I want to be happy. Haven’t we all said that a time or two?
Have you ever examined exactly what your happy is? A client said to me I want to be happy. So I asked my client to illustrate what his happy is. An interesting thing happened, he didn’t know. Yes he said, friends and family etc the staples but not what makes him happy.
So I guess my question to you is can you define what makes you happy? Have you ever really asked yourself the question? I had a difficult time with the question at first myself but then I thought about it and I realized that I have two happy’s.
I get joy and pleasure (happy) out of helping and being of service to others. True happiness for me is knowing I have contributed back to the improvement of the world around me. That’s what I call an accomplished happy. A deserved, or earned happy.
The other is my alone (Mr Bronx) time. Hiking, Boating, even watching TV. My reflecting Happy where I do most my self work, thinking, emotional growth and offer gratitude. I call that my emotional happy.
Bottom line whatever your happy is you can only find it if you know where to look.
In all health,
