I believe that the ultimate gift in life is to be happy. Figuring out how to have inner peace and happiness in your life is better than any material object that you could ever dream of having. You could live in a beautiful mansion and have all money that you could ever imagine, but without happiness what is it all for? No one can be responsible for your happiness! Your own true happiness must come from within.
As a child have you ever asked for something from your parents and after receiving it you wanted something bigger and better? You then you ask for something else and once you were finally told “NO” and it caused you to become upset. Have you ever felt like you have given your own children everything that he or she wanted only for them to want more and more until you finally tell them NO, and they then end up telling you that you never give them anything that they want?
Have you ever felt like you’ve done everything that you possible could for your significant other and when you finally decided to say NO, they aren’t very pleased with you?
You get point!
You are the only person that can make YOU happy. Your spouse cannot make you happy. Your parent’s or your friends cannot make you happy. You can try as hard as you want and give until you can’t give anymore, but if a person cannot figure out how to make themselves truly happy no one else can because happiness starts from within. Sure we enjoy being with the people that we love. But once they do or say something that we feel isn’t very loving we are left feeling upset or angry. That’s why we all must do what we can to maintain our own happiness so no matter the situation no one could ever steal our joy!
Therefore on a daily basis you must do what you can to make your life more enjoyable. Try your best to do the things that you love to do. If you love movies, find a good movie on TV or invite some good friends out for a movie night. Be creative. Go zip lining, go to an amusement park. If you love to cook, find a new cook book or take a cooking class. If you love to dance, enroll in a dance class or go out dancing.
Make a list of all of the things that you love to do or would love to try and make a point to do them at least 2 or 3 times a week. Do your best to make your life more fun and interesting.
After all that’s what we are here for. Life is supposed to be fun. We are supposed to enjoy life. Not work until we drop or continuously focus on our so called problems. Everything that you attract in your life is based on what you think about and what you focus your attention too. So you might as well pay more attention to the way you feel and create good things. The better you feel, the better things you will attract into your life experience.
Do the things you loved to do as a kid. When I was a kid, I loved to roller-skate, so I decided to buy myself new skates and now skating has become one of my new hobbies. When I skate, I am in a happy place and nothing in the world bothers me. You are never too old to have fun. Life is what you make it. Do the things you love to do. Don’t worry about what others are doing or saying it has nothing to do with you. You are the creator of your own life experiences.
Depend on yourself to become a happier person and your life will improve tremendously. When you wake up in the morning say to yourself, “Today I choose happiness, success and peace.” Give thanks for your blessings several times a day. If you have consistent negative thoughts of fear, anger or worry; you will become unhappy and depressed because you get what you consistently think about. You must desire to be happy. Imagine fulfilling your dreams and your dreams will come into reality. When you ask or pray for happiness it will come to pass.
Sending Love and Happiness,
