Do you deserve happiness? This is a question that most of us ask either on the conscious or subconscious level and the honest answer we give too often is, NO. This is a limiting belief that comes with us through our experiences that have taught us to expect less than the best. There is no reason to look at yourself and believe that you don’t deserve happiness. The only thing stopping you from living a happy life are your own negative stories that you tell yourself in your mind. You always have the choice to look at yourself with softer eyes and admit that you deserve to be happy.
All of us have a deep desire inside to know what is going to happen next. Where are we going? What is the next step? What should I do now?
Sometimes it seems like it would be much easier if our lives were scripted in a book that we could read before hand, like a play. Follow the script and you will eventually come to your happy ending and everything will be alright. A happy ending for all situations. That is just not the way that life works and I, for one, am grateful for it. Face the new experiences of life and bravely embrace the unknown. You really don’t have any other choice.
Happiness comes from within each of us and it is up to us to make the decision whether we are happy with your relationships, jobs or lives. There are many reasons that I believe this to be true but here are a few of my favorite locations of where happiness comes from.
So Often We Rely on Things
For much of my life, I was a person who thought that it took things to make me happy. A relationship, a house, a new car, or new clothes would make me feel like I was happy.
