It seems that if there is not one thing happening there is always another, and there are always going to be situations in my life that I will need to work through. I just have to be prepared for them with my daily meditation and a lot of patience to spare. The truth is, I made up my mind some time ago that I will not let the situations that hinder my days affect my emotions or take the inner peace that I have worked to build. Truly, nothing can have enough significance to be in charge of my happiness. I will be happy rain or shine, rich or poor, or lonely or with a crowd. I am grateful for having spent time evaluating what exactly qualifies as a happiness maker, and I hope that others can take time to learn not to wait for a better time to find happiness!
