I know “happiness” gets thrown around a lot. I see it all the time….”how to live a happy life,” “the keys to happiness,” etc. It’s so easy to get bogged down by things we don’t enjoy….laundry, dishes, taxes. And then we wonder why we aren’t happy.
We’re looking for some magical fix. The one thing that’s going to flip it and magically make us happy little people.
For some, we see money as being the solution. The “if I only had more money” statement.
For others its love or a baby or a new job or or or or.
But I truly believe there isn’t ONE magical fix to happiness. Happiness doesn’t come with some accomplishment, a job promotion, a check mark on the to-do list, a one time vacation of a lifetime, when we say I do, or hold that baby for the very first time.
Happiness comes from consistent cultivation of happiness from the inside. Seriously. You can be happy right now. Right where you are. Even if it looks like kids biting you in the toosh (seriously, if you didn’t see my ig post…this legit happened to me this week). Ok I admit, I wasn’t too happy in that exact moment.
But I want you to know that YOU are in control of your happiness.
You are in control of whether or not you enjoy life or not. You are in control of whether or not you let life happen to you, or if you live life to your utmost fullest capacity.
So if you’re ready to take control of your own life, rather than feeling bogged down by the constant barrage of to-dos, busy, and chaos, you have GOT to start doing these things. Are you ready for them?
1. Take care of the body you’ve been given.
2. Practice daily gratitude
3. Have a morning routine that starts your day off right
4. Freeing up life from the clutter that keeps you weighed down…physically and emotionally.
5. Always living with the goal to grow in some way…living today better than yesterday
PS-I forgot to mention, I created a free course sharing some ideas and ways I’ve been able to create income from home so that I had more freedom to live the life I want to live. I thought I’d pass it along in case you were interested too!
