The Daily Practice
How I'm Feeling
I'm off of the pursuit of happiness. I can pursue kindness, compassion, understanding, patience, and even compromise - however, the foundation of these, at least for me, are rooted in personal familiarity with suffering, and wanting to spare others from suffering. Should it come to me that I am provided with love and comfort and loyalty from a partner in life (my definition of happiness) - I would gladly open the door (albeit still slowly). But opening a door to yourself isn't pursuing - it is the exact opposite, it's waiting. So I've discovered that I don't know how to pursue happiness. I'm really only know who to wait - while I suffer and pursue other things.
My Primary Goal of the Day
I'm having what could possibly be the most important presentation during this stage of my life tomorrow (Friday). I'm going to concentrate and prepare for it.
What I'm Reading
“Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder.”
