“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
I first visited my friend Charlie two years ago. I was amazed at the love his daughter Christine had for their dog, Sunny. One night as we were getting ready to turn in, Chris looked at Sunny and asked “are you happy?” When was the last time you asked someone “are you happy?” We are so focused on ourselves at times and forget that others in our lives may be going through something that we know nothing about. Emotional pain is not something you cover with a Band-Aid so that others know that there is an owie there. Many times people are oblivious to the hurt and sadness living below the surface because we get really good at masking it.
Dear Angels, when we are in pain we sometimes retreat to lick our wounds or even find a corner to hide in as our wonderful cats do when they believe they are dying. We even push people close to us away as we seclude ourselves. We think others cannot understand what we are feeling so we make ourselves even smaller so as not to draw attention.
Dear Ones, love is the key that unlocks the door, especially when you are trying to hide away to suffer in silence. You are here to support and love each other through your current life experiences. When you hide you are taking away the opportunity for your loved ones to share their light with you. You don’t know what miracles might be waiting for you beyond that corner that you are cowering in. Your gift to your loved ones is to open up to their love and accepting that gift with gratitude. Many who will not open to the love live a miserable life and never find true happiness. Your happiness doesn’t happen because of anything on the outside of you but rather comes from your ability to feel your worthiness to be loved. We encourage you to find that place inside of you where you can connect with your higher self to open to love. Listen as we ask you that important question, “are you happy?”
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to not bury my feelings and to always be open to love.
