I have EVERYTHING I need to be happy … what does that mean to you?
Are you happy with your job, your life, your health, your family? If you answered ‘No’ to any of these, then you may want to rethink your answer after you finish reading this.
What if you woke up this morning and like every other day, you dreaded getting ready to go to work. You dreaded the thought of seeing that boss or co-worker that you don’t especially care for. But you got ready anyway, and went in just as you always do. But today was different …
When you arrived, you found that you no longer have your job. You no longer have the security of that weekly paycheck. You no longer have to get up to go to work. You no longer have to see that co-worker or boss that you always dreaded seeing.
How would you feel?
Would you wish to have your job back?
Would you realize that your boss & co-worker were not so bad after all?
Would you appreciate that you had a job to get up and go to?
Would you appreciate that check that you were receiving every week?
You see, my point is … You have Everything You need to be Happy. You are where you are, experiencing what you are experiencing in your life in this very moment BECAUSE you are meant to be.
Can you change it, make it better, enjoy a more fulfilling and prosperous and peace-filled life? Of course!
The thing is, many people only realize they had what they needed to be happy, after they lose it. This may be a job, your health, children, a wife, your parents or even your house or car. After losing something that was important in our lives, something that we usually take for granted, we then tend to realize how happy we were to have that in our life.
Being happy and grateful for the things we have in our lives today, shouldn’t take losing them to realize how happy they made us.
When you first awaken in the morning and you take a deep breath in or yawn … that’s the perfect time to be happy. Happy that you are breathing and that your lungs are working. How about when you get out of your bed, are you happy that your legs, arms and hands are there to assist you?
What about when you grab your morning beverage? Have you ever stopped to realize that without electricity (or some other blessing in your life), that would not be possible?
We have EVERYTHING we need to be Happy right in this very moment.
Have you ever had a really bad cold or illness and wished that you were healthy again? Sometimes it takes losing what we had such as good health, for us to realize that we took being healthy for granted.
Some people are completely healthy, but are not happy. They could have an abundance of financial wealth and an enormous new house, but still be complaining that it’s too small, they need more room, or that it’s too far away from the store. But I bet if they were close to losing their home due to foreclosure or some other circumstance, they would be grateful and happy to be living there again and would think that it is in the perfect location and that it is the perfect size.
Should it take us losing something we love to realize that it had already made us happy just the way it was? What truly makes YOU happy? Do you already have EVERYTHING you need?
Look closely at your life as it may appear a little different now than it was at the beginning of this story.
To YOUR Success, In Peace:
