Did you know that if you are feeling unhappy it is like continually feeling hungry? It’s as if there is a gnawing inside that can’t seem to go away. You feel as if life isn’t giving you what you need somehow. We try to find happiness and fulfillment from an outside source but what we are doing is creating a wall and cutting off the supply to the very thing that we want. Your happiness lies within you and isn’t up to someone else or some thing to provide it for you.
It can be tempting to think that outer experiences and people are responsible for our happiness. Maybe a car, or a certain someone, or even your children but know that any kind of true happiness comes from within you and how you look at the world. Sure maybe that beautiful new car will make you happy for a while and then…there is that gnawing once again and the search for true happiness. When we begin to see what is good in life and create happiness in everything we do, we begin to experience true happiness and one of the by products of true happiness? You guessed it…all those ‘things’ you thought would make you truly happy. Funny how it works that way.
