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.
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.
