After the Rain…Chasing Your Happiness

Mid-week. Yea.. so it’s wednesday already and the week has been so nutty that I feel beat down and tired as if it was Friday!! I so wish it was Friday… Anyway, today the sun is shinning and the 30 degree, sleeting-freezing rain that we had yesterday, at the end of April like mother nature thinks it’s still freakin winter… or something… is all over!! It’s slightly warm, with blue skies, practically cloudless, and a light lovey breeze. That is my Mid-West weather report for the day…

My reflection today is inspired by a conversation I had last night with my wonderful girlfriend, Hastywords, who I’m giving hella shout-out’s all day here!! She and I were talking about how important it is to wake up in the morning, smile just for you, and do what you gotta do to chase your happiness!!

I have found myself lost, so lost, in the stresses I have facing me that… I am forgetting about all the things I really really want!! I have put my happiness to the side, and that’s what we were talking about… that’s no bueno!! Don’t do that nonsense!!

Do not put your happpiness to the side!!

If you are not happy, really NOT happy on the inside, then you’re gonna have a hell of a time making someone else happy. I know from personal experience because I have been battling a bunch of things and happiness is kind of a joke to me right now, but this is totally and completely my fault, and as a result, the closest person to me has been effected by it.

Remember that you always come first in your life. If your ducks are not in a row, then you find your life elements off balance, and that can throw other things out of whack. For the time you work, also make time for fun and things that are rewarding to all your hard work. If you are all work and no play, your happiness will be a problem area for you.. it has been for me.

So, I am trying to make room, and time, in my life for more fun things, like taking some fun classes, yoga, really writing my book, I mean really writing it.. and seeing friends here in the city. All winter long it has been work, bills, debt, stress, blah blah blah… no wonder my happiness is like, “HEY!! Why have you abandon me??”

I hope everyone is chasing their happiness in life… it is so important to not think that there is all the time in the world, because time is so precious, and it goes by real fast. So go chase your happiness today!!

Have a super great day Tryst Family!! XoXo, Jen

Tryst Thought: There is a certain outlook that another can give you on a situation that you are struggling with. I like to think that I have all the answers… but I got such a good perspective last night from talking with Miss Hasty.. and I am go glad I got her!! Good friends that step up to the plate when you are down are not the kind of frienships you get in everyone. So cherish those who have your back… and by all means, have their backs when they need you!!

Karma – What goes around, comes around… you will get what you sow!!

LOVE!!

One Two Three

One, Two, Three

 

I am a complicated spirit

Yet, I find in all my philosophy

I am more definable than most

I am not ordinary, or boring, or standard

I was built with many colors

I have things that can spark a flame

Resulting in an emotional fire

Yes, my deepest feeling can burn me badly

I feel things more intensely inside

I get quite lost and curious of

Those who don’t seem to feel at all

 

I can be a million smiles

The most joyous soul you see all day

This happiness is energy in me

Visible to those who come my way

 

But if my path, in the course of my day                  

Crosses with something that causes me pain

Inside it hits me like a million blades

Damaging my heart like a hurricane rain

 

Then there is the side, I keep tucked far away

The side that I protect from anyone but me

It’s sensitive and sweet, but dark and broken

It’s the side that I don’t let anyone see…

 

That, I feel, is my one, two, three

And even though the energy may shift

I understand the moments I experience

As I believe they are my virtuous gifts.
