We say we want to be happy
but when we finally feel it, we find it difficult
to accept it as reality and fear that we are missing out
on something that will make us happier. Like a foot on an open
door, we cling to the familiar doubts
that won’t budge and keeps us from embracing
the possibility of becoming genuinely happy.
We find it hard to let go of chances, as if
they are the key to life’s mysteries.
Without realizing that the determination to stick with a choice
from among the myriads of options is the key
to living happily.
