We are almost at the end of winter and even though I come from a cold European country I prefer warm weather. This winter feels a little long for me than before - perhaps because for the past three years I was in Europe, and missed half of it...Either way I can't wait for more sun,longer days, beach time and camping... good times are ahead..
Today will be about happiness.. Something we are all strive for - if you ask people what they want you will hear a lot of . I just want to be happy... Don't we all? It feel like love and happiness are the top things we want to achieve. And we all want be happy all the time, and all the time... Straight away I think .. Are we being realistic?.. and is it possible to be happy all the time? Imagine that you constantly feel happy, you never feel sad, annoyed, angry or frustrated... would the happiness feel the same then? Would it have the same taste? What I'm trying to say is if you never been unhappy, you won't appreciate happiness, if you never been hungry, you won't know how good it feels to be full, if you never been cold you won't know how wonderful it is to feel warm, if you never been sick you will not know how fantastic is to be healthy, etc.
So where do we find this HAPPINESS? Don't even try to look in your drawers, it's not in the bathroom either, sometimes you may find it in the bedroom ... People, who have money will tell you it doesn't have anything to do with that..
The best place to look for it is INSIDE you! Yes, it is that simple. You need to find your happiness within you. But how? The best start is to get to know yourself better, ask yourself few questions ' Who am I, What do I like, what do I dislike? What is it that bring smile to my face? Do I like my job? Am I happy in my relationship? Do I hang out with people who support me, who accept me the way I am?etc,
If you understand that happiness is something you can feel not all the time( hopefully few times a day). To be able to experience this feeling everything in your universe must work... So it is not en easy task to achieve... If you satisfied with major parts of your life, then it is not so hard to work and try to change things that don't work.. if there is a lot needing changing, maybe it is a good idea to look for help, there is plenty of support out there, from therapies to psychologists, and more.
I'm a coffee drinker - I buy coffee every morning on the way to work - that simple task bring a smile to my face... I'm fortunate enough that I can afford to spend $4 and have a beautiful flat white, which I enjoy every single morning at my desk... Lately there was discussion at work how much money you can save if you put aside those $4 a day and what a waste of money it is to buy coffee .. since you can drink Moccona at work for free... I heard someone calculated if you put aside those $4 a day after 12 months you can buy a ticket to Europe... Great !!!! If that's what is going to make your happy do it!!I love my coffee and I won't give up because the feeling from that liquid feels so much better for me than that ticket to Europe! Full stop.
Do what brings smile to your face, it doesn't matter what it is - reading, walking, running, shopping, travelling , extreme sports, concerts, dancing, learning new languages, you name it... Find within yourself the things you like or you would like to try and go for it... You have no money now? Put aside this $4 and do it in 6 months!!!
There is a lot of things that bring smile to my face - food, family and friend I love spending time with, books, music, nature, travelling - that's just few that comes to my head... Of course my little Gucio shoes bring a smile to my face every single day - but that's kind of obvious:)
Keep searching for your own Happines... it is there,, keep looking and I can assure you - YOU WILL FIND IT:)
