This is beautiful. I stopped looking for happiness long ago. You can’t really define happiness and because it’s indescribable I felt like I was chasing something in your words that’s fleeting, temporary, even worldly. I strive now for peace. Less stuff is peace to me. Simple living is peaceful living. Fewer people with fewer problems is peace. You found peace it sounds like my friend. Nothing like that grown Black woman wisdom! We creatives are alike and it sadly takes the world tearing us down to get it.
Peace is a wonderful thing. Being in tune with oneself and knowing when enough is enough some people never get. Keep your peace sis! This was so refreshing. The shit that matters to real people!!!!
