Find Happiness Within
I once heard a great quote that still sticks with me every morning when I wake up, every night when I go to sleep, and every decision I make. It was, per usual, by an ancient Buddhist Monk. The Monk was asked what life is. He responded, “Life is suffering, to find happiness within such suffering is to live.”
We ALL have our problems both internal and external. It doesn’t matter where you came from, what house you grew up in, the color of your skin or the shape of your body. I know kids that have everything: money, cars, women and looks - you name it. And they still suffer from systematic depression and suicidal thoughts, in which, they allow other people, places, and things to control their happiness.
Skyblue is controlling your own happiness. Skyblue is that unique feeling you get when you do what truly makes you happy. It could be riding bikes, making sandwiches, jumping out of planes, crocheting, bending, skating, jumping off cliffs, or writing books. The point is - it’s yours to do and love, yours to own and cherish, and yours to clutch onto when the world around you begins to spin too fast.
Happiness is literally the only thing we can control in this crazy world. Relationships will grow and die like trees in a forest. Materials will always contain the same properties. And time will never stop disappearing in the blink of an eye. Happiness, however, that is ours forever. So please, do what makes you happy, because nothing else will feel as good.
