I'm in the pursuit of happiness.


Life is full of choices.
it's absolutely beautiful that way.
There are so many things that are out of our control.
but then there are those little things called decisions.
To decide to compromise, to decide to be happy, 
decide to not let it bother you, decide to accept where you are.
To literally "love the skies you are under".

Then there are those amazing moments life affords you, blesses you with.
amazing moments of clarity that you have if you slow down enough.
Things become so clear, things start to make sense
if only for a moment.

Don't compromise, embrace it, all of it.
don't just be happy, pursue it.

This post dedicated to my love, my mother who tells me on a regular basis that life is always greener on the other side. Things are not always greener over here. Life is still life. But I'll love it just the same and look for green patches when I can.
