Happiness Knocking

Happiness didn't knock on her door and invite her out to play. She had to build the house, install the door and stand on her porch and holler "Come on in!" - Queenisms™

When we lived in New York City, Queen Cindy had a fantasy that a big Broadway producer would knock on her door and give her a starring role in a Broadway musical. Spoiler alert – that did not happen. For the longest time, she felt like she couldn’t be happy unless her dream of stardom on the stage came true. And so she did lots of temporary jobs to make sure she was free to run off on a national tour at any moment, unencumbered by a real job. Funny thing is that on one of those temp jobs, she found herself digging into the work, really enjoying herself, forgetting what time it was and feeling appreciated and respected in a way that never happened at auditions or even in performances. She nudged open the door to this new life and spent the next 25 years experiencing all the joy and satisfaction she’d hoped would come her way through theater. She never looked back. She’d invited happiness into her life in a surprising way and been rewarded in ways she had not even thought about. This new opportunity happened because she wasn’t sitting in her house waiting. She was out in the world, allowing herself to participate and she had the courage to look through a door she hadn’t noticed before and answer the call of “come on in.” If you are waiting for someone or something to offer you happiness, we urge you to step to the door right now and dare to invite something new into your life. Who’s ready? Happiness doesn’t usually make house calls. Most often we have to go look for it and invite it on in.
