How often have you thought or said, "I'm happy enough?"
What exactly does that mean? Does it mean you're happy enough to continue getting up going to a job you hate, but it pays the bills? Or are you "happy enough" to stay in a relationship because it's better than being alone? Or are you "happy enough" to continue to babysit for your grandchildren when you'd rather travel?
Before you know it, you find when you say "I'm happy enough" you feel a lump in your throat or your stomach hurts, or your knees ache. And sometimes when you're alone, you can't stop the tears.
Because you know "happy enough" is a lie.
When you recognize the lie, you're ready to change. You want to reclaim your happiness. Sure, you may have the same challenges but you face them, understand them, and avoid the detours away from happiness.
