As you get older you find out that true happiness is not in how much you make or how many degrees you have or how big your house is or how fancy your car is. It’s finding peace and joy and a calmness in your life that will soon become the most important thing to you. Your family are what matters to you. Things that are of quality not of quantity. ~Unknown
Today I want you to ask yourself a question. “What am I waiting for to be happy? Is your happiness tagged to a condition? Are you waiting to be thin, be in a relationship, have a dream job or the acceptance of others in order to achieve happiness?
I have learned that looking to the external world to remedy an internal problem doesn’t work. These things may bring us happiness, but it’s a happiness that is short-lived and temporary.
The reality is that happiness has no conditions. It isn’t a destination or a person or something you can buy. Happiness is something you create. It’s an outlook and it’s a choice.
You find happiness when you stop fixating on everything going wrong in your life, and start focusing on all the things going right . You find it when you stop comparing yourself to others, and start embracing who you are with love and acceptance .
You find happiness when you live in the moment when you let go of the hurt from your past and the anxiety of the future; when you allow yourself to enjoy the possibility of
You find it when you stop holding yourself to impossible or unrealistic standards. When you let go of all the judgements and expectations; when you allow yourself to be exactly who you are and feel exactly what you feel.
You find happiness when you let go of the fear of failure; when you give yourself the permission to mess up and be imperfect; when you embrace your flaws; when you recognize that your mistakes don’t make you a failure they make you human, and they help you to learn and grow.
The only thing preventing you from being happy, is you. Decide that you deserve something more. Stop listening to the voice telling you that you aren’t worthy of happiness.
It’s lying. Because happiness isn’t something you earn. It’s your birthright.
Choose to be happy.
