Last week while the "fur-flinging fuck fuck games" were going on, I tried to induce peace which backfired. It sucked pretty bad for me because I was also on the phone more times than I can count keeping one of my friends from committing suicide. He's in the hospital now getting help so that's good but I'm still pretty down today because I won't be able to check in on him since I work both jobs today and his counseling sessions overlap my commute. He's been a big brother to me since I was 9 years old; seeing him crack is especially hard because he helped dig me out of suicidal depression years ago.
I am trying to find my center again and renew my commitment to "choose to be happy". In that effort, I share this Finding Happiness with the IAB community.
Can we get some love on the site today?
Please share what makes you happy.
When I come home, my wife drops everything and runs up to me saying "You're home, you're home you're home!" and we hug for at least 30 seconds. Then we all (kids too) share the details of our day before dinner.
I enjoy tending my garden, canning what I grow and sharing it with friends and family. I thrive in crazy family gatherings where the food love flow freely.
I like to hike in the woods and sit by the creek just to listen to it go by. When I can't get there in person, I go there in my mind. I have a place I built as a kid with a Reiki master as my guide; I fly there because it's my imagination and I can.
