Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.
Guillaume Apollinaire

I read this quote this morning on facebook and thought, “What a good reminder”.  Of course, this is just the sort of thing that can send me into an angry little snit if I’m going through a trying time.  But I’m not so this is just the sort of reminder I need.  Pursuing happiness is why we do pretty much all we do, right?  We go to work and make plans and save money and stay healthy and try to stay centered.  All good things that will help us enjoy ourselves in the future.  But we better enjoy doing them, too, or what’s the point?  Live in the moment and all that.

At Living Light, we encourage people to live their passion.  I’m not sure I even know what that means and just hope that happy kids and a heart full of love are passionate enough goals for now.  Our students are definitely following something more concrete in the way of passions.  I hope they’re able to be happy while they’re here and not just live it like a tool to a new future.  Their time here is special.  When we take a dramatic path towards happiness, it’s a beautiful and productive thing.  The real trick is to be content along the way.
