I do not want to be happy all the time. That would deny all of what life is.
What I want is to be fully alive in every moment.
This is not easy to do. Sometimes trauma triggered has us alive - but in the past, reliving it. Sometimes trauma triggered has us dead, in the now.
Sometimes we are so sore that the moment has too much pain. And we have to protect ourselves.
Being fully alive and utterly open to every moment takes work. And I know that work will bring more ease, balance, and congruence into my being.
