About Me
I find it interesting that people search their whole lives to find happiness, only to find that it has been within their easy reach the whole time. Perhaps it is not where people are looking, it is the fact that there is no need to seek happiness in the first place. Looking in the wrong places for happiness is just the reason people are unhappy.

Most folks tend to look to external sources, such as things and other people to ‘make’ them happy. They have a case of what I call the “if only” syndrome. It goes something like this: If only I had a better spouse. If only I had a better house. If only people would do “blank” for me. If only I made more money. If only If only, if only, etc….

No one else can make anyone happy. If you are not happy to begin with, adding a second person or more into the mix will certainly not increase your odds of being any happier. Hanging out with other happy people, however, will definitely make life more fun and interesting.

I have met lots of people, both men and women who want to find someone to share their lives with. They have the mindset that if only they could find this person, that would make them happy. They go from relationship to relationship, usually blaming the other person when things don’t work out because that person did not live up to their expectation of making them happy.

Then there are the people that think they will be happier if they have a bigger house, a fancier car, and more stuff in general. There have been many studies that show that many people that have all the “stuff” are not happier, and in fact are sometimes even some of the unhappiest people out there. On the other hand, there are people that have very little in the way of material possessions that are the happiest people on earth.

So just what is happiness and how do you find it? No one can define anyone else’s happiness. Only you can decide what makes you happy. What makes you happy may not get anyone else excited. This year has been the happiest year of my life, so I decided to take a look at why.

1) First of all, I just decided to be happy. Happy is a state of mind, like love, and can’t really be defined. Because it is a feeling, you get to choose how you are going to feel about everything in your life. Start off with what makes you feel happy and apply it to all things in your life. Does this mean that you will not be down on some days? Of course not. But if you decide to be happy, there will be fewer and fewer of those days.

2) Live in the moment. Don’t worry about what is going to happen tomorrow or a month from now. It’s OK to make plans, but don’t dwell on the future. What is happening here and now is what is important. Find something, however small that you can be happy with right this very moment.

3) Don’t judge. You cannot change how other people think, feel or act. When you try to control other situations, it will just frustrate you. You can only control how you feel. If you judge others, most often you end up comparing them to yourself. I have found happiness just by being who I am, and not worrying about what other people think and feel.

4) Do something that challenges you. I try to do something that scares me a little bit every day. When you stimulate your senses, chances are you won’t let your life become boring and stagnant. This in and of itself will not bring happiness, but it sure gets your emotions flowing.

5) Love what you do. If you are making a living doing something that you hate, it’s going to be a pretty big challenge to be happy. I can’t wait to get out of bed in the morning to live my life. When you have to drag yourself around your day, it weighs you down. Find what you love to do and do it! If it is not possible to change careers right now, start working in that direction. Eventually it will happen.

6) Be grateful. Gratitude is the biggest reason that I am a happy person. I am truly grateful for everything and everyone in my life. Even situations that I wasn’t expecting and did not want. There are reasons for everything, so I am grateful and accept them with love and happiness because I know that they all play a part in my journey.

7) Love yourself. If you love who you are, other people will naturally be attracted to you. You will be happy whether you are on your own or if you are with other people. If you are interested in finding a romantic relationship, that will eventually happen because the happy person that you are will attract the right person for you. If you are already in a relationship, being happy with yourself will just enhance the attraction.

There has been much said about the pursuit of happiness. I have come to realize that there is really no need to pursue anything, you only need to feel happy. If you help others, spread love and joy in the world and give of yourself unconditionally, you will be happy.
