Don’t go chasing to harvest happiness from afar when you haven’t even bothered to plant and water it where you are. Jacqueline
Your happiness is always where you kept it. It’s not acquired through materialism and it’s not what happens to you.
It may be absent on some days when the going is rough, but always know that it’s there in the midst of chaos, pain, sadness, failure, success, peace and all the ups and downs of life.
We harp so much on happiness that sometimes this sells the idea that we have to be in a euphoric state, floating and gliding through life that those who don’t feel that way are left wondering if something is wrong and a cycle to buy happiness commences which only leaves the purchaser shortchanged.
Accepting that it’s okay to be just okay is a key to contentment.
Growing your happiness will never be a destination that you get to and all of a sudden everything is just as perfect as you want it, but a mindset that you build from within and know that despite every situation you will remain in charge of your state of being.

I knew that I would run out of fuel living as someone else, so, the best shot I’ve got at living is to live as me – Jacqueline
The best peace that we can give ourselves is to come to terms with who we truly are, embrace it and move forward from there.
Our life is intertwined with sweet and bitter moments, sometimes the bitterness tends to erode the sweetness, but I’ve learnt and still learning that we can enrich our bitter moments and turn it into fodder for sweeter moments.
Don’t stay in that categorised box where others have chosen to keep you. Liberate yourself, cut lose and live fully. You are more than a label.
