Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy. No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy. Your happiness will not come to you. It can only come from you.
Are you happy? Knowing the answer to this question is important. Living every day in such a manner that makes happiness possible is life changing.
Integrity is the foundation of a happy, meaningful life. A lot of the everyday conflict that arises in our lives exists simply because we’re not living in sincere alignment with our core values and beliefs, we’re not being true to ourselves. Wherever your heart is, wherever your truth is, that’s where you will find your reason to smile.
Happiness depends on being free, and freedom depends on being brave. You have to be willing to take a chance on what makes you happy. The only way to find true happiness is to be vulnerable sometimes and risk the possibility of being completely cut open.
Happiness is wholeness, and every step and experience is what makes you whole. Without each life experience, you are a blank page, an empty journal, an unsung lyric. What makes you ALIVE is your will to live through today’s challenges and then hold your head up high tomorrow with hope and determination.
A happy life story does not mean an easy life story. The best thing that you can do is to follow your heart. Take risks. Don’t just make the safe and easy choices because you’re afraid of what might happen if you do, nothing will ever happen.
