Happiness is not given nor is it earned. Happiness must be discovered and sometimes it just needs to be acknowledged. My entire life has been a consistent search for happiness. The search continues as I go through all the experiences of this lifetime, though I’ve considered giving up, I am proud to say that I made it this far. With the help of loved ones and even a few strangers, I have found that I am doing much better than I previously was and I’m grateful. To be honest, I never thought I’d live to see my 20th birthday and to know that I’m still alive and breathing gives me hope that maybe I’m doing something right. I know this journey is far from over and the end isn’t in sight just yet, but I will continue to pick up the positive vibes that life will present to me. After all, what is life but the Pursuit of Happiness?
