What Really Makes One Happy?
I find that I no longer think in terms of does something make me happy or make me anything. My emotions are the response of the rules I unconsciously apply to every situation or event in life. I live very much in the now. I feel happy. I feel love. I feel peace. Sometimes I feel emotions that are less than desirable in the moment. And everything is as it is.
I love what I do. That’s my choice, feeling love for the privilege of supporting others. I do my best every day and I accept my best as my best while continually learning, growing, and improving.
Emotions are like waves, washing in and out of my life. Sometimes they are signals to take action, sometimes they are like the sun casting crimson rays over the ocean as it settles in for the night, and always they are beautiful.
Every day is amazing, pristine in its wealth of possibilities, perfect in its imperfections. And truthfully, the only thing that make a perceived imperfection is my desire for something to be different. When I desire something to be different, I take actions, pay attention to feedback, and keep adjusting course—while still loving each day for the gift it is. Even perceived imperfections are gifts guiding me on my path of personal evolution.
As I accept each day as it is—while always doing my best to be my best, to learn, to evolve, to serve others—I experience the beauty of now.
What makes you happy?
