The Joy of Living

“So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.” – 12 Step Prayer Book 

How much of my misery was self inflicted because my expectations of others fell short? How much of my precious time on this beautiful planet was wasted by being disappointed in others? For this reason I now approach my relationships differently. These days I’m grateful for what others add to my life and don’t hang my hat on who I think they should be or their promises. I simply take what I like and leave the rest to them. If I determine they’re not really adding joy to my life, I let them go there way and move on. This allows me to celebrate life with others that want to share in the joy of living. Today I’m surrounded by people that truly add to my happiness. Just one more reason why ILML!
