Happiness & being happy. Something we all want, something we all need and something we all should have and be.
Yet so many of us are allowing others to control our happiness. We allow other peoples actions to affect us and our moods.
Yes life comes with it’s challenges, and it is not always going to be easy and unfortuently we cannot control other people or situations – but what we can control is the reaction in which we give.
When tough times arise, you can choose to allow that to consume you & focus on the negative of it, which usually ends up making you feel worse or you can allow yourself to be happy and fight through the hard shit. Which, in the long run will make you feel better. People and situations are powerless without our reactions.
We are all to good at making excuses, blaming others, and situations – when the truth is, it is only making us unhappy because we are allowing it to.
You are allowed to feel down, to feel upset when bad times arise, after all you are only human, but you cannot dwell on and only focus on the tough times and then moan that you are in fact unhappy.
Unhappiness attracts more unhappiness. It’s the law of attraction. What you give your energy to you attract to yourself. So focus more on the positives & on what truly makes you smile inside.
You cannot depend on someone else to make you happy. Happiness is something you create yourself. It comes from within. There is good in everything, all you have to do is be willing to find that and focus on it. Never allow your happiness to be controlled by something you cannot control.
You need to accept and learn that things are not always going to go our way. We cannot always depend on other people to respect us or our feelings. We cannot always have it all. But that does not limit our happiness, or mean we cannot be happy at all.
Happiness starts with you. Not with your job, not with your relationships, not with your money – but with YOU.
Happiness is the most important thing in this life, without it you do not have much.
Never allow somebody else to dictate your happiness and Never allow somebody to remove the smile from your face.
You have the power. You are in control of your life. And you are the decider on your happiness, after all – Happiness is a very personal thing, and it has nothing to do with anyone else!
Whatever you decide to do in life, make sure it makes YOU happy.
