I am not sure anybody really knows what makes some people "happy" while others seem to be always searching for "happiness" ... one thing for sure though is that money or "things" do not bring happiness or a belief that when i get to this place of "something" i will be happy.
I believe that happiness is a conscious choice combined with self esteem as well as purpose and passion in life - it is truly accepting where we are (standing in our truth) and saying ok here is where i am - it is looking at yourself honestly and facing your "issues" - note: this takes a lot of courage and can be painful
Happiness it is not comparing yourself to others or judging others - it is saying thank you universe for bringing me to this point in my life and being grateful for the gift of life - it is being humble for all thinsg and also forgiving yourself for things in the past - it is trusting the process, letting go of worry, and having faith that things will work out and even get better (if they are not) in the future - - happiness is helping others and serving others - having empathy as well as compassion - it is knowing that we are so loved and taken care of always by a higher force - it is truly embracing each and every moment and cherishing the journey. happiness is in each of us if we choose to be happy. the universe knows.
