Happiness is my constant state of mind. I could easily give in to feelings of guilt, anger or sadness, but I feel so much better when I am happy. And because I feel positively about life, I radiate joy, which in turn comes back to me.
In any situation, I take a minute to look at the value of my circumstances. I believe that there is a wealth of lessons and knowledge to be found everywhere. These teachings, whether positive or negative, help to shape me into a better person. Being the best person I can be fills me with joy.
True happiness also means nurturing the well-being of my family. I pay attention to the impact my actions have on those that I love.
When my child gets injured at school, or has a falling-out with a friend, I put on my nurturing hat. I offer support and unconditional love. The healing I see when my child’s face lights up again is more than enough to make me happy.
I know I am truly at peace when every breath I take brings fulfillment. My happiness comes from spiritual and emotional soundness and honesty. Any attempts to mask true feelings with false positivity are quickly noticed because happiness comes from an honest place.
Today, I continue to live with the mindset that my happiness comes from within. My peace of mind is a result of my innate strength, resolve and perseverance. I reap good rewards from whatever is sown.
1. Can I help others to cultivate happiness even when I am feeling down?
2. How do I share my joy with those I love?
3. Do I allow others’ unpleasant moods or reactions to affect my happiness?
