I am determined to be happy everyday of my life, without apology. I feel happy when I am able to do what I want, when I want , where I want, with whom I want, whenever I want. Sometimes, I just get into my vehicle and drive with no real destination. I simply like discovering new places, new parks and enjoying the best that nature has to offer.
I spent the majority of my life working hard to achieve success and believing that when I make time to have fun, I must be wasting time. In recent times I have discovered, I am actually enjoying my life and the success I worked hard to achieve. I also discovered, the more fun I have, the more creative I am. I now make time to regularly take in the view, meditate, do yoga, take long walks, have dinner at the park, travel and pray more. It’s a different life and I must admit, its not for everybody. However, it is absolutely liberating to know that you can do what the “Puck” you want, when you want. I no longer get attached to things, just the people I love and the ones who love me.
I recently had to explain to a friend that my property is different from my home. My home is in my heart and that is wherever my family is. I buy property to sell and make a profit. Period‼️ None of us will be on this planet forever, so make sure you have a good time.
So many people talk about life will not be the same for them after 2020. Really, what have you changed about your life since then? I have a greater desire to enjoy the freedom I was blessed with. The freedom of speech, freedom to live where I want, when I want; freedom to eat what I want and to buy what I want and travel where I want. You are truly happy when you have the freedom to do what you want. Happiness cannot be achieved without the freedom to have your desired outcome.
So many of us take our freedom for granted until it is taken away from us. It is the most beautiful feeling in the world when you are able to “Live the life you want, and love the life you live.” So many people have the freedom to find happiness, but they are afraid to do what is right for them. You feel me
