Being happy because… – daily inspiration
Being happy because… so often we continue by telling what circumstance makes us happy. Because someone surprised us, because we got a new job, because we are on a holiday. Just because…
I personally think we have that wrong. It is not the circumstance that makes us happy, but that which we are doing… When someone surprises us, we smile or feel appreciation. That is a good feeling – and we call that happiness. When we have a new job, it is not the job that makes us happy, it is the feeling that we can create and express ourselves in a way that we like. If we are on a holiday, it is not the holiday that makes us happy, it the act of relaxation.
Next time you are being happy because… think about it and feel where it comes from. Happiness, after all, to me is an inside job. How do you feel about that perspective?
