I have come to realize that we are all hiding the very same secret, that we are completely and utterly unhappy. But what cause do we have for such a thought when we are blessed with so much. Maybe that is the great challenge in realizing that no matter how much we consume and achieve we are left with the same feeling of emptiness.
I thought that I was the only one as everyone else seemed to go through life knowing exactly what they are meant to be doing. The fortunate and unfortunate truth is that we are all a bit clueless. Happiness and joy is an active process much like a muscle to be exercised. I seem to have forgotten my gym pass for some time because I have allowed unhappiness to build up.
To choose life and love is like having to get on the treadmill in order to pull ourselves back to health and balance. No one can run us to a great body or a clear mind. It may be cold and grey outside, but the darkness of the city will not rob the light that glows within the soul.
