Regret #5 I wish I had let myself be happier.

August 25, 2011

I’ve been thinking a lot about happiness and I’ve even written several pages but….I have not been comfortable with what I wrote. Way too much information. The challenge for me has been to share what I’ve learned in a clear and concise manner. “Keep It Simple,” is the message that keeps coming to me. Incidentally
Keep It Simple,” is a very good adage for life in general.

The more I wrote, the more thoughts that came to me, the more uncomfortable I became. So….for today this is all I’m going to say…

Regret #5 says, “I wish I had let myself be happier.”

Abe Lincoln said, “Most of us are as happy as we make up our minds to be.

Happiness for me is an inside job. Acceptance of what is and letting go of expectations is a powerful lesson I’ve been learning for about 29 years. For me the key is “willingness!” Sometimes I’ve had to say, “O.K. I’m willing to be willing to be willing!”  Opening up to what is and to the best of my ability letting it be, seems like a simple answer but it is not easy. Sometimes it’s a struggle but well worth it. In the process I’ve learned who I am and what I came here to do. Happiness for me is the by-product of living life fully from the place within that guides me and loves me through everything that comes my way…… if I’m willing. Remember “Willingness is the Key!” and it’s o.k. for your prayer to be….I’m willing to be willing to be willing….Amen!!!

“Bloom Where You are Planted.”

“Let Go of Expectations.”

“Willingness is the Key.”

“Keep It Simple.”

Blessings Galore to all of you as you continue to grow and change and become all that you were created to be and do.
