Life is Like a Coin....
of the best decisions we ever made was to define our own happiness. We
grew up with "the world" telling us what we would need to do to be
happy. Do well in school, get a good job, buy a nice car, live in a nice
house, fill that house with nice things, etc. We chased that carrot,
and we were not happy. We were stressed.
So we gave up on
that. We traded making money for making memories. We traded being like
others for just being ourselves. And I wouldn't trade the happiness this
has brought us for anything in the world.
You only live once. This is it, your one life. Are you happy with it?
