I believe in happy…endings?

what it takes to have one

I have heard of too many ‘sad’, ‘unfortunate’, or ‘painful’ endings of stories. I don’t believe that misfortunate/pain/sadness is inevitable. It can be avoided if you make the right choices. The right choices are never the easy ones. In fact, I think a lot of long-term misfortunate/unhappiness occurs as a result of easy, mindless choices. Not resolving an early issue with a partner, not looking inwards enough, being too judgmental, being too insecure, wanting too much, not knowing what you want, and living in constant pursuit of that something that’ll give you your next pang of satisfaction. That’s all an illusion.

Life is much simpler, harder, and yet more pleasurable if you make the right choices. If your choices are not burdened by things you don’t really want but think that you should want. If you complicate your life by mindless decisions or brain-numbing paralysis, you’ll be stuck in an infinite loop of sadness and damnation.

Stop, Pause, Think, and Act. Think about what you want. Think about what you really really want. Think about what is at the heart of your existence. And then don’t make trade-offs. What you want will not be a place where you want to get to, it’ll be a state of being. It’ll be in the now. If you’re the way you want to be in the now, your life will take you where you want to be in the future. Don’t sacrifice your now for the future. Future never comes. Time is an illusion. Be weightless. Be light. Be where you need to be now.
