Dreams and desires are put into your life to inspire, to direct and guide you, not to solely define your level of happiness. It's so easy to fall into the trap of telling yourself "I'll be happy when" I finally go on vacation, retire, marry or get my dream job. In this week's Sun-day design I want you to redesign your approach to chasing happiness inside instead of outside of you.
Happiness is a wonderful sometimes fleeting feeling. Like catching fireflies in a jar the key is to press the pause button when you feel good and cherish it. Enjoy the feeling of big and small things. Appreciate the strength, talent, and gifts born inside you. Choose to be happy for that.
Give it a try. As you navigate this week find one person, place or thing you are grateful for. Now substitute the the lens of gratitude for happiness. Here's an example, shift your thinking that I am grateful for my home to I am happy for the love that shelters and nourishes the people I live with and love. That last version makes feel good and energizing to me.
It's important to remember the experiences that will make you happy can change over time. Finding happiness inside, appreciating who you are and the gifts you're meant to share is what warms your heat and puts a smile on your face. So please a comment and share what about you makes you feel happy.
The life we experience is designed to help us grow. My wish is that you learn from me as much as I learn from you. Share your life lessons and let's build together.
