100 Days of Happiness (53/100)

Hoda Kotb wrote a new book.  I was reading about it today and the topic seems too close for comfort for me these day.  The book is called “Where We Belong”.  Interesting, you’re curious, right?  Me too.


I think at a broad level it’s about people….who have summoned their bravery…to take an unexpected path in the journey of their lives, somehow.  Something Hoda said in an interview today really caught my attention and it has stuck with me all day.    (I’m paraphrasing here), but she said something like …….”that sometimes our lives…just as they are….are the path of least resistence…and we just keep living them day-after-day, EVEN if they are unsatisfying or unfulfilling.  That it’s e.a.s.i.e.r. to stay where we are, unhappy, than to be b.r.a.v.e. and change your life.”


BULLS-EYE, right?

I think 2016 might be the year where I figure out Where I Belong….now.  in the present.  today.   I think I was living where I used to belong, and that rug being pulled out from under me a month ago — created the bravery I needed to make myself change.  Where am I going?  I don’t just know yet.  But I’m going to be happy there.  That much is certain.  #100happydays (53/100)

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
