How did you Get Here? How did you Become Happy?

It takes total vulnerability to ask, "how did you get here? How did you become happy?"

That's what my friend asked as he sat beside me with a sadness that swallowed me up.

My knee-jerk reaction was to say, "you do things that make you happy." But, after a good night's sleep, I realized the answer was easier, yet, so much more difficult than that.

You have to make a choice. You have to consciously choose happiness over sadness, every single day.

I love this person deeply, and the hardest thing for me to ever do, was to do nothing.

When a person is unhappy for a reason, a season or a lifetime, only they can help themselves.

I sometimes feel that unhappy people stay unhappy because it is so familiar, so normal. It's like a best friend that has always sat beside them.

Fear of doing what is necessary, like making that choice, sometimes feels awkward and unnatural. It is! But, you must make the choice if you want things to change...

You must choose to be happy every day, until that "friend" who has sat beside you your entire life, stands up, reaches for your hand, and says, "Come, let's be happy together."

with true love....
