Perhaps the most valued emotion in our society is “happy.” How many times have you said or heard someone say, “I just want to be happy,” “You make me so happy,” “I want to find someone who makes me happy,” or “My kids make me so happy.”
Guess what, my friend? Happiness doesn’t come from ANYTHING outside of you. Not your kids, not your spouse, not your job. And that’s the best news ever. Because that means you can be happy right now. You don’t have to wait for the perfect spouse or the dream job.
Never put the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket.
Every single emotion comes from our thoughts. What are you thinking that is stealing away your own happiness? Take your power back.
