What if you placed fewer conditions on your own happiness?
What if you didn't place destination markers on your own happiness? "I'll be happy when I get home" or "I'll be happy when I pay off my house" or "I'll be happy when I have a new car", etc...
What if you change the rules and make happiness a natural way of living?
Remember, nothing in life comes labeled, YOU are the labeler.
You can complain that roses have thorns or you can celebrate that thorns have roses. It's up to you!
Take some time to reflect on the power you possess to control your labels.
This universe is balanced. There is always something you can see as a positive in any situation.
Throughout history, some of the greatest messages have come out of the greatest messes.
Happiness is a gift just waiting to be unwrapped. It needs to be found. And finding happiness should not be seen as finding a needle in a haystack. Each day is a blessing that brings an abundance of happiness. Finding happiness should be like finding a gift in a stack of gifts.
Find your gift today. It's a new day!
