After one of the craziest and most bizarre years of my life, today I was reminded of something that for me, got lost in the busy- hustle bustle part of life. When life feels like it's going a million miles an hour, it's really easy to let some of the things you do that make you undeniably happy, fall to the bottom of your priority list.
For the past couple of days, I've been trying to focus on what genuinely makes me happy. We all see happiness differently, but we all feel it the same way. Happiness isn't an elusive goal- a promise of something better once we get that job, bigger home, or find our soulmate. It isn't money, fame, or fortune- all of which I believe lead to short term gratification. Happiness is the things and people that fill your heart with so much joy, that when you're doing it or when you're with them, time stops.
I realize that happiness isn't really something that can be found, it's something that can only be felt. To me, that is magical. Happiness is about creating a life full of beautiful moments and memories that make you smile. Once you figure out what those things are, start implementing them into your daily routine. Making your happiness a priority is one of the greatest gifts you could ever give yourself and it's one of the only things that will make you feel complete.
Take a moment to define what happiness is to you. Happiness will always be a journey and not a destination but I think it's measured by the way we choose to live our lives, the relationships and people we share our life with, and finding bliss in the simple things.
We live in world with endless opportunity so enjoy the ride! Choose to live in the NOW rather than waiting for future happiness.
