Go Find Your Happiness

Have you ever been in a place in your life where things just feel off? I feel like that has been me this past week. Hopefully you can relate to this - I just want to share my personal experience in the hopes that I can inspire someone else with it.


I think we get so wrapped up in what society defines happiness as. Or, we compare ourselves. We say, “Oh I’ll be happy when _____.” We constantly seek contentment in what’s next.


But happiness comes from within us. I know it’s the most cliche thing to say, and it’s the last thing you want to hear when you’re experiencing a hard time, but it’s true. Happiness comes from within, and it’s not going to suddenly appear in our lives when we get to some magical place.


You’ll only find contentment and happiness from within yourself, right here and now. I find that our life’s journey is so much more pleasant when we can be content with what we have, and at the same time still strive for bringing more of what we desire into our lives. I’m always helping the women in my mastermind group with this, and this is a lesson that I’m constantly learning myself!


And I know that it can be hard to choose happiness. It’s still hard for me sometimes! I’ve had to dive really deep over this past week to find my happiness - so know that I’m right there with you.


For example, this week I received some really sh*tty news about my professional life. The old me would’ve been pissed and would’ve held onto that anger. The old me probably would’ve numbed out her emotions with alcohol too. But I’ve learned that that’s no way to live. There is a better way!


Instead, I’ve allowed myself to feel the disappointment and sadness that came from it so those emotions could pass through me. I’ve spent a lot of quiet time in meditation and I’ve kept my mind on the bigger picture: that no matter what, I’m being taken care of and guided by a higher power. In the grand scheme of things, I am still ok and still have plenty of blessings in my life. And thinking that way has helped me to come back to my inner happiness.


A lot of people have numbed themselves to their emotions so much that they can’t fully experience what happiness feels like anymore. Ask yourself, “What does happiness feel like to me? What does it look like in my life right now?” Let go of what the world has told you happiness should look like, and think of what it truly feels like and looks like in your own life.


Then ask yourself, “Am I happy with where I am right now?” And if the answer is no, then what can you do to find happiness in this very moment? Take out a piece of paper and write down a list of all the things that make you happy. If you need some examples, my list includes being in nature, having a peaceful morning, drinking coffee, laughing with my friends, reading books, traveling, riding motorcycles, etc.


Write your own list, and then DO the first thing that comes to your mind! If you can’t physically experience what makes you feel happy in this very moment, then close your eyes and visually experience it. Visualization is so powerful - you can actually trick your mind into feeling that way right now just by imagining it.


This is where the Law of Attraction comes into play. By experiencing something that makes you feel happy, whether physically or by visualizing, you will call more things into your reality that make you feel happy!


Above all, remember that you are always being taken care of and guided along your life’s journey. Take a step back, get out of your own head, and look at the bigger picture of your life. Feel grateful for the many blessings you have in your life, and happiness will come.


You have the power within yourself to choose joy and happiness. Right here, right now. It really can be that easy. It’s us humans with our monkey-minds who overcomplicate it. So get out of your own head, get out of your own way, and go find your happiness.
