Secret to Finding and Keeping Happiness
What I am about to tell you may seem like a concept that isn't new, but if it was practiced more then more people would be and stay in a place of happiness.
The only Secret you need to know: The gift of Gratitude
How many times a day do you look around and thank the Divine source for all the amazing blessing in your life? How many times do you stop and look for the amazing blessings in your life. We can become so consumed with the idea that we won't be happy until we have achieved some goal, bought some new toy, or found the right person in our life.
The truth is those things won't give you the happiness you seek. What it will give you is temporary fulfillment. For a brief moment, maybe a week, maybe a month, or even several, you will say, whatever I am happy. But then all of a sudden that thing will no longer do it for you. You may still enjoy it but not like you did when you first got it.
If however you spend time each day keeping a gratitude journal and working at seeing blessings and when I say blessings, okay I'm not talking about being a millionaire. If you got up today and have all your five senses, can walk, even the fact that you got up today, those are All blessings. If you have friends, a family you can lean on in difficult and in good times, a child, etc. Those are all blessings. I hope you will join me in starting a gratitude journal. If you start your day spending even just a few moments being thankful for all the blessings in your life, and Not focusing on what you don't have, you will find your happiness. And by the way, no this doesn't meant you still don't aim for those things, its just that you aren't so focused on what they will give you when you have it.
If you can learn to do this practice, you will not only find happiness, but keep it.
Blessings and Light
