Those that are so caught up in chasing the “American Dream” are so distracted by the journey to “happiness” that in fact, they miss the truth that they are indeed not moving toward happiness at all, but rather moving away from it. Happiness isn’t about acquiring more “stuff”, but rather acquiring contentment and satisfaction within oneself. The road to riches will leave you with more of a mess to clean up, which really only leaves you needing the rags that you were running from in the first place. Personally, I’m tired of standing on the platform of dreams and goals in this life, afraid to jump. I’m ready to jump with full faith that my parachute is going to deploy and I will float gently to my landing. I’m tired of wearing this parachute of fear, which only deploys destruction and deceit. I choose to put on faith, jump, and enjoy the ride. Are you?
