Day 19 (30 Day Happiness Challenge)

Posted on August 19, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Good Afternoon Bodhisattvas of the Earth!!!

Today is Day 19 of our "30 Day Happiness Challenge" and today I had a coffee date with myself and I saw a young woman that seem like she was having a hard time and I went up to her and asked her if she was ok...

She said "no" and my coffee date with myself now had a plus one... Of course she told me what was wrong with her world and I told her what was wrong with mine. Now...as a Buddhist, I feel the obstacles in my life are placed there to change the things that I need to change in myself. So instead of fighting these obstacles, I've learned to be a back seat driver and let the universe drive me to my destination in peace. So I honestly don't believe anything is wrong with my life, I am where I am suppose to be at all times.

Nonetheless, it was now time for me to go to my appointment, and I said my good byes...by this time the young woman was now laughing instead of crying. She gave me a hug and said "when I get as old as you I hope I am that smart"

Now I'm crying...I'm not old...I'm still in the 35-40 box...but nonetheless..I took the time to make time... and I brightening someone's day...And that's what made me happy today...
