First of all, I would like to say thank you for all your kind comments and a great response to my last blog. I really appreciate every single one of you.
So….Happiness. Everyone is searching for it, but are we ever going to find it? My philosophy, however strange it may sound, is to stop that search and just be. Focus on what inspires you, focus on what brings the most joy to your soul and the moments of happiness will fly into your life naturally. Happy moments always come and go. Happiness is a temporary state, not an ongoing thing.
We need to embrace the seasons of life we go through. We need to appreciate when our life blooms and the skies are blue, but we need to be patient while the dark clouds are being blown away, so the sun can start shining again. And here is the truth: If we were always happy, we wouldn’t appreciate the good and happy moments of life the same way as we do when they come back to us again and again. So, how about that? Can you relate to this way of looking at happiness?
So, as I already mentioned, do what brings you joy and what inspires you. It will lead you to happy moments. Focus on what you desire and take daily action towards it. Enjoy the little things in life, the things you often take for granted. Be grateful. Gratitude turns what you have into enough. Celebrate your achievements, no matter how small they may be. Tell yourself that you love and appreciate yourself. Do good in the world and smile at people even without reason, it will not only shift their energy or make their day, but yours too. And most importantly, be who you are, embrace your uniqueness and your individuality. There has never been anybody like you and there is never going to be.
A few simple ways to change your thoughts instantly
When I find myself in a negative thinking pattern, I try to talk myself out of it. I must admit, It’s not always easy, but it works. First, I acknowledge the negative self-talk I’m having, then, forgive myself. After I forgive myself, I start listing things I’m grateful for. For example: my wonderful family, my health, the roof over my head, the food on my table etc. This shifts my energy from the low vibrations to some higher frequencies. Then, I repeat some positive affirmations. Affirmations, are an amazing way to start feeling better fast.

What you focus on expands
Lately, there has been so much going on in my life. Many exciting opportunities are coming my way, inspiration is flowing, and a new projects are lining up. But there are also difficulties. Many significant changes are happening, which sometimes scare me, but I know they are clearing my path, so the fresh, new things can come my way. This made me realise, what I focus on always expands. When I focus on the exciting things in my life, rather than the areas which aren’t currently working, I feel happier. When I look at the challenges then, they are not so overwhelming and frightening anymore. Try it yourself and see how you feel. Focus on the good and it will always expand.
A thought to keep
“Happiness cannot be travelled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.” ~Denis Waitley
