26 Nov Happiness Is The New Black
For some happiness is measured by their success in business, financial freedom, a loving partner and a great family. How does one measure happiness? Can you even do that? Its great when life is going well we are happy. Things are flowing and there is nothing really to complain about. But it is when things get heavy and life and its problems come knocking, it is then where this measurement gets off base. Is it external factors that throw us off the radar? Most likely. But what if it is up to us and only us to create our own happiness? You can’t possibly control everything in life and life does throw curve balls in our path. They happen for a reason. The thing is we never always understand fully the why until much time later. Happiness isn’t always about what you acquire and the material things you have. But it’s about the quality of life you have, how you enjoy the present moment and how grateful you are of all the things you have right now. Not the things you have lost, the things that hurt you or what you have ‘missed’. But its about looking within and saying that you choose to be happy with where you are now, what you have now and what your doing now. It isn’t about worrying for the future. We haven’t lived the future yet so we don’t know what is coming. The past is gone so you cant change it or go back to it. Happiness is now. You can have it anytime you want to. This is one thing that will never go out of style. Happiness is the new black. It is always fashionable to be happy. It is a must have and a want for everyone. Some people only have it when all these wonderful things are happening to them. But then in a moment it can be gone. However those who do have it always are those who, regardless of external factors, can stop and look and see what is really important and what is truly sacred. You can’t get happiness from people or things. Because those things can change. They can come and they can go. You can only get happiness from yourself.
Whether work is going well or just average for the month or whether a man you love calls you or see’s you then next time doesn’t turn up shouldn’t matter. You can’t control those things. You can’t control external factors. You can only handle yourself. Happiness is an inside job. So whether a person disappoints you or you feel hurt by a friends actions always go back to the basics. Acknowledge the circumstance, feel the emotions then go back to you. Always bring it home to you. Your happiness, your gratitude, your peace and your life. Adapt to change. Flow with it and give yourself a decent piece of happiness everyday. Even if its just starring at the sun. Happiness is wealth. When you are happy you are rich. That is the one ‘IT’ thing that will never date or fade away with time. Make happiness your staple item in your life.
Once you are happy with you. Those things in life that come up and bother you, well they just end up in the throw away basket.
