Hello Happiness

These are the magical moments that define and defy our lives. I had finished a long day of an early morning meeting, intense exam and evening class when all I wanted to do was go home.

Instead I made my way to the law library for another late night of work. Then I stopped in my tracks and remembered my experiment of cultivating paradise (happiness within). I realized it was not that urgent and I should walk home.

I hummed a French tune and looked in shop windows for my future boutique. I sat on a bench in the harbor breathing through a lovely meditation to the moon. I walked on slowly making certain not to rush and to take in the night and that was when I found a spark of light. Life doesn’t wait for us so catch the chance before it passes you by.

Sitting and listening to the ducks chattering through the night.

Light is all around but also within.

I love these boots.

Almost home.

Almost home.
