I have been on a year and half long journey since I started Passports & Prada, to seek happiness in the little things in life, to find true peace, joy, and love for life again. The problem is that I pursued it in all the wrong places. I was looking at: what should I look like, where should I live, what should I listen to, wear, say, eat & drink? You see, there’s nothing wrong with seeking those things, but I found that the happiness I received was temporary. In one way or another, you live your life based on what you think will make you happy. You seek happiness in: marriage, health and fitness, “the little things in life,” fashion, guys, friends, tv-shows, partying, career, travel, etc... I hate to be the one to break it to you, but it will eventually all come crashing down. This is because you are only being held up by droplets that are small and light at first, but what goes up must come down. The heavy cloud full of tiny little droplets has reached its limit and it’ll start to pour. I'm not saying at all that these things are wrong, but they don’t create forever-fulfilling peace and happiness... and love so deep within you that it emanates from the way you live your life. That’s the kind of joy I’m seeking, not the temporary pleasures that lead to a short high and then another devastating low.
I want lasting. I want fulfilling. I want eternal.The best part is that when you do find this kind of joy, it will lift you up and bring all those things you were seeking happiness in to be lifted up with you, and they will stay up… forever! Problem solved.
