Life is Like a Puzzle

Dear Beautiful People,

Life is like a puzzle.

We are constantly searching for answers on how to put it all together.  Each piece of the puzzle represents life experience – victory, adversity, triumph, failure (YOU are not a failure but sometimes life doesn’t go as planned), happiness, disappointment, clarity, confusion, growth, new direction, personal development, a friendship, a relationship, a character trait, a choice, a consequence… the list goes on and on.

We don’t always get to choose the pieces.  However, every piece of the puzzle gives meaning to our lives and prepares us to live out our purpose.  Hmmm… how do you define purpose?

So walk in love, joy, compassion, kindness and peace.  Keep creating your masterpiece… your life puzzle.  You are worth it.  You matter.  You are beautiful.

P.S. Don’t be bitter.  Life gets sweeter…that’s what I tell myself, hah!  Keep living…  🙂

Peace,

YaKima

Searching for Happiness

Many people are searching for happiness.  The interesting thing about the search is — it is never-ending.  Happiness is not a big catch, pot of gold, grand slam or one-time thing.

The world gifts us with people, love, energy, colors, art, music, nature, thoughts and faith that grant us permission to live and breathe happiness — yet we are always searching.  Maybe it is because we are waiting for this euphoric or big moment.  In actuality, happiness is here for us to experience in the “moments of life” with each breath we take.

Happiness is an attitude, a way of thinking that allows us to see a glimpse of light in a dark situation.

Let’s explore the game of baseball…  For instance, if a baseball player hits a home run — he is happy along with the coaches, team and fans.  They all celebrate!  However, they are continuously looking forward to the next big play.  In between each play there are setbacks, disappointment, frustration (striking out, an out, foul balls, a call they don’t agree with).  LIFE ADJUSTMENTS!  No matter what happens… the team continues to play and the coaches continue to coach while embracing the “moments of happiness” in each inning.

Therefore, we have to continue in the game of life.  Embrace your happiness!  Embrace your family and friends happiness!  Embrace a stranger’s happiness!

I urge you to try your very best to not miss the “moments of happiness” while you are continuously searching.  Learn to find happiness instead of just searching for it throughout life.

Bask in Happiness Beautiful People!
