The Pursuit of Happiness
Have you ever found yourself wondering what happened to your joy? It seemed to have crept in slowly, bit by bit somewhere along the way and now you're in a rut and not really sure how you got there? While it's easy to think you're so far away from feeling good again, it can be as simple as a few small changes, and an internal decision, to get yourself feeling on top of the world again!
One of the first suggestions I have for creating happiness, is to create some space. Now by that I don't necessarily mean physically, although clearing out the clutter in your home is a GREAT way to start feeling good again. 'Stuff' has the tendency to weigh us down energetically and it will be very freeing to clear out anything you don't need anymore – you'll feel so much lighter for doing it.
What I really mean by making space however, isn't specific to any area of your life, it's wherever you most need it. The first place I would start is to make some space in your schedule for you. Take at least 20 minutes each day, even if it means waking up a little earlier, to start your day by taking care of yourself. Whether you use that time to write in a journal, listen to your favourite music, work out, meditate or just enjoy some quiet time, treat it as sacred.
Another way to create space is in your friendships. Who are you spending the most time with and what impact are they having on your life? If you find yourself being negative, consider if the people around you are feeding that negativity… if so, you may want to consider whether spending this much time with them is healthy? Alternatively, maybe it's something you could discuss with them and agree to start pulling each other up and being more positive. You'd be surprised how much easier it is to make these changes if you're both aware and looking out for each other.
Finally, I would say that the most powerful way to make yourself happy is to DECIDE to be happy. That's easier said than done, but we have so much more power than we choose to believe! At the end of the day it's we who decide how we will feel. Don't let life choose your moods for you – how you choose to react to any situation is entirely within your control. Empower yourself with the knowledge that it's up to you ALWAYS to decide what mood you're in.
So be the guardian of your thoughts and CHOOSE HAPPINESS!
