Be Happy Now!

A good day to you all. I want to allow you to all come to understand the power you have within yourselves to be happy now. This present moment is what really matters..

A Happy Thought

Happiness is such a widely discussed topic, especially on social media such as Instagram. In my opinion, it is great that we are becoming more aware of why we should feel happiness. There has also been a lot of information revealing the benefits in which being content has on your body.

However, I think a lot of these articles and posts are missing something really important. And I believe this is the reason why so many of us are not understanding why we do not feel happy.

We can’t seek happiness.¬†Happiness is not something you just find. It is an emotion, a mood. We hear and a read a lot of “find your happiness now” and so forth. Whereas, in reality you won’t.

What is Happiness?

Happiness is an intense and wonderful feeling of sheer joy and bliss. It is an energy which we ourselves create. Of course, we will not feel happy one hundred percent of the time. That does not mean that we are not happy. Personally, I believe happiness is about the way we look at life, the way we handle difficult situations and the way we approach every day. Yes, there will be things in life which appear to make you more happy than others. But the real state of happiness comes from within. Happiness is felt. Happiness just is.

A quote which I have seen shared quite often really does portray the message well. If you take a moment to really think about the meaning behind the words, my message may become more clear.

“Happiness is not a destination. It is a way of life.”

“Happiness is a journey, not a destination.”

These are two variations of words with the same underlying meaning. Life is a journey and being happy is something we chose to feel along the way.

The Present is What Matters

Therefore, be happy now! So many of us have the mind set of only being content with things which are due to happen. For instance “I will be happy when.. I am on holiday.” Or, “I will be happy when.. I have lost weight.” No! Be happy with who you are right now! That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t improve yourself, of course you can. It just means that while you are working out more and getting a more toned physique, you continue to love yourself the you you are. It is all connected, if we feel happiness and love, we really will feel more positive about whatever life throws at us. Life is the most wonderful blessing, it just takes some of us a little more time to realise it.

I hope you are able to take something valuable from this.

Love.

Living Without Passing Judgement

Hello all. In a society where everyone seems to judge what those around them are doing; I want to share why I think we need to put a stop to this. Passing judgement on strangers or friends, whoever it is, it is basically not what we should be doing.

What I Mean By Passing Judgement

So, here is an example. Say you walk past someone on the street and think “Oh I really don’t like her hair, what an awful colour.” That right there is judging. You know absolutely nothing about this person. We all express ourselves in different ways, and that should be accepted without question. As soon as you decide you don’t like that lady’s hair, you are likely to then look for other negatives based on her appearance that you also do not like. Let me ask you this: does her hair colour have any impact on your life or mood? No. Therefore, it really is none of your business. Let the lady have her hair how she wants it. Yes – you may not want this hair colour on yourself, but nothing should stop her.

When we are passing judgement, we are producing negative thoughts. You probably don’t even realise you are doing it. Once you bring it into your consciousness by being present, you can alter the way you think. This will make you stop and think twice before you judge a stranger.

Love Every Aspect Of Yourself

I have discussed the importance of self love before. But I am going to shine a light on it again, as I really believe it helps us be who we truly are. Inside you, you have a beautiful kindness, so caress it and use it. Try to start doing at least one thing everyday that puts this beautiful light to good use.

“If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” – Roald Dahl

Top Tips

Embrace who you are – be true to yourself. Perhaps you are the person who wants to dye your hair a bold colour. Do it. Don’t let anyone stop you. You cannot please everyone, but, the truth is, you don’t need to. If you live a life trying to please everyone you will drive yourself mad. Some people just will not like you, so accept it and spend more time with the people who do.

Notice the way you think about others – bring it into your consciousness. This will enhance the beautiful thoughts you have. Giving compliments is a great way of expressing them. Stop passing judgement, no matter who it is, it doesn’t affect you.

Love yourself – in the non egotistical way. It may take you a while to find the right balance, but, like all things, with practise, you will learn. Then, you can use this same source of energy to love others. Think loving thoughts before judgemental ones. This will really help your mindset become a more positive one.

Thank you so much for reading. Feel free to share your thoughts.

Standing Out From The Crowd

Hello all. In today’s post I would like to discuss what standing out from the crowd means for me. I will share why I think it is okay to be different.

Standing Out

By standing out, I don’t necessarily mean going out of your way to take extreme actions and getting yourself noticed. In my eyes, it means embracing who you truly are, your true self. None of us are the same, we all have our own opinions, looks, personalities and own takes on life and the way of the world. In previous posts I have discussed how unique and different we all are. I want to highlight how we should accept these differences and special qualities.

Each day, we come across people who are all very  individual. Some may have a loud and boisterous personality, whereas others may be more reserved and calm. I believe that the best friendships blossom when two people have different personalities, but share some similarities as well, creating that balance. This allows you both to learn from one another.

It Is Okay To Be Different

When we go about our everyday lives, many of us feel certain pressures from societal norms. The message I wish to get across to you is: life has no limits. Don’t do something to try and fit in, true friends should accept you for who you are. Your approaches to how you do things are great, they work for you.

Remember that for each and every one of us, “the crowd” will be different. Believe in yourself and all you are able to do without wanting to seek change to fit into a certain group.

Connect With Yourself

As I have found, there are some things you can do to really connect with your being. Again, these will be different for everybody. Personally, it is one of the reasons I love yoga, because I am able to offer no judgements to myself and just be who I truly am. This is what standing out is. For you, you may find this feeling through meditation, going to the gym or even going for a walk. This is why spending some time alone is so important. It allows us to spiritually grow and then – radiate love.
