Is it not reasonable that we should all expect to have happiness in our lives? If you are not happy what can you do about it?
A good way to start is to make a list of all the things that make you happy. Even the smallest of things. How can you implement these into your life more regularly? What do you need to change to bring more happy things and less of the things that do not make you happy?
Maybe it is unrealistic to expect complete happiness all the time, but often a little change can make all the difference between feeling happy and content and the opposite feelings.
Happiness doesn’t always mean that everything is perfect, but it does mean that you have decided to look beyond those imperfections and get the best that you can out of your life. Happiness doesn’t come from without, it comes from within.
‘The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance, the wise grow it under their feet’.
James Oppenheim – American poet, novelist and editor, 1882-1932
