after all of that intention setting, self realization and the want for happiness i realized something. i'm a little scared to loose the happiness i've cultivated. i hold on to so much expectation. in result of that the moment i'm in is lost because my thoughts are free radical. i'd like to say i focus inwards mainly, but a lot of it happens externally and that is all done because i see what i want in situations, people, places in time versus how am i contributing to situations, communicating to people that are a part of my life and the places i am in. it's interesting how we have our "expectations" and what our true reality is.

life isn't easy, but no one said it would be. i have so much faith in the idea that our happiness is governed by choice. we choose the people we surround ourselves with. we choose the food we eat. we choose the jobs we go to everyday. no one put us here except ourselves. there are a few exceptions when nature unpredictably gives us something to deal with, but it's always our choice to adapt and move forward. thats life. sometimes its good sometimes it's bad, but finding yourself in the middle of it is what makes our lives so beautiful.

two days ago it snowed in colorado. although i'm not a big fan of snow, it has been really pretty to walk in and get cozy indoors. snow is a sign of opportunity so it's funny how it coincided with the new year approaching. i cried all night to be honest with you guys, but it was only because i released something that i was holding on to. recognizing your emotions is the first step to the healthier you. in 2011's quest for the better version of myself it's also my intention to find stillness and the genuine 100% authentic me.
