Happiness is so very subjective. In this world, there are so many people who want to be happy. It’s easy to pretend you are happy when you’re not. I mean, I can convince myself of anything and I did for a very long time. But it actually took recognition and awareness of myself to realize I was not happy. Then I realized happiness is what we make of it.
So what did I do about it?
I started doing things that make me happy. Positive action was vital to my happiness and it primed my mind and spirit for happiness. For me, there was a big, beautiful goal in my mind. That goal is to live a good, beautiful, fulfilling, and challenging life. I had to learn to be accepting and happy with my present self because this self will never exist again after this moment.
We die every second. We can either mourn what is gone or fret about what is to come. The alternative to both these things is to live in the moment and enjoy this journey.
A good life is not one in which you sit around, do nothing, expect everything, and seek nothing.
A good life is one in which you don’t fret about your shortcomings but work for personal betterment and fullfillment.
Stop worrying about what is wrong and appreciate that there is anything that could be wrong…or right…or needing of improvement..or…etc. When you spend your time worrying about what is wrong, you launch youself into a cycle of negativity.
Instead, take action, be positive, and stop that cycle.
The universe will take care of the rest.
