Milk Bubble Baths and finding the Necessity of Happiness

I am the queen of compromise.
A true poster child for
always give a little more than you take.
Embodiment of nurturing, selflessness,
and unconditional, enduring love.
I get lost sometimes;
isn’t it nice to know
that everyone feels that way at times –
in a sort of someone GETS it kind of way?
I forget to practice what I preach,
I slip up for a moment,
but I always catch myself
and that’s what it is about.
Cultivating awareness.

This brings me to my latest A-ha Moment.
I was enjoying a milk bubble bath and
re-reading Danielle LaPorte’s Fire Starter Sessions
for the 4th (maybe?) time and something !clicked!
I rounded to the metrics of ease
and her opening pushes you
to reassess your definition of ease.
She asks: What if you only did what was easy?
I stopped to pick out other things in my life
I need to redefine.

What if my (your) happiness was a necessity?
By extension wants knead seamlessly into needs.
How would I (you) live life
and reexamine constant compromise
if my (your) happiness was a nonnegotiable thing?
Short and sweet – ponder it.
