Belinda Carlisle almost had me fooled. I nearly believed her when she said that “heaven is a place on earth”. If that’s so, then why haven’t I found it? I’ve searched high and low for it, but my efforts all these years have all been futile. I feel like I’ve been chasing happiness like a cat does a mouse.
I know it’s impossible to have a problem-free life, but that’s not what heaven is to me. My idea of heaven is when I know that I’m really happy, despite life’s hardships and challenges. Happiness is something that rebuilds you after you’ve been broken. That’s what I want.
Heaven for me is also about loving and being loved. If you look at the string of failed relationships behind me, you’d say that true love is something that has eluded me for so long.
If I can’t find heaven here on earth, can I at least just create it? But how exactly do I do that? We each have our own formula for happiness, and what may have worked for you may not necessarily work its magic on me.
I know what I want from this life. It’s just so hard to get it. Perhaps if I Click Here, I’ll finally find what I’ve been looking for…
