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 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)
