I love life


Life can be so complicated at times… but not really.
It’s so simple. We just complicate it ourselves.

I’m reminded of this when I went for an after-class drink at a Thai fast-food place that I love. It was as always full of Thais. All women, all thoroughly enjoying themselves, chatting loudly in Thai.
What did they have at that moment?

  1. Good friends
  2. Good food
  3. Good drinks

That’s it.

That’s not that complicated. Nothing in that scenario involved mortgages, careers, government bureaucracy, why this smartphone does something in this unintuitive way or what that other woman was wearing who walked past.

Happiness is always right here, right now. The barrier for all but those in the direst situations is right there within us. It’s in all those complexities that we layer on top of the real world. The present. The moment.

I am thankful for those happy women at that moment reminding me of that. 🙂
