Happiness Formula

 

Oooohhh…I’m getting chills thinking about

This month because I have never had

It go down (or up) like this

This month isn’t even half way over and it’s

Already been filled with quite a few life changing

Events for more than a few people

(Rip Charlie Murphy…)

 

The first day of April I was in a

Georgia hospital waiting as granny bear 

Struggled to get back what little 

Strength she had before suffering her 

Second stroke in as many weeks.

 

It was tough to see that, I admit, but 

I felt so much love in the room as

I held her hand and then proceeded to…

 

Arm wrestler her good arm*

 

Anyway, fast forward a few weeks

I have a client that invites me over

To my first Seder in almost a decade

The food, was delicious and it was good

To spend some time with loving people

Today was the icing on the cake however.

 

After talking about how much of a good time

I had at the Seder, another client offered

To have me join them on a vacation trip.

(Of course I’m going!)

 

It all seems so real like it’s everyday life

But I can’t really say this generosity is

Something that I experience everyday.

You know, there’s is definitely something

That we can take from this and it’s probably

Not what you think…

 

Yeah, Imma keep going for a sec so stay with me

 

You see, nothing in life is free. Nothing!

Whenever you spend resources, be they money

Or time, or something of similar value

 

You end up either investing in yourself or

Investing in something or someone else.

 

Nothing in this world is ever wasted.

Simply repurposed.

Now, I’m not gonna say the following can

Be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt

But I want you to honestly think about it

For yourself before you answer.

 

Could it be that the good you do in the world

Comes back with the intention that you put into it?

 

What am I saying? Well let’s break it down…

 

I was just talking about how nothing is free and

How it is important to understand the value you

Put into your own time and energy spent.

 

In the beginning of this month, I dropped everything

And drove down to see my grandmother (granny bear)

To see if there was anything I could do.

I don’t want it to sound like I’m bragging, because

That’s is the furthest thing from my mind.

I’m just trying to make the point that out of love

I made a sacrifice of time and money.

 

Some people say they sacrifice this and that but

Never see any real returns on their investment

But I’m beginning to realize as this is occurring more

And more frequently in my own life that

 

It’s not a matter of how much you do

It’s a matter of how much you love

 

^^^^^ Read that again broham

 

I’d have you consider that love is a resource

And just like any other resource, there are

Ways to detect counterfeits.

 

If the love you are putting into something

Isn’t real, you aren’t going to get the full

Benefits you deserve from your life.

 

I know it’s hard bro.

It’s so so so hard to get this.

It took me years and yet I still wonder

Sometimes if it’s something else, but time

After time it’s proven to be the real deal. 

 

And here’s the formula:

 

Love + y = Happiness

Find “Y” and solve for happiness.

 

*Note: granny bear is now sitting up

And is moving both sides of her body

Thank you for all your love, support, and prayers!

P.S. Pretty nifty right? I think that in the future we

Might actually find that a similar equation actually

Exists and we control more about our world that

We currently realize.

 

We used to think the world was flat, wars were

Started by Gods, and that we could cure diseases

With leeches. What will be saying about our

Current way of thinking in 100 years? In my

Private Facebook group Project SELFFY we

Talk about this type of thinking and where

We might be going next. If you would like to
