017: Searching Somewhere for Happiness

After arriving in Las Palmas, Spain, I realized that I fell into the same trap that I always do. I assumed that if I change my outside world, then my inside world would follow, but that is not the case. In this episode, I try to understand my version of happiness, not only what it looks like but also what it feels like. I have always blamed the outside world for my unhappiness which is why I am constantly trying to change my surroundings. I’ve begun to realize that I focus too much on what I think is making me unhappy rather than what happiness actually feels like. As I begin to understand what happiness is, only then can I start moving towards it. The shift from blame to responsibility has begun and so too has my understanding of where I am and where I want to be.
