Many times we keep chasing happiness and it seems to be always one step ahead. We might keep saying that if I have this or that, if I get where I want to be in life, then I’ll be happy… But how do you think that having a material thing or gaining success will make you truly happy? You might get a moment of thrill when you finally get what you want, but unfortunately that thrill vanishes away quickly…As next moment you see something else you need to have and the thing you just got is not good enough anymore. Maybe you have experienced this already?
Sometimes we might expect that another person can make us happy. If I just would have the perfect partner, then I’d be happy… If my partner/my friend/my boss would do this or that, then I’d be happy… We might expect that other person could finally make us happy, but we need to take the responsibility of our happiness. The truth is that you are the only person who can make you happy.
Now it’s time to go through your list again, do you really think that the things on your list have the power to make you feel happy or unhappy? Check also if you are bringing clouds over your happiness from the past or maybe you are worrying about the future? Remember that we are focusing on the present moment, not the past nor the future, but right now! What is stopping you to be happy right now?
“If you want to be happy…be” ~ Leo Tolstoy
Happiness is a state of mind. The real happiness does not come from outside. Sure, it’s lovely to have beautiful things, amazing people and success in life, but they do not guarantee happiness. The moment when you realize that happiness comes from inside will make a huge difference in your life.
You deserve to be happy, my dear friend! Enjoy the journey of life and start making the best of every day. If you would like support on your pursuit of happiness, I’d love to be your personal coach.
With love & light,
