No leaf left unturned

For most of us out there, we'll spend a good portion of our lives searching. For love, happiness, the next best thing...

I'm currently undergoing a proactive search for not only true happiness, but contentment. Peace. Perhaps a hint of a spark of joy, or two, or three...

My intention for this post, and others in the future, is not to dwell on my current melancholy state that I can't quite shake, or to blab on about a vague "search" without venturing on to a justified explanation.

But I am, certainly, trying to post more often, no matter how unmotivated or sad I may be at the time, and no matter how much I really just don't want to delve too far into details.

So here I am, skimming the surface but reaching out, nonetheless. Admitting that lately, for me, the colors just seem far less bright than they truly ought to be.

I always find, that in times like that, you have to return to the basics. The simple things. The way coffee smells in the morning. Or how good it feels to get into bed. Or the way a leaf floats to the ground. Or the way the sun will streak the sky with invisible rays and just light the tips of the clouds. The way your boyfriend touches your hand when he walks by. The little kid that gives you the biggest grin because all you did was help him with something small. Find peace in those moments....they are all around if you look for them.
My thoughts are with you!

I think we all go through times where the world seems little dull, and the spark seems to have gone out of things. I don't know what the solution is, but I think writing about how you're feeling is definitely a step in the right direction. Good luck in your search.

(And thanks for your post on my blog. I'm glad to know I'm not the only who gets stressed out about planning!)
