This is my life quote. 💖
For a long time, I thought of myself as an unhappy person inside a happy person's body. On the outside, I would smile, ALWAYS say yes, and do what I thought I should, or what I thought others wanted me to do. On the inside, I always felt anxious, resentful, guilty and utterly confused as to who I really was and what I really wanted. 💔
It's been a long hard journey for me but it's too long to explain it here. But today, I know what I want. I want to be happy. H A P P Y- without conditions. Not when someone likes me. Not when I have more money. Not when I lose weight or when I can fit into a smaller dress size. I. Am. Happy. Right. Now. 😍🙌🏼
Being happy isn't tied to someone or something outside of you. Being happy is a light that is INSIDE of you. Sometimes it's a candle flicker; sometimes it's a raging bonfire. It took me a long time to realize that I control both the fan and the flame.🔥
You can be happy despite difficult health battles you have struggled to overcome, and trying to HEAL yourself (Ginny, Sarah). You can be happy that you're always trying your very BEST, even when sleep deprived and body weary, because you know your children will grow up all too soon (Kat, Amanda, Manuela). You can be happy because every day, you have the COURAGE and work ethic to do what you love, and love what you do (Kellie, Joanna, Kenz, Neha, Sarah H.). You can be happy because you are thoughtful and make an effort to SUPPORT others (Ember, Amy, Kelly, Candace, Kaley, Denise).
To all these happy people.. and to so many more I have met since joining this amazing community less than a month ago.. from the bottom of my heart, thank you. 🙏🏼💞
Lots of love, Teresa. xo
