Growing up people always told me that with age come wisdom and happiness.
I believe you can achieve both with time and life experiences.
Happiness is a state of mind. It makes its way from the inside towards the outside and when someone reaches that point it’s easy to tell that they are in fact “happy.”

I’ve struggled quite a bit with finding myself, a balance, a place in this world where I could truly feel like myself and just recently I finally started feeling like pieces were falling into place and my eager, restless spirit could finally pause and take a breath.
“You seem happy.” For some reason this sentence made me stop and think. Do I only ‘seem’ happy or am I actually happy? After spending so much energy searching for something, someone, anything that could and would make me reach that emotional state we all long for, I can finally say I have found some peace.
Just like every other person, I will be looking for a higher, better level of happiness throughout my life, because there is always something better, but for now I think I have found an emotional balance that I am going to grasp and hold on to until I can.
