If you’re happy because something outside of you exists then what are you going to do if it ceases to exist?
Everything is temporary.
When you choose to be happy because you got the promotion, signed the deal, bought the house, got the ring then are you really fully happy?
Can you be fully happy if your happiness is based on something that’s fleeting?
The excitement of the promotion wears off.
The thrill of signing a new deal fades.
A new home soon becomes simply home.
The ring becomes day-to-day married life.
Every event is temporary.
Sure they may be exciting and joyous, but they never last.
Look back on your life and you’ll see this.
Happiness based on the external is also fleeting.
So, what if instead, you made the decision to be happy in this moment simply because you’re here and breathing?
You have hundreds of things to be grateful for (even when circumstances seem shitty you can still choose to be grateful).
Your happiness is a choice.
This moment is an opportunity to choose happiness simply because in this moment, you’re breathing—you exist.
Remember, you absolutely can Love Your Life and Live Your Dreams. It all begins within.
