Give. Make most of your life. Notice the abundance that you already have in your life. Be grateful for them and make most of your time here. Being happy with what you have shows that you are grateful for the blessings in your life. It also says that you have the ability to see the goodness of life. You have the capacity to value the moments of your life.
“Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.”
― Gerard Way
Beautiful Life Calling
Every day there is so much to appreciate. When we decide to focus on the good things happening around us, we begin to be happy now.
There is so much inspiration around us only if we choose to see them.
- How beautiful is it to see the Sun rising?
- How beautiful is it to see the Sun rays beaming through?
- How beautiful it is to hear the birds through the day.
These experiences give us constant joys that make us happy from within.
“Living in the present moment means living according to truth and principle (but not according to hard rigid dogma) flexibly applied in the particular way required by the immediate situation in which you are. Such a way of living leaves you free, not ruled tyrannically by imposed regulations which may not at all suit the particular case.”
― Paul Brunton
Why Are We Not Happy Now?
For many, lifetimes go by and they don’t recognize the lasting simple joys of life. We, humans, are so occupied with our own ideas of happiness. We tend to lay blind to happiness that is right in front of us.
We somehow believe that happiness lies in the future. We create a picture of what would happiness look like in our heads and miss out on life happening right now.
“The egos manifest with feelings and emotions and this gives us a false erception of reality. We, therefore, don’t see reality clearly as it is but see external forms and events coloured by the subjective feelings within us.”
Do You Want To Be Happy Now?
We all want to be happy. We can make some changes in our life. Give. Make most of it.
Early mornings are a beautiful time to reflect and notice the beauty around. So make a conscious decision to take some time out in the morning for yourself and just be.
Also through the day, think of all the good things that have occurred. Appreciate it. Be grateful for your little accomplishments through the day.
“Be grateful for what you already have while you pursue your goals. If you aren’t grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you would be happy with more.”
― Roy T. Bennett
