So then where did happiness go? It hasn’t gone anywhere just inside you. Its an internal feeling which can be felt only internally and impossible to obtain from outside things. Sure, they may make you happy initially, but the emptiness will not go away.
Then you ask,” so, how can I be happy then?”
Follow these rules:
1. Accept That You Deserve To Be Happy.
If you cannot accept the fact that you are meant to be happy, then you can never be happy. So tell yourself that you are deserve to be happy all the time and you are definitely worthy of it every bit.
2.Accept Who You Are.
Being happy means is accepting who you are: Good, bad, ugly or whatever. Its knowing that you are doing the best you can do, and being content about it. I’m not saying that you would have to ignore what you’d like to improve in you life but if you only see what’s missing, you lose out loving what’s great about you.
3.Be Comfortable Wherever You are.
Being happy today means being comfortable where you are in the present. Live this moment. You would never know what you would be the next moment. Try to live every bit of the day.
4. Appreciate Your Life.
Be grateful for your life. Whether its your health, job,place, love, food, family or everything around. Wouldn’t you live your life differently, if you had known that you were going to live only for 3 months from now? Guess What? You are going to die one day, and what does it matter whether its 3 months or tomorrow.
5. Ask For Help.
Being happy doesn’t mean you should keep your problems to your self. It also means that you ask for support, love, guidance you get through with everything with ease.Most of us don’t ask for help because we don’t want to burden the people around us. But, if someone asked you for assistance, wouldn’t you lend a helping hand? Then why wouldn’t you let others do the same for you?
6. Do Something Nice For Someone Else.
This could be as simple as holding the door for the person behind you, or as big as volunteering your time to your favorite charity. Your problems become smaller when you are not always thinking about them. When you take the focus off yourself, it is easier to see how great your life really is.
7. Do Something That Will Move You Forward.
Being happy is taking steps that will move you forward. Movement keeps you from feeling like a victim. When you’re unhappy, formulating a plan puts you in a different place and helps change your perspective. It also put the power back in your hands!
So, what is it going to take to have you be happy today? How much more of your life do you want to live waiting for “someday” to bring you the happiness you crave? It’s up to you to create your own happiness. It’s up to you to create a life filled with joy rather than sorrow. Why not choose a life filled with happiness today?
