10) Happiness

The world is back in its right place and I am right back where I want to be. I feel good. I feel sexy. I feel whole. LIFE IS GOOD! Dealing with Alopecia Areata wasn’t easy, but I had to realize that pain and suffering are part of the human condition. In time I was able to get back to socializing, going to the gym, dancing, getting outdoors. All the things I did before the hair fell out. All the things that made me happy! Focusing on gratitude helped me clear the path to happiness. I have so much to be grateful for, my inner strength, personal connections, and good health. The reality is that I lost my hair. It was a challenge for me, an adjustment. It made me sad, but in the end it is just hair. Meanwhile, there’s a wonderful world out there to be enjoyed!
