It's early morning and I'm still in bed (yeah literally as I write this).
The sun is shining through the window, the sheets are still warm, my kids have come into bed for a Sunday morning hug, my husband brought me a cup of tea, I read some of my book, I've been thinking about all the things I really want to happen in my life and why.
When I do this, there's really only one outcome I want to happen, and it's the only outcome we all want in life - To Be Happy, we all just take different paths to getting there in the moment. For some, it's finding the perfect mate, for others, it's having an abundance of cash, or a successful business - what is it for you, right now?
How do you wake up in the morning? Is it appreciating the warm sheets, the hot tea, a good book, and those 5 minutes of peace before the day begins, or is your first thought - 'What do I have to do today?' or 'I'll check my phone to see if any emergencies happened' or 'I'm going to be late for work' or 'God, I have to do / face / go [fill in the blank] today.'
We all want to be happy, yet for some reason, in the smallest and most simple things in life, we don't 'allow' ourselves to see or feel those moments of happiness, that are generally free and right under our nose, because instead we allow what we're unhappy with to consume us.
If you want more happiness in life, to begin with, you simply need to allow yourself to observe the beauty of the moment, and permit yourself to do that without the thoughts of everything else you think you should be doing getting in the way of that moment, or pulling your attention to the things going wrong in your life, that you feel are so important you have to immediately fix them before you can be happy.
You and I could be friends, or we may never have met, you could even be getting acquainted with me for the first time, but that doesn't change the fact I wish for your happiness...
