365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 145: Struggling To Be Happy?


Now that you know what are some of the things that can stand in the way of creating the life you desire, I have a few questions for you:

What is happiness for you? Do you know what makes you happy? How do you define your place of happiness?

For the last 8 days I wrote about things that hinder your efforts to achieve your dream life. And now I ask you:

How does your dream life look? Can you describe it? What will make you happy?

Think about it and see what the answers are. These questions are important. Are you happy now? Or will you be happy once you find the right person? Will you be happy once you have a new job, a new house, a new spouse, a new child, more money or more free time? Will you be happy once you shed a few pounds or get back into the gym? Will you be happy once someone in your life changes their behavior?

You see, none of these things above will make you happy. In fact, they will make you more miserable, because once you get them, you will realize that you are still not happy. Why? Because your happiness does not reside outside you and it does not depend on external events and other people.

You will experience happiness when you live your life with authenticity and integrity. When what you say and do every day resonate and are in alignment with what  you feel and think, that is when you will feel in balance and harmony with yourself.

So from this different perspective – integrity and authenticity – ask yourself:

“What do I need to shift inside myself and in my life so that I can experience happiness? What will create a more authentic life for me?”

I want you to be happy, truly happy!
