In a world of excess and wanting more. Of longer hours and having what we want when we want it, it is no wonder we can burn the candle at both ends sooner rather than later. We have all that we can ever want yet a lot of us are still yearning for happiness. Sometimes it can take a real wake up call to understand that it isn’t the ‘things’ that make us happy but it is all within ourselves and in our own being that we find the truest form of happiness. Many are chasing that ‘thing’. That bigger car, that better television, that bigger house, that It bag. “Ill be happy when…” mentality. When we get it then suddenly its not enough and we chase the next thing then the next.
Happiness is an inside job. It is not by what we have. It is not our possessions and how many people like you or by your level of career success. Would you still be happy if your possession where gone? When your happiness resides in you then what happens in the outside circumstances of life wouldn’t effect you near as much as if you measured your happiness by those external things. Work toward being your own happiness. Find it within you. Not by having the perfect house, the perfect boyfriend/husband/partner, the perfect job or perfect body and so on. You don’t have to chase happiness. It comes within you if you just stop and tap into your own self. It comes to you. Find your bliss. You don’t have to look far. Just look to you.
