Can happiness really be yours?
The state of happiness is simply a decision usually achieved by those who got sick and tired of being robbed of living by unhappiness (a broken heart).
Our life is impressed mostly by things we don’t see or understand. That is why happiness seems so elusive.
The first thing we associate with happiness are outwardly things like fame and fortune.
Happiness cannot be bought.
Money has zero impact on whether you are truly a happy person.
There are miserable rich folks who live pathetic, unhappy lives who do the darndest things (waste) with their money.
On the other hand, there are the poorest of the poor souls around the world lifting up hands with joy and thankfulness, happy for the gift of another day.
The truth is, there are either things that are more important to you than happiness, or you’ve just simply lost your way (mind).
Happiness thrives in recognizing and being thankful for the simple things in life.
Most folks do everything they can to complicate their life by seeking to indulge pleasures they believe will bring them happiness.
Big problems get created right about here for many!
Drugs, alcohol, sex, big houses, fast cars – nothing can fill the void within you except happiness itself.
Happiness thrives in quiet time within so you can understand who you really are.
There are some folks who are just lost in the woods; they don’t have a clue as to who they are or where they’re going.
There’s nothing more unsettling or confusing than not knowing who you really are.
This usually stems from living a life that others think is right for you, or going out of your way to please others with no regard for your own happiness.
Happy people have embraced the fullness of who they are and as a result of being that “complete” person, their happiness over-flows to others.
Happiness thrives in the moment.
It’s easy to lose your moments of happiness in the busyness of life.
The mind runs a million miles a minute about the past, the future, your problems, needs, goals, and the pressures of life, which pretty much doesn’t leave much time for your moments of happiness any day.
They are moments you will never get back. Gone forever.
Have you heard the saying, “Stop and smell the roses?” There is a reason it’s such a well known phrase…
Happiness requires that you shut off your mind and open your eyes and embrace the happiness that’s right in front of you.
This is where happiness exists.
NOW is the only place you’ll ever experience it and be it.
So, why not choose to be happy today? You deserve it!
