Are you living your life to the fullest? Are you happy with who, what, or where you are today? Are you doing what you love?
Most of us are searching for something, or sometime in the future when we will finally be happy. But we know from last week’s attack that there are no guarantees there will be a tomorrow. Life is precious and we must appreciate each day.
Before the attack, what brought many of us happiness were material things. Now we are seeing that family, friends, and being our true selves is what life is all about. Before the attack, we may have known that we wanted to be happy, but we put ourselves on hold
because there were responsibilities, bills to pay, and we knew we could work on being happy tomorrow. Now, we have learned that we may only have today.
So, How Can You Be Happy Today? Follow These Easy
1. Accept That You Deserve To Be Happy: Being happy today is accepting that you deserve to be happy. If you do not think that this is true, then no wonder you are not. The messages you tell yourself determine which direction your life will take. Tell yourself that is ok to be happy, and that you will strive for happiness each day.
2. Accept Who You Are: Being happy today is accepting who you are, the good, the bad and the ugly. It is knowing that you are doing the best you can do, and being content with that. I am not saying to ignore what you would like to improve in your life, but if you only see what is missing, you lose out on loving what is great about you.
3. Be Comfortable Where You Are: Being happy today means being comfortable where you are in the present, not where you would like to be in the future. It is about being in awe for the opportunity to learn something new each day. You do not know what your life will bring tomorrow, so enjoy where you are today.
