pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.“
role-play, a technique I like to use once in a while. Let’s say
that tonight for dinner you want to have homemade soup. You have a
craving. Your family has a craving. Everyone wants soup.
Unfortunately, you don’t have a single ingredient needed to make
the soup. What would you do? (I will make a guess that you will go
get the ingredients.) Obviously, if you don’t go get them, you’ll
never fulfill that homemade soup-craving.
for it to come our way, just as the ingredients for a recipe won’t
magically appear. We have to make a conscious effort to go out and
and we fulfill that want. We are thirsty – we go get something to
drink. We are hungry – we go get something to eat. We want to write
something down – we go get a pen. Happiness need not be any more
complicated – if we want happiness, we must go get it or create it
where we are.
Challenge yourself to create or catch happiness today.
I create happiness in my life.
And as always, don’t forget to start your day with a heartfelt:
“Something great is going to happen today… I can’t wait to see what it is!”
