So How DO I live???

I have spent a good amount of time thinking about my last post. About how I don’t really “LIVE”.  And the goal of my DBT group is to “have a life worth living”.

So HOW do I live? How do I go out and find happiness, how do I find joy?  I think I have something like a sleep mask over my eyes.  Not only can I not see what’s right in front of my face, I can’t see far enough to find things I enjoy.

I was going to make this post a lot longer, talking about all the things I “used” to enjoy.  All the things that helped me live.  But the more I thought about the things I lost, the tighter I felt blinded from seeing joy.

This, I need to figure out.

  1. It is a choice everyday. To make small decisions toward understanding your happy. For me, I am never just happy. But when I find peace and have a clear mind I have feelings of happiness. The key is finding small things everyday and then when you figure out what floats your boat, you do more of it. Surround yourself with good reads, good sounds, good vibes and then when you capture a smile, a happy feeling, take note. Do as much of that as you can to fuel your soul and before you know it there will be more and more of those moments. It isn’t a bad life, there are bad things in it. Define and separate the two. xo
