Every now and then, it is a good idea to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy. To often, we are looking ahead pursuing the next big thing in life, something to make it better, for you to do better, seeking that missing thing to make your life better.
We think we will be happy if we can just get that promotion, find a partner, have a baby to love, earn some more money, win lotto, buy that new car, buy a nicer house… an endless yearning for something more. We are mistaken. We need to learn how to just be happy in the moment. Appreciate the little things we have in our life right now.
Let’s not look for reasons to be unhappy…let’s focus on what we do have in our life, and see the reasons why we should be happy. While we pursue happiness… contentment will never be found. Contentment is a realisation of what you already have.
Happiness will come to those who have an appreciation for the moment. Sometimes the greenest grass is right beneath our feet. Real happiness comes from within. Doing good unto others, being helpful, kind and loving, and being true to yourself… this is what will bring you real happiness.
Take care, Karen.
“Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like,
and enjoying it for everything that it is.”
