The pictures in your cubical prove that happiness isn’t a Pay Cheque, a Christmas party, or a dress down Friday.
Happiness is the grass your family lays on, the yoga lessons you rush to after work and the pizza tradition you cling to, every Friday Night. It’s the journal entries you keep at 3 a.m., the guitar lessons you apologize for ahead of time and the Netflix shows you love to watch, on a rainy Sunday morning.
The pictures in your cubical cover lifeless walls, witnessing days of frustrating routine and silenced voices. The pictures in your cubical prove that although your heart may speak the loudest, your head still plays the safest.
You’ll analyze every word they say and the speed in which they text. You’ll stay up late wondering where they are and you’ll go to sleep crying, the nights they’re not by your side. You’ll let your stomach knot, when you feel them drift away and you’ll let your idea of love, stand in your way of loving.
For the definition of love has mislead us to think, if it’s not dancing in the rain, it’s not love at all. So we wait for the letters and the Cinderella proposals. We wait, and we wait, and we wait.
So, don’t fall in love with the wrong person, for the right one will never make you wait. Never make you wonder. Life isn’t about someone, it’s about the right one. It’s about silence that feels right and love that feels easy. It’s about nights alone, knowing they’ll be back and once they’re back, it’s knowing they’ll stay.

It’s never the call you were expecting. The text you wanted. The job you would rather. The meal you’d prefer. The compliment you hoped for. The reaction you prepared for. The love you believed was real, or the life you imagined living. Life never gives us what we’re expecting but still, we live with the confidence that we write our own story. We don’t. We don’t know what’s ahead. We don’t have full control. For all we can do in this crazy, maddening world, is the best we can do.
