Pure Bliss

“If I could drop dead right now, I’d be the happiest man alive.”

Surely you know the feeling. It’s like that “I’m on top of the world-don’t wake me up if I am dreaming-my heart is smiling” type. You wonder if life can get any better than it is at that moment. And then it does. Aren’t those days/weeks/split-seconds the greatest, most beautiful, magical thing in the world?! In that very moment, you know. You just know that life should be feel like this all of the time. You promise to yourself you will never complain about a thing again and wish this moment would last forever. As you soak up the greatest feeling in the world, you realize something: you’re smiling and everyone around you is staring. Don’t worry; it’s only because they’re jealous!

Sometimes, this feeling can be a really scary thing. What if the person/place/thing that put that ridiculous grin on your face doesn’t last? The last person to make you feel so special quickly made you feel worthless. It can be a hard thing to let go of that and allow their memory to leave footprints on your heart instead of a scar. It may be difficult to imagine leaving them in the past and allowing yourself to open your heart to someone else. But life is never easy; we all have our challenges and differences that have formed us into who we are. Completely letting go of that one person will allow you to open your heart, mind, and soul to someone who deserves to be there. Sure, it’s going to take some time before you’re fully restored and during that time, look around you. It’s those people that will hold your hand and be there for you.

Right now, enjoy it! Live in the moment and soak up everything it has to offer. Smile until your cheeks start to hurt and then keep smiling because you realized how long you’ve been smiling! There’s nothing like that on top of the world-loving every minute of it-don’t want this to end feeling and in that moment, you’ll truly be alive.
