happiness has such a negative connotation in the christian world.
joy is the sustainable thing and happiness is unreliable.
i believe in happiness, though.
she is the outcome of joy. the sister to joy.
much needed and sought after.
and she is attainable.

i read this blog today on happiness.
( to be exact)

it gives 7 things that can keep you from happiness.
and i agree.

1. aiming for perfection
2. living in a sea of negative voices
3. getting stuck in the past and future too much.
4. comparing yourself and your life to others and their lives.
5. focusing on the negative details in life.
6. limiting life because you believe the world revolves around you.
7. overcomplicating life.

something great

it's a new season.
time to move forward.
i can feel it.
i can feel the laziness in my bones.
can feel the desperate attempts to cling to comfort and ease.
can feel it so deep.
but i can also feel the stirring.
the restlessness of staying still.
staying the same.
never growing. never moving.
it makes one feel a bit crazy inside.

time to move forward.
it's scary.
tiring to even think of.
but so good.

because i want to be a part of something great.
something set apart.
something that is different.
something that gives up the good for something great.
