Happiness is a practice

“Happiness is a journey, not a destination.”

-by Ben Sweetland

A person cannot remain happy all the time overnight. It is a practice that needs time and patience. You need to create your own happiness. It cannot be a place to find or a thing to get attached to because these things and places won’t remain with you forever, but you would be by your side till you are alive.

 

Find happiness in small things

For practicing happiness, you don’t require some big events or moments to happen. All you need is some time and a grateful heart. Admire the small things that are with you, admire the beauty you are surrounded by and stop waiting for that something special. One cannot just keep waiting for something special and unique to happen to be happy, one needs to be happy every day by enjoying each and every moment.

 

Let’s keep it simple

Don't tend to complicate things up and create more problems for yourself. Every day, there is going to be an issue or a complex situation, don't indulge yourself in too much of thinking that you forget to be happy. Remember to happy. If necessary, put a note on your desk board that smiles. A smile can change your perspective and the way you would talk to others and how others you see you. Don't be afraid of whatever comes in your life as everything has a solution and there is no need to worry about it and stop being happy.

 

Let us put some rules!

For making happiness as a practice, you need to practice that. Prioritize that instead of any other work. Remember that whatever task you are doing, do it with a smile on your face and if anything, you feel like not doing, just don’t do it. It is not necessary to abide by the rules laid by the society. There are always your rules for happiness and comfort. Make it a habit to stay happy, always. The light of happiness may not be always shining on you but that does not mean that it is not there for you. The sun always comes out after a rainy day.

With some of these suggestions, all you need to do is practice happiness for your inner peace and stability. That is the actual key to your success as the ultimate goal is to be happy and satisfied.
