2018 so I don’t even have the time right now.

Cheers,
