I am feeling more settled in my new job. I completed a large project last week and was so excited to see it come to fruition. To see a printed version of something I design is very satisfying. I am happy in the direction that my life is headed in terms of career. I finally feel like I am in control of my own happiness at work. My days are filled with creative thoughts and I am surrounded by positive people that laugh and talk.
The last few months I have seen people in my life that I love struggle with finding their own happiness. I keep trying to do things to help. Sometimes it seems that I can help in some small way. Mostly it backfires into more unhappiness. I guess you can help or try to help too much. When the other person perceives it as control, you are clearly not helping them. It is hard to step back and watch people you love suffer. It is hard to hear that your actions, although they come from a good place, are not wanted. So, I have to just step back. Work on my own life and simply hope that others will do the same.
I will be focusing on my own life from now on. I cannot let negativity in. Once it is in, it is hard to get it out. I will keep working hard for my dreams. I will keep believing and knowing that I am on the right path. I will keep sending good Karma to all and hoping the best for those I love and value.
But most of all, I will accept that I cannot change things for others.
