People frequently ask me; Are you always happy? The subtext of the question sometimes has annoyance or disbelief in it, “like jeez, your life is so grand?!”
Actually while I’m sure there is an intrinsic part of me that is naturally happy. The truth is, I have worked and continue to work on feeling my feelings all the time, (and they are not all happy.) It’s like anything you want in your life. It could be working out to get muscles, learning karate or knitting. Being happy (as happy as I am ) takes work.
What does work mean to you? Does it mean a job? Work to me is: life’s work, working on my Self, what I do to be real, grounded and present as much as I can. My perspectives in life have now permanently changed, I have been trained, and now make choices to keep seeing the light in all situations, I am responsible for having created this shift /change. My judgmental and negative thoughts absolutely come up, except now I know what to do with them, and overall they just mean less.
I know that every human being is powerful and has the ability to go deeper into their authentic happy selves. Everyone has happiness buried deep inside. Do you have the patience and energy to uncover your greatness? Time will tell, and so will your actions. The world is waiting, your children and family members are waiting. When your ready to open up and train in your own happiness, you need no ones approval, just begin your journey. Why not right now?
