SIX TIPS TO HAPPINESS

happyexitIt is the second week of January, 2015.  Are you any happier than you were last year? Here are suggestions for any scenario:

  1. Are you recently single for any variety of reasons?  Then celebrate the new opportunity that lies ahead for you and take the high road.
  2. Are you recently in a relationship for any variety of reasons?  Then celebrate the new opportunity that lies ahead for you and take the high road.
  3. Are you entering a new phase of employment/unemployment for any variety of reasons?  Then celebrate the new opportunity that lies ahead for you and take the high road.
  4. Are you still in a career or relationship that is no longer as exciting for you as it once was?  Then celebrate what is good about it but also consider how you can make things better.
  5. Are you alone? Then celebrate what you like about being alone, but take the high road with yourself and consider the opportunities that abound to change whatever scenario you are presently in.
  6. Are you in poor health?  Again, focus on what can be done, and be grateful for the blessings that you have.

If you are chagrinned because my tips are generalizing, trite, or simplified, read them again. You have a choice in each situation you face in life: acknowledge or resist. The definition of “resist” means to “fight or struggle” which means to waste your energy and spirit. To “acknowledge” means to “recognize or admit” which is the beginning of change. Ignorance is not bliss; it is ignorance. Forgiveness is divine. And Grace is the ability to move forward with no baggage and devote your time to the pursuit of happiness. Although each scenario may be complicated, the answer is relatively simple if you truly desire to be happy.
