Today post is a little bit different, it’s actually inspired by a recent survey I took. The survey asked several people what happiness meant to them.
Is happiness being thankful for what you have or is happiness something you have to go out and get?
You could give a short or long explanation on what happiness meant to you.
Happiness to me means being thankful in all circumstances and trials. Happiness is being thankful for what you have and making the best of life.
If you would have asked me several years ago what happiness was I would have given a different answer. I was in a different place in my life than I am now. I continue to evolve but my happiness has expanded. I stopped putting conditions on people and even things.
Many times I’ve heard people say that another person brings them happiness. Several times I’ve heard people say material possessions brings them happiness. I learned that material things and even people only bring contemporary happiness. Only a moment of gratification and satisfaction that soon disappears.
So many times we put limits on the people we love and our happiness is only temporary until they upset us.
Feelings are funny, feelings can be inconsistent like having mood swings. One minute we are happy and the next we can be sad. Feelings are constantly changing like the seasons. Never feel sorry for your own emotions. But take time to evaluate them accordingly.
People will let you down always if you put them before God. Many times we put so much faith in people that they end up failing our expectations. Setting the bar high, and putting limits on people is a setup for failure.
God says you should not put anything or anyone before him. You will always end up losing so much more if you do that. You can end up losing yourself in the process. Have you ever felt like you lost yourself? I have. It’s not easy to admit that you have lost yourself.
I see this so much of people going back with a person or place to be “happy” and they end up right back in that dark place. The person or place brought heartaches, drama, hurt and pain. Why would you want to subject yourself back to the person or place you lost your happiness in the first place? Be free and start over and find your true happiness.
God can heal the broken hearted and restore your happiness. We must live according to his plan. You can’t be out of the will of God and think that you’re going to blessed. It’s true you will have trouble but if you trust God you will ALWAYS have the victory.
It’s so important to be a person of forgiveness and have empathy. But don’t be foolish, use your discernment wisely. Always forgive and love whole heartedly. Positive vibes and positive mind leads a positive life. You attract what and who you are.
Do you remember the first time you felt sadness for thinking about when you once were happy or in a good place in life? I have. The past is the past for a reason. If the past tries to call,send it to voicemail.
Thank God for Jesus
We all have personal issues that will try to consume us and mess with our minds. That is a trick of the enemy. Remember no matter what the issue may be, you are more than a conqueror. There is so much to be thankful for in life, when you start being thankful for what you have, and who you are then you realize you have more than enough.
Envy and jealousy can rob you of your own true happiness. Whenever you think about not being happy, think of the person who wishes they could have a fraction of the happiness you have. Living for God is true happiness. God gives us hope and purpose.
Happiness lies within all of us. Never forget that!
