My goals and vision for my life is always steeped in ensuring that happiness shine through. I never want to step into a new realm without feeling that it will better me within. No matter the monetary gain, peace and contentment must prevail among all. Today, I actually gave some thought to choosing something that others may view as not indicative of happiness. The truth is that what one may view as happiness doesn't always mean the same for others. I find joy and happiness by sitting with my family and cracking jokes. I find joy and happiness in spending quiet moments with my mother. I find happiness fishing alongside my dad. When it comes to work, there is an indescribable sense of pride, joy and happiness when a Dr, Mgr or Co Worker gives you the thumbs up, pat on the back or a simple thank you. So, as I start transitioning into the next 40 years of my life, I can't help but wonder if maybe my thoughts should shift a bit more towards a realistic, materialistic and overall monetary way of living. Happiness is great but wouldn't it be even better if I didn't have to think about mounting medical bills and credit card bills? Happiness is awesome, but how much better would it be if I was challenged and was able to turn something that seemed difficult into an accomplishment that others doubted I'd be able to achieve? Today, I'm stuck between following a path that leaves me in a place of stagnation and truly pursuing those things that will help me to grow in ways i'm sure I couldn't imagine. I titled this Stuck between a Rock and a Hard place but after writing i'm realizing, that i'm not stuck at all. Like Dorothy, I just have to jump on the yellow brick road.
