"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

In my lifelong pursuit of happiness I have learned that the more I lower the volume on those other voices in my head shouting their crazy expectations at me, the happier I am. The truer I am to myself, the more I listen my own true voice, the lighter, more liberated I feel.
Lately I have been working harder at identifying stuff that weighs me down and declaring my own independence from said stuff. And guess what? Not only do I feel better, happier, I lost six pounds!!! I literally feel lighter, no kidding. This is truly something to celebrate!
