How To Be Truly Happy With Your Life
You want to be happy. Every person in this world would love to be “truly happy”, but what is this happiness you’re talking about? Is it about having the perfect relationship, husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, or partner? Could it be about being able to travel all over the globe without having issues with money? Can it be through buying expensive things like a designer bags and leather shoes? Can you find true happiness in all that?
Happiness is within you. It’s not just about being in love or being rich. The most important factor about happiness is contentment. If you are contented, you are happy. But, if you can’t find that satisfaction, then, you can have millions in your bank account or be married to the most handsome or most beautiful spouse and yet, you’re still unhappy.
The Essence of Happiness
Live more, worry less and choose to be happy.
When you wake up in the morning, be grateful and say to your loved ones “Good morning. I love you.”. Choose to be happy always and shoo away sadness. Just try until it is natural in you to feel that way. Live your life and worry less because worry brings about anxiety and depression. These two are happiness killers and you don’t want that. The whole point here is to, PICK happiness, SELECT happiness, and CHOOSE happiness, instead of letting the opposite feeling grow within you.
If you want to be happy, you must be grateful every day.
You have so much to be thankful for and so every day, find the time to say it. Thank your spouse or partner for being there for you. Express gratitude to your children, parents and siblings even for the smallest things like – “Hey mom. Thank you so much for getting my dry cleaning. I really appreciate you helping me out. I love you.” These simple words can touch the other person you’re speaking with and it may make them cry, but those are tears of joy. You’ll surely be happy because of that.
Let go of the past, forgive those who have hurt you and move on.
As the song in the cartoon movie “Frozen” brilliantly expressed to its viewers the statement – Let it go; if you want to be happy, follow Elsa and say, “I’m letting it go.” People have hurt you to the point of destroying you in the past, but is it worthy to carry all the excess hate baggage? No. So, let go of the past, forgive those who have hurt you and move on to the bright and happy future. Without grudges and hate in your heart, you will be whole. You are the bigger person and you have your happiness.
Money is not everything – it can’t buy your true happiness.
They say money and buying stuff can fill your heart with happiness. Well, it can be short-lived. Remember that the desires of people are never ending. You will always want something more and that is an issue with contentment. Without contentment, there is no happiness. Happiness is beyond money. Consider that every single time.
Do things with your whole heart to be truly happy.
You need to be driven by passion every day and that is by doing things that you love. If you are in a job that you hate, but still you stay because it pays the house expenses, then, you are terribly unhappy. No one must live like that. It will all go back to money is not everything and you have to do things with your whole heart. Decide and as mentioned already, choose happiness.
There is no secret to being happy or no magic potion for that either. Simple words to make you realize very basic things – happiness is already within you. You just need to ignite it and commit to feeling that way 24/7 and 365 days a year.
