ISSA BIG MOOD, SIS

Hey friends,

I’ve struggled with happiness for so long. I know I sound like a broken record, but life hasn’t worked in my favor.  A lot of bad stuff happened, but also a lot of good stuff happened.

  • I fell in love.
  • I’ve tried different types of cuisines (KBBQ to be specific).
  • I’ve lived on my own.
  • My little brother was born.
  • I learned how to drive.
  • I met so many incredible people!
  • I participated in an Asian Ancestral Ceremony.
  • I started my career.
  • I LAUNCHED this fucking blog.

Even though, those are all incredible moments, I just remember being sad through all of them. I didn’t/don’t know how to live in the moment and that’s my biggest regret. I was so focused on my end goal, I forgot about THE journey.

Emotions are temporary. I’m happy about my outfit, annoyed at my coworker, angry that Starbucks put ice in my coffee when I asked them not to, stressed about my deadlines, nervous about my date later, etc.

Happiness is an just an emotion. It’s not a destination. I want to be more positive. I want to create. I want to be more connected to my true-self. I want inner peace.

Yo, the sun is shining. It’s a beautiful day out. My sister delivered coffee to my room. I have a job. I have dinner plans with a friend I haven’t seen in a while. I have a roof over my head. I have an awesome collection of shoes, family, and friends.

Life is really good. One could even say I’m #thriving.

So what about this blog? You’re just going to have to wait and see.

Thanks for reading. I love you all so much.

~till next time.
