People look their whole lives for happiness. But I believe it is inside us our whole lives. Silly, I know. But look how we strive to do things, be things and accomplish things never to find happy. Money isn’t it, love isn’t it, family isn’t it, our job isn’t it, what could it be?
Finding happy happens when we’ve lived long enough to look back and see how far we’ve come. When we can see how we’ve changed, how we’ve lived, who has come and gone purposely in our lives, what we thought was important and what is important now.
Striving to find happy takes up our whole being and life. If we strive to find happy, we miss out on a whole bunch of things where happiness would be found. Your purpose is attached to your happy. If you have found your purpose, you have found your happy. It is not materialistic. It is found deep in your soul where only God can fill it.
I hope one day you find your happy. I have found mine and I have lived half of a full life, some good parts and some not so good. But I found that finding happy is attached to my purpose. Being a Teacher, Author, Parent and Writer are all connected to the people God needs me to meet and connect with. And before I became all these things, I wasn’t truly happy. I had to become all of them to appreciate what it meant to find happy. All these things together make up me and who God created me to be and who He created me to help and to help me.
Stop searching and waiting for happy, let it find you. It will! Until then, live your life. Do things that bring you joy! Spend it with people who bring you joy! And one day without you even realizing it, happy will find you!
