The first 6 years of my life, my family lived in a 129 square feet apartment with no bath.
You might think my life was miserable back then, but the truth is I was happy.
Growing up, I experienced a series of sweeping economic changes.
I desired more and more and I got more and more.
I was equally happy.
We all believe fulfilling desires will make us happy, but I find the opposite is true.
Happy makes our dreams fulfilled.
We have to find a way to feel happy first.
It’s not about pretending to be happy when we are not.
It’s about expanding our view.
The crystal talisman my mom gave me was my secret.
Over the years, it became my connection to my inner wisdom.
It served as my escape to have happier thoughts when situations were tough.
I couldn’t explain why, but happy caused my world to morph.
Happy brought me synchronicity.
Happy attracted more happy.
Slowly I learned to choose happy no matter what,
because happy is the goal anyway.
I understand it now.
Nothing happens by chance.
When we get in touch with true wisdom, we see our world from a broader perspective.
When we can see more, we understand why, then we see joy no matter where we are.
My mom taught me the life secrets through an object of art.
I want to do the same.
