Pursuit of Happiness๐Ÿ˜Š

#tuesdaythoughts

โ—พ๏ธMost humans spend their entire life in pursuit of happiness, but many never

stand a chance of finding true happiness. So what is the reason that so many people are not happy?

What is the secret to happiness?

There are actually three

important roadblocks to our personal happiness.

โœ”๏ธThe first, and most critical, hurdle to finding true happiness is that we do not

know ourselves. The real secret to happiness is knowing what is important to you personally.

The simple truth is that there is not one universal path to happiness because every person is different and has different dreams and needs.

While for one person creating something might be the path to happiness for another person it might be nurturing others. However, we are too often focused on the wrong goals because we listen to popular culture or other people. If we spend the time and energy to really concentrate on our dreams, and shut out the

distractions, then we can find the key to unlocking our own happiness.

โœ”๏ธAnother roadblock in our pursuit of happiness is giving too much power to things that do not matter. I have a friend who obsesses over having a clean house and making sure her family is clean and neat whenever they leave home. (Me)๐Ÿ˜ƒ

She gripes about how much time these obsessions take away from her time with her family. I am the opposite. While I do wish my house was cleaner I decided when my son was

born that when I was old I would not look back and regret having a messy house but that I would regret not spending time with my child. While cleaning is on my priority list, it always falls below my child and when he is old and gray I am confident he will remember that as well as I do. Too often we spend a lot of time and energy focused on things that do not matter in the long run. Letting the dishes sit in the sink one night while you play a game with your child or pursue a hobby you love will contribute more to your happiness than making sure

you do those dishes and then missing out on the life you love.

โœ”๏ธThe final critical element that blocks true happiness for many people is not

giving the things that make us happy enough weight in our life. Too often we

dwell on the things we do not have–the bigger house, the newer car, the better job–rather than what we already have that makes us happy–the significant relationships, the happy home, the rewarding career. The next time you feel unhappy make a list of all that is going right in your life. Chances are that list is a lot longer than you thought and simply reviewing it will make you feel better.

The pursuit of happiness should be a lifelong journey but the path to finding

true happiness can be rewarding and enjoyable if we remember to know ourselves, let go of the things that do not matter, and remember the things that do.

Looking to Enjoy Life…read my top 10 tips๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

Happy Sunday, hope these tips help you as you go about your day……

1.Devotion: An Enthusiastic Zeal

Devotion in a relationship keeps you away from being an infidel. It keeps your loyalty to your company and of course, your eagerness to simply do better in life. Just look at the numerous nuns who have chosen a vocation of devoutness.

2. Grace: Keeping It All In

Despite all the heartaches and pains in life, individuals should struggle to adapt to a life filled with grace. You need not be beautiful if you exude grace as with it, everything seems to glow so easily.

3.Idealism: The Pursuit Of Perfection

Despite everything else, each individual should always pursue idealistic ways. In times of chaos, need or dispute, it may be the only virtue that will keep you sane. And after, idealism will allow you to keep your humanity too.

4.Love, Love, Love.

It is truly the purest of all emotions and exactly what you need to make you want better things. And because, โ€œall you need is love.โ€

5.Mercy: Knowing When To Be Powerful

Understanding the concept of forgiveness is one thing but being able to give mercy is another. In this cruel world that people live in, mercy is a saving grace.

6.Sensitivity: A Touching Asset

Knowing exactly when to react and what to do about a certain situation is too lovely especially between individuals who have no power to say their needs out loud.

7.Wonder: Insatiable Curiosity

To be continuously amazed by things is crucial as it revitalizes the human spirit despite failing circumstances.

8.Service: Giving Back When It Matters

The ability of helping others is a very powerful tool in satisfying the inner self. It is an act that is never fails to bring smile to every oneโ€™s faces.

9.Knowledge: The Power To Reason

Knowing what to do, how to act, when to respond and how to do it are important things to own in times of joy and pain. Being able to process an idea has been the only thing that has separated man from the other creatures. Constantly sharpen your intellect by feeding your mind with ideas, thoughts and information.

10.Joyfulness: A Smile To Give๐Ÿ˜„

Because life is not always easy, finding reasons to smile is as important as physique and intellect. My fav one!

3 Simple Ways to Live Happy Now๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

#behappy

๐Ÿ’œEveryone strives to be happy but the mistake that everyone makes is that they think that happiness is some kind of finishing line in a race. Once you crossed that line, you will live happily ever after. That is NOT true. Happiness is a choice! You can choose to make your life happy. So here are a few ways you could try:

1. Let go of past memories.

Everyone has both sad and happy moments. So forget about your painful memories. Whatโ€™s in the past stays in the past. Instead focus on your good memories and move on.

2. Be optimistic.

Always try looking on the bright side of things. Look for the silver lining behind each dark cloud. For example, if you had an unfortunate accident and your car is badly dented, but on the bright side is that nobody got hurt and that dent in your car can be repaired. There is always a bright side to look on so be optimistic!

3.Donโ€™t let the small stuff bug you.

Remember all the small petty stuff that used to bother you? Forget all about it and focus on the bigger picture. Life is too short to be worry about trivial stuff.

I live for the moments when I’m in that dark place and my friends come in shining light, they don’t make me seem crazy and don’t judge. I hope soon when I’m well, I can return the favor and be somebody’s light in their dark corner.ย
