“Don’t seek happiness. If you seek it, you won’t find it, because seeking is the antithesis of happiness”
Thank you @myhappyheals
- obsessed with this tank, as this literally describes (and reminds me) how I strive to live my life. Everyday is my “happy day”💪🏼
That doesn’t mean my life is perfect or easy (far from it). It mean I choose to take control over how I react to situations in my life. Joy is a decision and a mindset, and you have 100% control over your own happiness.
Stop wasting time chasing after happiness- when you search, you’ll never find it. Because whatever reason you find to be happy can just as easily be taken away from you, and you will always end up disappointed. If there’s anything I’ve learned from meditation and self development over the past 6 months its to be present and find joy in the seemingly unremarkable things 🍃✨
Wasting time worrying about the future simply detracts from the present, and changes nothing about the future. Worrying about the past does nothing to change it, and once again simply detracts from the present. Studies have found that people spend nearly half their time thinking about something other than what they are actually doing, which decreases happiness in the present moment🤔
How often are you actually present when you’re taking part in “menial” tasks such as cooking, walking your dogs, jogging, etc. We are so often spending all of our time looking forward to the next exciting event, wishing we could change something in the current moment, or reminiscing on the past; and this in turn blocks joy in the present moment.
Rather than focusing on how you want your present moment to be better, focus on what the present moment is already holding for you that you are grateful for🙌🏻
