True Happiness: Find Happiness Wherever You Can

by: Amy Twain

To find the true meaning of happiness is by far every man’s ultimate goal in life. Of course, we all want to be happy—who doesn’t? They say that true happiness is such an elusive thing. Sometimes, you don’t really have to find it but it’s up to you to feel happy in even all the small things in life.

But then, it’s inevitable that there are still people who are not happy. For one, the key factor to the road of true happiness is when you decide that you would be happy. For some, the joy and welfare of other loved ones are of top priority than their own.

Yes, it can please very well the special persons in our life, but this is not entirely the real pathway to true happiness. Take note that I don’t mean that you must be selfish. However, in order for you to be truly happy, your own contentment should not take a back seat just to make other people glad.

After prioritizing your happiness, now you have to find out what really makes you happy. In order for you to do this, you can reminisce all those past events and memories which bring you back in time that makes you smile and glad. Rather than think about what made you sad and regretful, just focus on the positive and blissful moments.

Then, taking the next step, you could now connect that into an activity. Maybe you could engage in a physical activity that you love best—then you can rekindle that old passion for always wanting to try how to surf, wakeboarding, or whatever you want. Or how about something artistic? Then try some art workshops out there, join a writing class, a foreign language crash course, or anything you like—the choice is yours.

Look for ways in order to connect and relate the activity and whatever that makes you joyful. This is an essential factor in finding your true happiness. Okay, for some, this is not enough to make them happy. Most of us still want those special persons to be a part of our lives.

Well, now is the time to reconnect with some of our long-lost friends or relatives we haven’t kept in touch with. Or just a little time for bonding with family—a grand family reunion can be set; you can organize and arrange it and spend the moment as if you’ve never been apart by time and distance.

True happiness is also synonymous to sharing a part of ourselves to other too. By being there for others—may it be consoling them or giving tips and advice, can be a big help. Or try volunteering for a cause to show your compassion and kindness to a higher level. Be it in big or small ways—it doesn’t matter as long as you’re sincere in your intentions for helping others, then true happiness can be attained.

See, it’s not that difficult to find true happiness. You can also make your own listing of even all the small things which make you laugh or smile. A good book, a hilarious movie or a hearty meal in a fave restaurant. It can be anything—find happiness wherever you can get it.
