Tell me, what is happiness? In my words, happiness cannot be travelled to, owned or consumed. Trust me, it’s simply a spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude. True happiness is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give pleasure, possessions, power; but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy.
There is an amazing power getting to know your inner self and learning how to use it and not fight with the world. If you know what makes you happy, your personality, interests and capabilities, just use them, and everything else flows beautifully. The only thing that will make you happy is being happy with who you are, and not who people think you are. I believe the greatest secret of beauty is being happy with thyself. You don’t need to use special creams or treatments, believe me! It’s really a mistake to think you are what you put on yourself. But, a lot of how you look is to do with how you feel about yourself and your life. Happiness is the greatest beauty secret!!
The talent for being happy is appreciating and liking what you have, instead of what you don’t have. The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things. If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy, and inspires your hopes. Being cool is being your own self, not doing something that someone else is telling you to do. Loving oneself isn’t hard when you understand who and what ‘yourself’ is. It has nothing to do with the shape of your face, the size of your eyes, the length of your hair or the quality of your clothes. It’s so beyond all of those things and it’s what gives life to everything about you. Your own self is such a treasure.
It is important to trust yourself. You have to create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life and make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement. You can never be really happy if you keep holding to those bad memories which makes you sad.
Joy is prayer; joy is strength: joy is love; joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
And, of course, choose to focus your time, energy and conversation around people who inspire you, support you and help you to grow you into your happiest, strongest, wisest self. It’s important. Trust your own instincts, go inside, follow your heart. Right from the start. go ahead and stand up for what you believe in. As I’ve learned, that’s the path to happiness. Nobody really cares if you’re miserable, so you might as well be happy.
Let’s smile and be happy forever!!
