W.O.W. #21 – pursuit

I can’t believe how fast these Wednesdays sneak up on me! I barely get a weekly quote posted, let alone anything else! I’ve been busy with a brand new puppy…and a new, exciting website. Here’s our puppy! Her name is Oakley and she is 9 weeks old today. She loves to play and especially loves to lick sweaty feet. Good thing her mom’s a runner 🙂 This picture is after we wore her out from a long afternoon of playing!

As for my new website…it’s been taking up all of my mind and time outside of my full-time job, and I can’t wait to share it with you all! Keep your eyes open in the next few weeks for the launch on Facebook and this blog! With all of this change and growth and excitement, the following quote seems appropriate for this week.

“If it’s both terrifying and amazing then you should definitely pursue it.”

W.O.W. # 16 – Happiness

20130729-194805.jpg

 

Sometimes it feels like our world is filled with the “pursuit of happiness”.

Whatever makes you happy.

I’m all about being happy. In fact – I try to do something each day that makes me happy. Maybe it’s turning on Full House re-runs while I eat my breakfast. Maybe it is calling a friend just to talk. Maybe it’s moving dinner out to the patio during sunset.

What is tough to remember sometimes, though, is happiness isn’t the end goal. It’s not about the constant effort to “pursue”. We should find happiness throughout all of the ups and downs, not being blind to the journey. Sometimes we get so focused on our goals, our dreams, our maybe-one-days that we miss out on the perfectly happy life we have right now.

Some Words for Wednesday…

Happiness-is-not-a-state
