FYI: This post is pretty random.. and all over the place.. just random thoughts that entered my brain today. And for these reasons, I'm linking up here with one of my favorite bloggers for Random Wednesday.
This post by Megan got me thinking.. about all of the negative things that we can so easily be wrapped up in.. and alternatively, how easily those negatives can be removed from our lives.
Since getting married and moving to Hawaii, my life has simplified a lot. I'm not sure that it was intentional or if it was even due to marriage or the move, but it happened and I'm glad. Life has been less complicated and I've felt so much more content.
One of the many things that changed is friendships. I've obviously lost touch with a lot of "friends". Some of them were guy friends who I guess feel uncomfortable being friends with a married girl.. some relationships dwindled because of the distance. It's funny how things like that happen.
I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason.
There's someone in my life that is always surrounded by drama. It's like she searches for negative people and negative situations and tries to become closely involved with them. And then she wonders why she's unhappy. I just want to shake her. I want to tell her that she deserves better. I want to tell her that life doesn't have to be that way. I want to tell her that she can choose happiness.
Why can't we pinpoint the negative aspects of our lives and remove them? Does it really have to be more complicated than that?
Why can't we choose to surround ourselves with people who will lift us up?
Why can't we choose happiness?
Here's to 2013.. and choosing happiness.
