Happiness is in the eye of the beholder, but only if the beholder is truly happy. No amount of money, sex, possessions or stimulants can truly compare to that of a person who has everything within. It’s like a ripple effect.
Think about that person on the road yesterday who cut you off. You in turn, flick someone off. Your drive home is aggravated. Behaviors are contagious. I dare you to make little changes like that for a week. See how it effects you.
Ask yourself the following questions:
1) Who do you see when you wake up and look in the mirror? Answer this inwardly as well as outwardly. Change starts with acknowledgment. So does acceptance.
2)When you get hurt, who feels the pain?
3)If you don’t succeed at life, who will you really let down?
So often we, as a people, find ourselves becoming the victim. Catch yourself before it happens.
It’s not wrong to be selfish all the time. Get that notion out of your head. The holidays are coming. Do something for yourself even if it’s something small. Try to avoid that holiday depression. It’s alright to moderate.
You must put yourself first before all others. You are the only thing that matters. You have to be happy with yourself. You have to live with yourself. Make yourself happy. It’s only then that you’re able to make someone else happy.
I’m making a resolution to do these actions, however small, whenever I’m having a horrible day. I repeated them many times after I had this conversation yesterday. Make today yours.. now it’s off for my cup of coffee.
