“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have,
but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”
The whole month of February will be devoted to ‘Happiness’.
I think many of us have lived our lives from ‘the outside in’. We’re waiting to be happy until we get something; new job, new relationship, more money, new car, new hairstyle (that’s me), fill in your blank.
When we so busy wanting something else – we forget to appreciate what we do have. There’s a lot of stuff we’ve accumulated over the years that we did want at some point. It made us happy at one point. But …. here’s the secret – none of those things are responsible for our happiness.
I’ve come to realize that true happiness – and living a more ‘balanced life’ comes from ‘the inside out’ – appreciating my life right now – just the way it is and recognizing that I already have everything I need to be happy – because all I need is Me.
Happiness is truly an Inside Job!
Tell us what you appreciate in your life right now.
Here’s to living a Heart-Centered Life!
