Make Your Happiness A Priority
I hope all is well! I had a 3 day weekend and I honestly forgot about writing this letter. I have been so busy that I used my Monday to be in quietness and read a book. I'm an introvert (most of the time), and I need alone time to recharge. I hope you plan time to be alone. It really helps me prepare for the next day/week.
So, this week I want to talk about being happy. Are you happy? Does your happiness depend on other people? You are responsible for your own happiness. If you expect others to make you happy, you'll always be disappointed. A lot of people wait on things or people to make them happy. If we do that, we'll be waiting forever. I believe happy people are thankful for what and who they have in their lives. They could complain, but choose to be thankful for what they have and work toward what they want. They know someone somewhere would be more than thankful for their bad days.
I can talk about this subject because I remember when I wasn't happy. I was a very unhappy and miserable person. I let life steal my happiness . I would look at the glass half empty instead of half full. I would always complain. I was looking for my happiness in people and things. The biggest lie was the smile I would force on my face in public while I was unhappy on the inside. I was living a whole lie until the day I acknowledged I wasn't happy.
I want you to start your journey to happiness. First, ask yourself if you're happy and list why or why not. For the reasons you are happy, I want you to say you're thankful for it outloud each day. You can even start a gratitude journal and write a list everyday. An attitude of gratitude will change your whole life. If it's only that you can see, you can hear, you can walk, & you're able to speak then that's a lot. Someone would love to have those things we take for granted everyday.
For the reasons you are not happy, I want you to write those down as well. Look at the list and see what you can do to change the reason. Categorize them into things you can change easily right now, in a week, in a month, in 6 months, in a year, or 5 years. Make it a priority to make your happiness a goal. Face whatever it is now so you won't look back in regret. If you want to share, feel free to reply to this email with your list.
I hope this letter helps you jumpstart your journey to happiness or create more happiness for you.
