I'm a wanderer- I'm happiest when I'm on the road. On a beach in Mexico, beside a tiger in Thailand, heading to the mall in Dubai at 10pm and shopping till the stores close at 1am or waking up for a 5am sunrise in the Seychelles. I'm a happy person by nature. But too often, my happiness is determined by where I am. At home, I always have a sense of longing. I need to learn to be as happy at home as I am on holiday. To enjoy the fast pace and spontaneity of travel, but also appreciate the security and certainty of home. I've lived in London for years, but I still would make a terrible tour guide to a first time visitor.
I need to learn to be a tourist in my own town and always chase the light. After all, some people don't have homes.
Pray for Gaza.
Pray for our Nigerian girls still missing.
Pray for the world.
Be happy for your internet access to even read this post.
Be happy for your pillow at night.
Be happy for your eyesight and limbs.
If you woke up tomorrow with only what you thanked God for last night, what would you have?
So many people say to me on Instagram- 'OMG I wish I had your life'. And I just silently smile to myself. Everyone puts their best self on social media. When was the last time you saw an Instagram picture of a crying face with the caption 'I'm lonely'. Have you ever seen one? So many of us are lonely, it's probably an emotion everyone feels quite often. I can tell you for a fact that I was lonely last Friday night after my family traveled and I sat home alone working. You didn't see that on my Instagram and you will never see that on my Instagram. Because, where's the positivity in that? You never know what is really going on in people's lives. You don't know if those shoes were bought on credit with money the person really didn't have, or that beautiful face cries herself to sleep every night. Don't judge a life by a 4x4 picture. Don't judge a life, period. Love yours. Appreciate yours. You don't know how much of it you have left. Live your best days today.
This is as much a message to you, as it is to me.
