“Stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive.” – Hāfez (Poet)
I truly love this quote by Hāfez for it’s simple truth.
It takes all complexity out of living ‘the good life’ coupled with putting the power of feeling alive (feeling happy, joyous, passionate bliss or exhilaration) back on each individual.
Most of us can agree that happiness comes from within and in order to feed this feeling, we must surround ourselves with people, places and things (ANYTHING, according to Hāfez ) that makes us continue to feel this way to awake our aliveness on a habitual level.
Personally, this quote speaks to me that my happiness is MY responsibility, MY right, and, most importantly, within MY control and reach.
Today, I chose to live life simply and ALIVE.
Today, how did you awake the feeling of ALIVENESS within and how do you keep it ALIVE on a daily basis?
