Who has noticed the theme in our society to what brings happiness? I observe that being a certain dress size, having the right hair style, clothing, shoes, car, house, job, mate and amount of money is going to do it for me. Actually it will for all of us.
**please notice that it is in fact a “one size fits all” solution out there**
How does that work? I mean really. We all can’t be size 0, blond, with straight hair and over 5’7”. You guys can’t all be over 6’3”, chiseled, and be lawyers that bring in six figure salaries. What about the Mc Mansion? Personally I have to say “no thank you”. Why? Have you ever tried dusting those cathedral ceilings? How about heating and cooling those bad boys? My ideal car is the Scion Xb. Sorry but it is. My current one is the 2005 model that looks very much like a black Cuisinart toaster on wheels. In a couple of years, if not sooner, I will get a newer one. It does everything I need and costs under $18K. Yes, that also disqualifies me in the ‘awesome” car category. I get that.
When I look at the above paragraph I discover that I am, obviously, a miserable human being. I am 5’6” and half. My hair is naturally curly and red. When I say red I mean various shades of red and being blond is kind of out because of my complexion. See if I go blond I look like an albino. Completely pale and that is “glow in the dark” pale. I will never be a size zero. It just won’t happen as I am a curvy gal. I mean in all reality I would have to swap out the natural DD’s or there would be a tailor in my basement working around the clock making my clothing. Plus I think I would fall over, a lot.
Do I believe that I am a miserable human being because I am me? No. What I have learned in the past year or so is that by ignoring the societal road map to happiness and being me = happy. See I am not made from a one size fits all cookie cutter mix. I am a human being who is an individual. This means that no one can tell me what is going to make my life full and happy. Only I can do that.
