Your happiness project
Notice how everyone wants to be happy, it’s not just a coincidence. At least I don’t think so.! We all yearn to be happy, in some ways life is a happiness project, full of paradoxes. Example: it may seem like it’s all about you but it’s actually what you an do for others. Bringing happiness to others increases your chances of being happy, while seeking happiness for yourself decreases the chances .! We all do things in our life that we know will bring us a measure of misery afterwords. Example include momentarily pleasure or an adrenaline rush. But they all pass quickly. Leaving the original yearn for happiness is stronger than before.
The thing is our deep yearning isn’t for momentarily pleasure, it’s for lasting happiness. Paul the apostle has it. He continually wrote about joy in his letters from prison. It was the most common theme in his writings from the filth and squalor from within his prison cell. Could you be haply in his situation.? I don’t think I could’ve, if I’m being honest I’d probably get and depressed pretty quickly. I am right by your side in this journey with you, and still have work to do myself. I am also in the middle of my own happiness project,just like yours it has its ups and downs. amount authors there is a saying that goes something like. “ we write books we need to read” . So maybe I am writing this message you and I need to hear the most.
You have no doubt discovered your own truths about happiness. But there is one question ; ask yourself . Is it possible to be happier than you have ever been.? Think about it, don’t just read on. Pause for a moment . Reflect. Do you believe it is possible to be happier than you have ever been.? I believe it is. Real happiness is a sign that’s the human spirit is thriving. This is the thriving I yearn for and the thriving I suspect you are hungry for. We want to live life more fully ; we’re impatient to live life to the fullest. So whenever you start your happiness project , even if it’s a complete train wreck, open yourself to the possibility and what the world has for you next. Stay open .
