Screen SHOT - This is your LIFE. by ANG.



Life is simply a SCREEN SHOT.
one. 
after another.
captured. 

 ....so you don't EVER forget how much HAPPY is possible.

I am sitting here at my kitchen counter.

LOOKING at MY LIFE.
my SCREEN SHOTS.

feeling. the. LOVE.
for all the people. and happy. 
and hardship. and craziness.

Screen Shot #1.

Screen Shot #2.


Our SCREEN SHOTS write our Story.

SIMPLE REALIZATION...
all the tears, all the moments of despair, all the times you felt like you could not go on....

lead.
to. 
your screenshots.
the TIMES in your life YOU NEVER want to FORGET.

the end to each chapter.
OR MAYBE THE BEGINNING - 
Either way...
THESE small screenshots - THEY are your story.

When I look at my photos - I see 100% happy. 
YOU DO TOO.
right?

however....behind the scenes
JUST LIKE YOU...
MY HAPPY can be elusive. 
life can sometimes offer - NOT SO MUCH HAPPY.

.
I've been stepped on {not really, but it felt like it} 
KNOCKED down by a simple mis-step.
 STOLEN from...{did they REALLY just take all my ideas}  
LIED to - SEE YA LATER HEART

threatened from time to time.
not to mention a little {or a lot} crushed.

oh and did i tell you about the heart break.
the endless tears.
the manic moments.

and then there was this time....i wanted it all to just be kinda over.
ya know?
blah. blah. blah. blah.
RIGHT?

you don't REALLY want to know all of this.
...and guess what - I don't really want to tell you my SAD STORIES in any great detail.

but.....seriously....HAVE YOU been there?

OF COURSE YOU HAVE!

we ALL have TRAGIC, crazy, potentially devastating times in our lives.

WE ALL have BEHIND THE SCENE CRAZINESS....

The FOCUS we should choose avidly is WHERE our SAD STORIES have TAKEN us.

it's NOT ABOUT being PERFECT...
so...
CUT yourself some slack.
THIS is LIFE.
You pull yourself out of the DARK to find your way back.

...and as you travel to a better place,
ACCEPT with OPEN ARMS every RUN of HAPPY life offers.
...cause you did the work.
YOU brought yourself through.

...and persevered.

if you have ONE PERFECT moment.
from time to time....
or even more OFTEN than normal....
EMBRACE it. 
capture it.
love it. 
hold onto it.
be grateful for it.
NEVER apologize for HAPPY.
you DANG WELL EARNED IT!

didn't ya?
YES. YOU. DID.

... in understanding THIS PROCESS of UPS and DOWNS...
we get a WHOLE LOT STRONGER - 
AND
THAT elusive HAPPY LIFE SHINES THROUGH a little brighter.
a little more often.

YOU EXPECT IT.
you REALIZE it.
RIGHT WHEN IT is happening.

which leads to 
MORE GRATITUDE.
 MORE HOPE.
MORE HAPPY.
peace
&
woosah.

GOSH - you REALLY deserve it.
just sayin'.
