Happiness...


Happiness...

"All the happiness you ever find lies in you." Anonymous
"Happiness is acceptance." Anonymous

If you put these 2 quotes together you come up with:
"Happiness is accepting yourself." Kellzie

The pursuit of happiness is something every person has been involved in at one time or another. We look for it, we search for it. It seems like we never find it. It might be because we are looking in the wrong place. Happiness IS inside of us and it IS in accepting ourselves.

I am so much happier since I have accepted myself. Yes, I have made some changes, tweaking myself and making sure I was living up to my potential. We should always seek to better ourselves, but it doesn't mean that we are not accepting the person we are. Sometimes we just have to accept that we will never be 95 pounds or that we don't look like Angelina Jolie. It doesn't mean we can't be happy about who we are.

Happiness comes from giving our best and knowing we have. Happiness is wanting the things we have. It is sharing smiles with others. It is loving our life even if it isn't perfect. Imperfections often add spice and variety. Embrace them instead of despising them.

My name is Kelley and I am happy with me!
