The Bravest Thing

“I now see how

owning our story


and loving ourselves


through that process


is the bravest thing


that we will ever do.”

.

~Brené Brown

I may or may not be proud of what I did,
but I did it.
To own that story is to acknowledge
all sides of the coin,
good, bad and/or indifferent.
The past is neither love or hate and
I need to let it in the past.
Today begins a new story.
Today, I will do my best to be a better person.
Today, I know that I will love myself
so long as I choose to do the next right thing,
that action that will make this world a better place
for me being here.
Happiness is owning our own story.
Happiness is helping someone help themselves.

Happy Gratitude

“Happiness is

in itself


a kind of


gratitude.”

.
.
~Joseph Wood Krutch

.
The old attitude of gratitude.
So simple to say, yet many times so hard to practice.
For many negative, selfish, self-centered individuals
they have no idea of what we are even talking about.
It is an attitude, be happy.
It is an attitude, be grateful.
Happiness is a kind of gratitude.
Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
