Life is what happens as we are planning our future. Many of us make the mistake of believing that all of our expectations will happen down the road, as we prepare for what we expect our life to be. We believe that once we get there, everything will be perfect and we will finally be happy. We forget that there is much to be gained if we enjoy our journey as we are living our life. We should revel in every moment that we’re moving toward that higher goal. We need to enjoy the accomplishments we gain while we achieve our goals. We should make it a worthwhile journey, and in doing this, we will savor the end result that much more.
The most important thing we need to understand about Happiness is that it is a choice we make from moment to moment. We should try to not let the little things bother us because this will block the happiness we would otherwise feel. Embrace happiness, smile, and enjoy the moment. As The Undercover Divas, we enjoy happiness when we discover and experience new things and then share those experiences with others through our blog. It is a hobby that makes us happy. Try finding something that you love doing, and enjoy that time while you experience doing it. And don’t forget to always be kind to one another.
Author Carol Holmes said, “A happy life is made up of little things: a gift sent, a letter written, a call made, a recommendation given, transportation provided, a cake made, a book lent, a check sent.” Success and happiness is not in getting rich or rising high to fame. Happiness comes when we are big of heart, and clean and broad in mind. It is being faithful to your friends, and to the stranger, be kind. Learn to enjoy the little things, there are so many of them.
A hidden part of us rejoices when we reach out to one another in everyday life. We search for happiness in romance, achievements, possessions, exciting experiences, and all of these bring us some satisfaction, but not enough to bring us real joy. When we help others, we receive happiness back, tenfold. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.
