A little bit about me:
I grew up as an average kid in a happy home. An annoyingly naïve adolescent, who went to college (because that’s what you do after high school) where I met my best friends, married one of them, got a job (because that’s what you do after college), got a dog, and bought a house of my own.
White picket fence included.
My path did not follow that exact order or come without it’s roadblocks of course. But ultimately, I arrived in the same place. I’m living the American Dream, and for now this is exactly where I want to be.
Except I don’t completely support the classic idea of the American dream. Our unalienable rights are flawed. “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Why do we have to pursue? Chase, hunt, and search? This is one of the ways in which I think our Founding Fathers got it wrong. Proposing that we should spend our lives looking for something that is often times right in front of us.
It has taken me a while to get here. To determine exactly what this blog is “About”. Because it is about a lot of things, and sometimes it’s about nothing at all. It’s a story about my day, or about your day (Be My Guest), and it’s a simple YouTube video that makes me laugh. (For more on this read my first post Be Happy).
This blog is an outlet for sharing happiness, and the trials and tribulations that come with it. Seeing the positive in everyday life. Taking the time to appreciate what you have. Noticing timely coincidences. The happy accidents. Creating your own silver lining when you have to, and consciously choosing to be happy.
Since I have yet to see solid evidence that we get more than one shot at this life, I’m going to give this one all I’ve got. I refuse to spend my lifetime on an endless quest for something better. I’m happy now. This blog is me, just your average adult, sharing my story of how I’m living my dream. “Life, Liberty and
the pursuit of Happiness.”
