It seems like most people are in search for the road to happiness. Don’t you wish, there was a big sign pointing toward the road to happiness? Can you imagine how awesome it would be if there was an address to happiness and we could just put it in our GPS and boom there we were? Spoiler Alert!!! There is. You just need one thing, you have to want to be happy. In my book I wrote a step by step guide toward happiness, but if you don’t want to be happy, I am sorry, but you are out of luck and you won’t be.
I am sure you have heard this before that happiness is a choice. You choose to be happy. If someone is happy, it does not mean that they have a perfect life with no struggles, no money issues, no health issues, or no problems at all. It means that they have learned how to deal with their problems and choose to be happy regardless of all those problems.
I am not saying, money does not bring happiness, it does to a point. Money brings a sense of security, which in turn can be helpful towards your quest for happiness. What I am saying is that money is not the only factor.
Same as health, it is very important to be healthy to enjoy all the beauties of your life, but being healthy does not guarantee happiness by itself, you have to want to be happy.
Everyone has problems in their life, but we each deal with them differently. Some people rise up, try to fix the issue and move on, those are the ones who tend to be happier. And then there are those who stay down, dwell on the issue and wait for a magical hand to come and raise them up. Guess what even if that mysterious helping hand appears, they choose not to grab it.
Stop searching. The road to happiness is right in front of you. You just need to look carefully and choose to see it. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes and failing. Make mistakes, fail, but learn from them and move on. No kids learn to walk without falling, but they get up and try again until they master it. So why as an adult, as soon as we fall down, we stay down and give up?
Learn how to identify and remove what makes you unhappy, from your life. If your job is making you miserable, then start looking for other jobs. See how you can up your skills in what you enjoy doing.
If you are single and looking for the Mr or Mrs right, and it is not happening, then maybe it is time to revisit your priorities.
If you are in a relationship that is making you miserable, maybe it is time to talk to your partner and tell them how you feel and ask for help. There is no shame in asking for help as long as you are willing to accept it.
These are all little things that we as humans seem to dwell on for ever. We define an imaginary life for ourselves and if anything is less than our expectation we tend to throw the towel and give up.
Happiness is a choice. If you are looking for happiness, you have to want to be happy. If you don’t have the will to be happy, then don’t waste your time searching for it, because even if you find it, you won’t see it.
Stay happy and healthy
