Don’t put off your happy life.
What does it mean to be happy?
How do you know when you’re happy?
Is it finding financial freedom? Owning fancy, name brand things? Perhaps it’s being in a position of power…
Those things may make you feel better about your position in life, your status. That in fact, is the definition of happy: feeling or showing pleasure and contentment because of your life, situation, etc.
But do they define the core of your happiness? And don’t they take time to cultivate and achieve?
So, if that’s how you define happy, you’re telling me that you’re willing to wait for it? That you don’t need or deserve it right now?
I beg to differ.
We all are worthy of some happiness, today. Right now. Even if it’s just a little slice.
Take out that sunshine list of yours, those things that make you smile, and start working on them. Embrace them.
Spend more time with loved ones. Use that vacation time you earned. Pursue your hobbies. Do what brings your pleasure, what makes you content.
