The Sweetness of Life (part of a series on reclaiming happiness)

           

In today’s hustle and bustle society, where days are a series of must do’s and you are driven by the desire to achieve and be everything.  It is easy to get lost and forget about the sweetness of life. 

When you are stressing over the things you have to accomplish, you forget to savor the moment, the right here right now.  Losing the moment and being sucked into the current of future and past thinking.  Everything that has to get done and everything you have done wrong, missed, regret. 

Do you want to be happier?   Do you find you fill your life with superficial ideals you believe will increase your happiness?

First, happiness is an ebb and flow.  You can’t be happy 100% of the time.  You can learn to honor the feelings that come in and leave.  You can learn to be in the here and now.  You can learn acceptance of what is happening right here, right now.

Second, to be happier you have to change your perception.  Changing your perception can be difficult.  Your perception becomes skewed and cloudy overtime from life experiences.  Sometimes these life experiences can cause you to feel worse about yourself and life. 

It’s time to take back your happiness!  You may not be able to change your circumstances but you can be happier!

Let’s start easy before we jump into the big stuff.  Your challenge is to seek out and find the beauty in every day.  Find what makes you smile and embrace it.  To start you can check out this handy play sheet
