As I sat and stared at the water; the sun on my skin the wind in my hair, I smiled from a place deep within my heart, a smile that reached to the depths of my soul.
The word contentment feels too average a word to describe my mood, some normal days need a stronger word to express the moment, to capture the joy and turn it into a masterpiece of words to be reflected upon at a later date.
Maybe the meaning of life, that priceless thing or event that everyone is searching for is nothing more than a series of moments. Mornings in the sun, time by the water, a few hours of bliss to remind you of how wonderful life is.
If that is the meaning of life then I embrace it wholeheartedly. Why search for something bigger when these small moments can mean so much?
All the money in the world can not buy the happiness that a morning at the beach can give me.
All the people in the world can not make me feel more amazing inside than how I feel being by the water in the fresh air.
Sure my friends and loved ones are my everything, but you need to find your own way to discover happiness and feel it deep inside and not rely on others for your happiness.
This I know for sure.
Anyway as I sit in a room I have created for myself that makes me feel happy, alive, and peaceful I type this unconscious stream of joyful thoughts.
I type without thinking, I type and I smile as my heart opens and the words flow freely.
I write to capture my mood, to turn my hours into a moment, and my morning into a memory.
