We have been offered a great chance lately. We had some time to slow down and smell the roses. To think about our lives and ask ourselves if we were happy. The current global situation doesn’t help us to feel fulfilled. We think that external things would give us happiness. But the truth is we can only find what we are looking for inside.
All religions and world philosophies tell us so. We need to go for a journey inside ourselves and find the treasure buried there. That is the only way to find our happiness. We cannot expect it from other people and make it dependent on them. It is not their role to make us happy but ours. And we can do that by learning to love ourselves and choosing to be happy. Only then we can have a mature relationships with others.
I do not own or watch the TV for over 16 years now. And from the beginning of this year I also stopped following the news. And I am choosing to live in my own positive reality. Whatever the external reality is, we need to just concentrate on our own lives. And start from there.
So ask yourself a question: are you happy? If the answer is no, then maybe it’s time to change something. To change the world we need to start with ourselves. As they say, every journey starts with the first step. So take this opportunity that the world is now giving us and start that journey. Become the best version of yourself. There is so much more that you can achieve.
Do you feel fulfilled in your life? Or are you worried about your financial situation, your relationship with others or yourself? Your relationship with yourself is the most important. You need to take care of that first. But then, when you are ready, you should reach out to other people. Because the only way for us to be happy is by helping others.
Are you following your passion? Do you even know what it is? Do you relate it to others, make it useful? That’s another way of looking at it. If you want to be happy, you need to follow your heart. Not your brain telling you to just take a job that pays your bills because that’s what is expected of you. When you do something you love, you are good at it and then money follows.
Why is it so important to be useful to others in order to be happy? Because we are all connected and their happiness is our happiness. We are all one and that is why we are not happy when we feel lonely and separated from other people. But when we share what we have with others, then our life is complete. We should not compete with each other, we should cooperate. That’s when we get the best results.
And this is our chance for a change.
