I got up this morning and decided to be happy! why you ask? All it takes is a mere decision!
A wise man once said, "Nothing can bring you happiness but yourself." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
The true meaning of happiness does not depend on the quantity of material assets accumulated over a lifetime. why?
Because in the end, we all reach the "last station'', just as we came into the world, stark naked.
When was the last time you asked yourself, what has to happen in order for me to be happy? What conditions need to be met in order to feel satisfied?
What is stopping me from being able to feel happy right now?
The truth is that happiness is not dependent on any situation or external circumstance; But rather, a choice we have to do every day, no matter what is happening around us.
Happiness and joy are emotions we must create within us; from a place of self-love and self-worth, gratitude for possessing precious opportunity - the GIFT of LIFE!
Happiness comes when we experience the feeling of love and are able to unselfishly share it with others.
Love and happiness are not something we can buy in the local supermarket or the Internet; Rather, we create these feelings in ourselves, when we realize what is really important in life.
What good is a fancy car parked outside of your home, if there is no one sitting next to you on the passenger side?
What value does money and property or a seaside villa, if at the end of the day, we go to bed alone?
It requires a change in consciousness; Only then can our hearts be opened to the truth.
We are happy when we realize that the greatest joy is when we have someone to share our life experiences with; By virtue of their presence in our lives.
Happiness is experienced in maintaining healthy and loving relationships with those we love and appreciate; not taking anything for granted!
The rest is just a poor imitation of the real thing!
People come in and out of our lives, situations change in an instant, but happiness is a choice we can make right here and NOW!
