Certainly, happiness is a goal everyone tries to ultimately achieve.
Everyone wants to be happy, so on a daily basis, they embark in a journey doing things that will ultimately bring them that happiness.
Many times, they forget to live in the present and be happy and grateful for being here, in this world, with what they have today.
You see, happiness, I believe, is as much as being happy and spreading your happiness with others, rather than “seeking” to be happy.
When you first wake up in the morning, your attitude sets the mood for the rest of the day. If you wake up and think about your bills and any crap that’s going on in the world, then more crap will come to you.
When you wake up, smile and think about all the beautiful things that you have in life and that you are in command of how you feel, then you can be happy.
…And being happy constantly brings about happiness.
Seeking happiness outside of your own person is where a lot of people get it wrong. Being happy comes from within. And it all beings with your attitude.
One way to bring about a constant feeling of happiness is to create a dream list and think about your dreams constantly. When you go to bed, think about everything you accomplish that day and then think about your dreams.
When you wake up in the morning, smile and think about your dreams. Whether it’s skydiving, traveling, owning a fast sports car, being in love – whatever it is, think about your dreams constantly.
You don’t have to seek it out, because it comes from within. Imagine riding in a nice luxury vehicle, getting dropped off at the airport and then being flown away to anywhere in the world.
Where would you go? The Bahamas, Europe, Australia?
I mean, just having these thoughts in your mind make you smile. So the key is, to regularly think happy thoughts and being happy in the moment.
Think about what you have today, your family, your loved ones, your contributions, your skills…
There are so many people suffering in this world, that many of us forget the abundance we have.
Even if you don’t have much, there is someone who has far less and has it far worst than you. So you have to get up, smile, and leave the worrying to others.
As the song says – Don’t Worry, Be Happy.
Take every day in stride and be happy and grateful for everything you have. Is that the key to happiness? I certainly believe so.
