Why Bright Spots?In writing this book, my purpose is to identify the presence of light within those who have given thought to giving up. There have been many who have given up when faced with hardships. There are many who, as of this moment, are having thoughts of giving up. This book may inspire you (and them) to consider a different perspective and make a decision to live.There are moments in our lives when we experience situations that leave us feeling downhearted and dejected – a loved one’s betrayal, loss of a job, a secret unexpectedly revealed, an unsuccessful relationship, or simply being broke and broken.
Whatever it is that troubles you, it’s time to search for the light and walk out of the darkness.It is easier said than done, but, it must be done. As I have discovered through my own personal experiences and those of countless confidants, much of what we need is a listening ear and still lips. I have been fortunate enough to have great friends and supportive family in this regard. Although they might not all be considered biological family, they are people with whom I share a special bond. We can discover our bright spots in our interaction with persons or our time spent at places. I’ve discovered many of my personal bright spots without regard to the length of our association or depth of connection.
But everything is the totality of variables, created by your environment, and filtered through your perception. Your happiness is based on what you consider happiness is. Never allow someone else to redefine your idea of happiness.
Happiness mean a state of being happy─ feeling or showing pleasure or contentment.
Based on the definition, I can’t determine your level of happiness by my perception. Only “you” can decide what you perceive happiness is. In the area of relationships, the epitome of that union rest in finding a significant other to enjoy life with. Sometimes people settle for “superficial happiness” and forget their standards because of loneliness. When you give into the emotions of loneliness, it will make you search out for fabricated love in all the wrong places. It’s only fabricated because you make yourself feel a certain way when the evidence screams in your face─SHE IS NOT THE ONE! HE IS NOT THE ONE! RUNAWAY! GOD HAS SOMETHING BETTER FOR YOU!
How do you know when that special person is the “one” for you? Have you ever been with someone and couldn’t figure out why you’re with that person?
