This photo below displays a special moment on one of the happiest days of my life. It makes me smile to look back and remember the glowing feeling that I felt that day. However, the picture does not show are emotions from the days leading up to that special day. The stressful planning that went into that day made it feel like I would never arrive at that moment of ease and happiness.
As we navigate the challenges of our daily lives, it is important to remember that our special moment is not too far away. We must work tirelessly to arrive at that happy place even before the special moment arrives. Prepare your heart, attitude, and disposition for the happy place. Smile as if you are already there. If I could give myself encouragement during the days leading up to this moment, it would be: "smile sweetie, your happy time is coming soon." When is the last time you smiled? What makes you happy?
"Smile in the mirror. Do that every morning and you will start to see a big difference in your life." Yoko Ono
