“Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.” - Guillaume Apollinaire
Last Sunday after church I was thinking about what to blog about and it popped in my head probably from Jesus…you’re happy!
Depending on how long you have followed me, I have/had my share of woe is me moments and trying to push through. But at that moment in my car I felt happy and peaceful.
I’m not exactly where I want to be nor do I have all I want, but I’m proud of myself for pushing through and finding my happiness.
That was/is the goal since I turned 40 and so far so good. I’m overcoming my fears, pushing myself and doing what I want while looking pretty good, might I add LOL.
Starting my YouTube channel and hitting publish was one of the scariest things I have done since I did the same with my blog.
I saw this quote that said “If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit home and think about it, Go out and get busy” so that’s what I’m doing. Getting busy trying/doing all the things I have been scared to do. Will I succeed in them? Who knows, but not trying is a sure way not to know.
The upside is that every time I have posted a video or a blog post I feel good. Now, yes I do look at the analytics on my blog post and views on my YouTube videos and sometime it makes me a little sad, but then I go back to the fact that I posted it and somebody looked at it and at the end of the day that should be my purpose. If I touch one person, I’m doing something right.
So, now at this moment I’m happy. Will I feel this way next week, next month? I don’t know, but right now at this moment I am and I’m loving it. This is what I wanted/needed for my 40s and it feels so good.
