I’ve noticed lately that many people
If I lived somewhere else, I would be happy
If I only had more money, I would be happy
If I had this item, then I would be happy
If my significant other would just do this, then I would be happy
Well the list could go on for days.
Sometimes I think people put up barriers against happiness. Its like they make up any and every excuse to be miserable…. almost as if their ultimate goal is to be unhappy and make others have sympathy for them.
I started noticing this as people around me were telling me how miserable they are living where they live… How miserable they are because they’ve gained weight… How miserable they are with their spouse, because they no longer do something they used to do…
Blah, Blah, Blah….
Do I sound a little insensitive? Well, I kind of am. You see, I am a little sick of seeing the people I love be unhappy because they would rather seek sympathy and blame everything around them for their unhappiness. Is this easier? :/
I realize everyone has their ups and downs, I know I do… For many its a struggle to find that happy place within… I’ve struggled. But through all the ups, downs, and struggles… I have learned one thing…
Happiness is a choice. Its found within yourself… not in others, or money, or location…
Yes, those things may contribute to your happiness at times, but real consistent happiness is found within.
So if you are one of those people that keep making every excuse under the sun to not be happy. STOP!! Make changes, and smile.
Life’s to short to be miserable all the time.
OK, I’ve said my peace. Hopefully those around me that really need to read this post, do!
Hope you all are having a fabulous Sunday! Off to clean my car with a smile… haha… CIAO!
