You may have heard the saying “happiness is not a destination, it’s a journey”, and as corny as this may sound, it is definitely true.
Stop Waiting for Happiness
If you spend your life thinking “I will be happy when…” then trust me, you will never be happy. Happiness comes from within, therefore, your mindset will have a major impact on the way you feel.
In a time where we live our lives online, many of us may find ourselves comparing our looks and lives to others. Remember that Instagram shows the fun parts, the things people want you to see. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, if you know me, you will know I love sharing photos.
However, if we keep this attitude of comparisons, we will also struggle to feel happy. It is actually detrimental to our mental health.
The Best Time is NOW
If you really start embracing the present moment, you will be really living! Now is the time you can start something new, break an old habit and really make a change.
Yes, you may plan ahead and be organised, however, arranging to do something ‘tomorrow’ will be actually done in the present moment.
A saying my Grandad ingrained into me, which at a young age, I struggled to understand;
“Today is tomorrow, yesterday.”
If you think about it, then there is nothing untrue about that quote. It goes to show how time passes.
Be Happy and Be You
Feel your happiness. Find your happiness. The way you think impacts the way you feel.
Of course, there are things and people that can make you happy. But, happiness is a feeling and it is sourced from your own head. Keep on doing the things which add to your happiness. Spending time with positive people will also remind you to think happy thoughts.
