Spotlight on Wendy Wilson!

Meet today's guest blogger--Wendy Wilson! She is the CEO & Founder of W2 Communications--an agency offering public relations support, as well as professional development and training services. However, when I asked Wendy what she wanted me to share about her, she said she's a mother of two, an avid reader, and a book collector. Plus, ladies, her other hobby is collecting and wearing fabulous shoes!! She's speaking our language right? :-) Now on to her post...

Life is full of lessons! With each day that passes I grow thankful for what I do know, while simultaneously considering just how much I have to learn!  One of the things that I can definitely say that I’ve learned is that Happiness is not a destination…it’s a journey.

Over my 46 years I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve heard someone say, “I’ll be happy when I (retire, see my kids off to college, buy my dream house or find the perfect job)  ____________! But as we plan our happiness and define how it should be packaged we forgo or overlook the happiness that surfaces out of nowhere as we journey through our daily walk.

We do ourselves a disservice when we limit our perspective as to what happiness is.  It’s more than landing the perfect job or buying our first home. It’s greater than seeing our children walk across the stage to receive their college degree.  How much greater do you ask? It’s as great as having your child say “I love you” and wanting nothing more but an “I love you too” in return.

It’s as great as attending your church, mosque or synagogue and feeling as if the message was meant for only you.   It’s as great as reading a passage from a book and feeling as if your world has been changed for the better. It’s pulling into your driveway after a long day and knowing that you’re moments away from entering your own personal sanctuary.  It’s the scent of a freshly bathed newborn. It’s the phone call from a dear friend that wants nothing more than to hear your voice.  These snippets of happiness occur far more frequently than our dream vacation or the retirement that is yet another 10 years away.

While we wait for happiness that we’ve defined we deny the happiness that manifests in our lives unexpectedly and without planning. So here is my unsolicited advice to all that are determined to one day find true happiness. Eagerly anticipate your next moment in life and wait for the happiness of hearing a child laugh or smile. Wait for the embrace that you’ll receive during your next visit with your grandmother. Better yet, surprise your dearest friend with a phone call.  Let’s stop waiting for happiness to happen and decide today to embrace the happiness that is within our very reach. And remember to forgo the destination; you’ll enjoy the journey of happiness far more!
