How happy are you?
There are too many days we just walk through our lives. We know we aren’t truly happy but we cannot figure out why. There are things that need changing, but we don’t know where to start. Happiness, we all want it. We all want to feel content and happy in our every day life. So where do you think you need to start? Where can we add more happiness to your life?
So……….happiness appears to be an elusive state. Throughout the ages all walks of life have sought to define it. Search for it. Happiness is more than just simply a positive mood. Happiness is a state of well-being that that lends itself to living a good life, with a sense of meaning and deep satisfaction.
Happiness is not the result of bouncing from one excitement to the next. Achieving real happiness usually involves times of when we can be at our lowest, as we discover where our happiness comes from Money is important to happiness, but only to a certain point. Money buys the freedom from worry about the basics in life, but doesn’t mean if we have it, we will be happy. some of the most unhappy people I know are rolling in the money. Many other factors such as your life circumstances, achievements, marital status, social relationships, and family dynamics—all influence how happy you are. Or can be.
Much of your happiness is under personal control.
Regularly allowing yourself the small pleasures in life, Getting absorbed in activities, setting and meeting your goals , maintaining close social ties, are all actions that increase life satisfaction.
So now I have an exercise for you.
Look at the life elements below. Breathe. Think about each one. Now rate how happy or satisfied you feel about each area of your life. No editing! No cheating!! No one is going to judge you if you rate an area low. It is a good thing. You just identified the areas of your life that need some work.
You have every right to feel exactly as you. I get it. But you also have an obligation to yourself to realize moving forward into happiness can be done, and entirely up to you alone. No more hiding.
This is about you being honest and real. No more pretending. Starting now, you are going to strive to be a better you! You are not going to worry about what anyone thinks about who you are and what you want. Put your big girl, or big boy pants here. Shit is about to get REAL!!!
Be open. Listen to your gut reaction. Read each word below and then score how you feel about that part of your life. If you give yourself a zero, that means you feel pretty shitty about it. If you are sitting middle of the road, perhaps you hear “whatever” inside your head that is about a five. A seven would mean pretty good, and a ten score means that part of your life is SWEET!! You can use the scale 0-10 and any number on it. If I have missed any elements of your life in the list below, feel free to add it to better reflect your own life and personal circumstances.
OK Get started!!
