Don’t Put Your Happy on Hold

don't put off your happyIt’s so easy, in the busyness of day to day living, to set aside or ignore those things that make us happy.

And that is so wrong.

We need to make time every single day to focus on at least one thing that brings us unmeasured joy and happiness.

All to often, we get in the mindset of thinking we’ll allow ourselves to be happy after we reach some goal.

Have you ever heard someone say,” When I do X,” then I’ll be happy?

Be happy now!

Stop waiting for that perfect career, perfect spouse, perfect income, perfect house, perfect whatever.

Life isn’t perfect. Life is full of lots of ups and downs and in between. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be happy right now. Today.

Make it a choice – no, make it a priority to fill your life with happiness right now. Regardless of all the external factors in your world, you can choose to be happy no matter what.

Don’t put off your happiness another day.

Smile.

Give yourself a positive pep talk.

Think about something that brings you great joy or makes you feel content.

Breathe deeply.

See, don’t you feel better already?
