Some pursue happiness-others create it. Anonymous
Good morning! Pursuing happiness is a difficult battle. Happiness is fleeting if we chase it. When we learn what makes us happy, we can create our own happiness instead of relying on something external (or something out of our control).
Agnes Repplier said,”It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere. Do you know what makes you happy? Start a list in your journal or daily planner and record the moments that bring you happiness and pleasure. Once you have identified your “happiness stimuli” you can work to create more of such stimuli in your life.
Today’s Affirmation: Each day, I create happiness and joy.
Need some happiness help? According to the “Journal of Personality and Social Psychology,” published by the American Psychological Association (APA), at the top of the list of needs that appear to bring happiness are autonomy (feeling that your activities are self-chosen and self-endorsed), competence (feeling that you are effective in your activities), relatedness (feeling a sense of closeness with others), and self-esteem. At the bottom of the list are popularity, money, and luxury. Stop in at http://www.thingstobehappyabout.com/ to find a list of things to be happy about every day of the year.
