The Irony Of It All.

If you are happy, what would encourage you to go forward? To try harder? Happiness is counterproductive. I no longer have it to strive for, only to cling to, in fear of losing it. Years have passed, tears have flowed, and I am finally where I am now. On top of the world. And now, I am finding myself making excuses, shrinking back. Almost afraid to take those steps. That question, the ‘what do you have to lose?’ it doesn’t apply anymore. I have a lot to lose – all that I’ve been striving up until now, to gain.


  1. then what do us sad people have to strive for if we know that when we're happy we have nothing to look forward to?
    oh jeez.

  2. this is honestly, so perfect.
    as always, you are so very right.

  3. As per Kris Kristofferson: "Freedom's just another word for nothing else to lose." Good stuff, along with your blog.
    Thank you for the visit and comment! I'm about to become your newest follower.

  4. Such is life! It's always more about the pursuit of happiness than the attainment of it.. ah, lovely photo anyway - happiness in the palm of your hands! X
