Happiness... a state of mind

Monday, January 25, 2010

Yesterday's SparkPeople's Healthy Refelection: Understanding happiness

Happiness is a state of mind, not a way of life or a destination that you'll reach one day. Satisfaction can only come from within, through truly accepting yourself, your life, and your circumstances.

---

This is so true and yet can be so hard. It has taken me years to figure how true this concept really is. I have learned to focus on the things that make me happy about myself and my life, to be thankful for everything that I have, and to enjoy everything that life brings me. Only I can create true change and happiness in my life.

    i really like what you had to say....

    thanks for reminding me that i am responsible for my own emotions..whether that is happiness or sadness.... by my response to suffering, etc

    i like to practice mindfulness meditations...it has been too long since i have done that.. need to get back to it.......

    i feel like i have been whining a lot lately...but i am grateful to have a loving husband....three mostly healthy children.....a house ....a van that works (not well, but it works)

    hugs,
