Many of us are seeking happiness in people, places and things.
"If I get a new job and move to a different state then I can get away from all this bs"
"If I could just take a vacation - then everything would be ok"
"If I had this house, car, clothes, job, business ….then I'd be happy".
The problem I found with that?
Is that if I wasn't happy with who I was by myself I would never be happy with that "someone" and in fact that relationship would go down the toilet just like all the rest of them did.
I discovered that moving or changing jobs distracted me for awhile but in time things were the same as they were before.
I found that no matter what I had, what I owned or what I did to make a living - if I was not happy where I was I would not be happy there.
Happy happened when I learned to make it happen.
And when I got happy with me?
I no longer needed to be a "we".
I started looking at where I could move to instead of what I could move away from.
I discovered that I had everything I needed already; that I didn't need a new house, car, job or clothes.
How have you found happy?
I Was Looking For Happy In All the Wrong Places
Happiness is a choice? Then why am I not happy?
