Good Morning All
Well Spring is surely here finely..........Happy Easter to each of you or perhaps Happy Spring.  :-)
I thought it was time to take a look at ourselves and think about a question today so here you go.
Today's Question:
Have you ever been surprised that something you expected would make you very happy, didn’t – or vice versa?

That's a good question, Kitt.

I've found in my own life that when I've strived for things that fit the 'standard' formula for happiness (i.e. marriage, lucrative career, busy social calendar), I've been disappointed once I arrived there. I finally realized that I was working towards certain models of these things that were externally-based, rather than looking inside myself and seeing what was really right for me. I spent too much time in my younger years trying to fit the mold, instead of trying to understand my own needs, desires, and sources of personal fulfillment. Maybe that's one of the advantages of aging.....we come to know ourselves better, and to feel secure in doing what is best for us.
