Are you happy? Do you know that whether or not they realize it there are multitudes of individuals who search for and eventually find the means of developing true happiness? For others it seems that they never get to where they are going along their path towards reaching true happiness. Many may wonder around in their lifetime while occupying themselves with a false sense of happiness or even short term occurrences of happiness. Some may even give up in apathy and live an empty and unfulfilling life.
Why do you think it is so difficult for so many to develop their true happiness? In reality we need look no further than our own mind, heart and spirit to find that happiness grows and blossoms within. If this is so, how can that be? The answer here lay within and without the over blown emulation of the media such as trying to be like celebrities photos that most often are touched up, it is a picture only a masquerade really. On the other hand it could also be from our perspective of watching others who do appear to be happy at some time or another and making assumptions.
Happiness is never developing by following such paths to reach it, since true happiness comes from the discovery of who you are and what holds meaning in your life. When people are not happy something is amiss in their life or they are doing something that they really do not want to have to do or they are put into undesirable positions because of the choices and influences of others.
In order to develop true happiness you must identify those things which bring you the most pleasure and those things that you are most passionate about. What are your true passions? Think about it, muse over it a while, make a list and then go out there and do those things.
Developing true happiness goes hand in hand with finding your life purpose. Take the time to sit down and make a list and plan out how you can achieve happiness since it is always best to have goals in mind and a plan of action. There are various resources and techniques available to you to aid you in your progression of developing your own true happiness and creating the life you deserve.
Commit yourself to it now. Keep a positive attitude, practice your affirmations and remember to smile. Be thankful for those things that you do have. Express the happiness you do experience. Live in the present. Deal with any old emotional baggage. Do what you need to in order to bring simplicity into your life, and then work to make your dreams and goals successful.
Once you identify that which is enthusiastically attractive to you, you can begin developing true happiness and creating a better sense of being while living your life in a more resourceful and productive way. You can easily incorporate these meaningful things into your life a little at a time by spending about an hour weekly doing the thing that means the most to you. In this manner you will gradually develop you very own sense of true happiness.
