Are You Happy? What is it in your life that would make you happy? Do you embrace inner happiness? What is it that would make your life more fulfilling? How we feel about ourselves can determine how long we live.
As you go about your daily life you will notice people who seem very pleasant in public but behind closed doors they are living in hell within themselves. What is holding you back from your happiness? Are you struggling with unhappiness, sadness, inner turmoil? These things may come from unhappy or unhealthy relationships, a job that is disliked, unfavorable circumstances, and some people just don’t know why they are unhappy.
How can you be happy? What can you do to find the happiness that you deserve?
In this article, I am going to share with you ways that you can find happiness, and make the most out of every day.
Happiness is decided ahead of time.
When you wake up in the morning, do you get up dreading the day ahead? If so, begin changing this habit.
Make up your mind to have a great day. Make up your mind that you are going to have a day of victory.
• Thank God that you are alive
• Start the day off in a grateful attitude
• Count your blessings
• Declare that “this is going to be a great day”
Being grateful is one of the keys to living a happy life. Instead of complaining about what you don’t have be grateful for what you do have. Being grateful can turn around relationships, save marriages, and even save jobs.
• Express gratitude on your job (be thankful for your job and think about the people that are unemployed , instead of complaining about to work load, be thankful for the extra work that would allow you to stay employed,
• Don’t take your health for granted
• Make it a point to make everyday a special day
Find something positive to be thankful for. Don’t take life for granted. I heard a story from a young man I went to school with who was in a terrible accident in which his car caught fire. He was trapped inside and no one was able to get him out; the rescue and paramedics had not come yet. As people stood around this young man said that two people in white came and got him out. Later after the rescue and paramedics team came, he asked for the two men who pulled him out of the car, no one saw these two men or who they were, but neither could anyone tell how he had gotten out of the car. He is grateful everyday for life, as that day could have been his last day.
We need to realize life is very short. Tell your loved ones that you love them every day; give them a hug every day.
On the gloomiest day just remember that just above those clouds the sun is shining.
If you found out you only had a few weeks to live would you live it being unhappy, upset, holding grudges?
Our mind naturally wants to think about unhappy and negative things but you have to change your focus. But you must stop focusing on the negative, and realize that every day is a gift from God. Look at what is right instead of what is wrong.
Decide how you are going to live. Sometime we are not grateful for something until it is or almost taken away from us. My mom used to always say “you never miss your water until your well runs dry”.
Yes, it may be hard to stay focused or positive when things are going wrong, when we lose our jobs, when death happens. But we must work at train our mind to see the good and condition ourselves to focus on the positive.
Circumstances may change the way you feel but it doesn’t
have to change your mind. Don’t let a few clouds sour your life. Life is full of difficulties and adversities but keep your head up. It is natural by human nature to be discouraged but the bible says “count it all joy when you fall in to various temptations “.
If you don’t feel like you have the strength to go through, ask God to give you strength and help you to keep a good attitude. When you face disappointments, your feelings will get in the way and tell you that you won’t make it but don’t believe your feelings. Talk back to those negative thoughts and replace them with positive declarations of faith by saying ” it will be a great day, God has favor in my future, My trust is in the Lord because I know He cares for me, I will not be defeated, my hope is in the Lord”
