Are There Keys To A Happy Life?
Author: Byron Pulsifer, © 2012
There are keys to happiness and the good news is that you already have them, and if you don't think you do.
Here are a few keys to a happy life:
- Live for who you are what you have. Forget about trying to keep up with neighbors or friends who display new toys and bigger houses.You may be a very strong person in that you have very specific and strong opinions about a number of issues and concerns but if you do not use your personal power to initiate positive change, you are as much part of the problem as the problem itself.
Another key to a happy life is to never fuel your being by laboring bitterness towards other people in any way shape of form. Bitterness does not forebode well for a happy person because bitterness eats away at one’s spirit and tends to make this person unable to really extend love and compassion. The holding of resentment internally causes deep mental stress where this can lead to conditioning one to feel despair, or unease with their own psychic inner spirit.
The other aspect to being happy is to challenge yourself each day to see who you can help, or bring a smile to their face, or to assist in some little way. Assistance does not have to be a big deal, it just has to be a help for someone who needs your spiritual strength, your inner strength, and you ability to see the positive in all things no matter what first appears as terrible, disheartening or sorrowful.
Happiness also means the inner ability to look at each obstacle in life as a steeping stone and not as an excuse to quit. The person who sees obstacles as a mere stepping stone realizes that only the weak cannot see past it, or move past it. Happiness is the evolution within you that understands that part of being truly happy means a complete control of your own abilities and passion for life that sees no obstacles but only possibilities.
Now, take a few minutes and add your own keys to happiness. I am sure your list will grow and grow.
