Heidi’s Happiness

Maybe happiness is this: not feeling like you should be elsewhere,
doing something else, being someone else.
Isaac Asimov

As I sit in front of my computer, staring blankly at the page, trying to figure out what to write, my mind goes from all kinds of thoughts to being blank. I’m feeling pressure to get something profound written, something that will just fly off my fingers onto the page and yet, I feel pressure, too much, and I’m pushing back rather than allowing the flow to happen.

So, I decided to simply start writing from where I was and I find how amazing it is when I begin to simply start typing, words and ideas begin to flow.

How often in our lives we feel stuck, stifled and in a corner of belief of no choices. I’ve learned there are always choices. Sometimes they aren’t what would be our ideal but they are choices nonetheless. Many times, I’ve found, by just making a choice and moving forward, the flow of opportunities exponentially grow thereby giving me more options than I realized I had.

Are you trying to make decisions and not feeling like you have any choices? Or the choices that are in front of you aren’t the ideal? Take a moment, no, really, take out that sheet of paper or open a word document. Start writing out worst case scenarios, then start writing out the best case scenarios, somewhere in between is your answer. By the way, there is no reason why the best case scenario can’t be a reality!
