Let things be as they are, without interpretation.
People seek happiness but...

You don't need to be anything extra

The world convinces us that we are not good enough—that the game of life is about someday becoming good enough by learning more, achieving more, having more, looking better, and by being more right about everything.

This is a very silly game. The more we try to add to ourselves, the more ridiculous we look. None of it makes us any more attractive or lovable. In fact, it does just the opposite. By trying to be something extra, we bury what we already are.

Forget that. Let’s be what we are. Let the enjoyable and beautiful external things remain part of your life, but never try to make that your identity. You are already you, and you’ve been you since you were born. That external stuff isn’t all that interesting. Just do your thing, smile your smile, and laugh your laugh. Now you’re looking your best because your truth is shining through.

Think of the people who you are most attracted to. Are these not the people who are most comfortable being who they are? We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
