It’s always nice to share our individual happiness with others, but we can’t depend on another person… or anything outside of ourselves to make us happy; we have to do that on our own… with the help of GOD.
Naturally, most people think of “Happiness” as the good life, freedom from suffering, prosperity, well-being, joy and pleasure. However, in daily life we have to really understand that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but it’s being grateful… that makes us happy. Therefore, we should never confuse having less with being less, having more with being more, or what we have… with who we are. Life is so much more, so we should think “BIGGER.”
Even when we have the ability to accomplish certain goals; it’s still rather easy to doubt ourselves, because we fear trying, we fear venturing into the unknown, because we fear we might fail. But, let me tell you…don’t cheat yourself! There’s something GREATER… something really SPECIAL waiting for you, but only if you’re willing to take a chance to go after it. If you make the decision to embrace the ups and downs of life, and determine in your heart and mind to activate your FAITH in GOD… nothing in life is impossible.
Never worry about all of your dreams not coming true; remember, most of your fears and nightmares didn’t either. All you have to do is try – because if you don’t… there’s a 100% chance that you won’t succeed. Doing what you love is freedom. Loving what you do is happiness. Doing nothing… is SAD! And, in most cases you will end up with nothing.
Today, the choice is all yours. What will you do with that choice? Will you embrace your happiness… or spend your life looking at other people… wishing you had what they have?
Don’t do that! Instead, be happy with where you are in life… then, you can grow from that point – forward. Celebrate GOD… Celebrate Life… Celebrate the Good Things both GOD and LIFE have to offer. CELEBRATE YOU!
Don’t waste time wishing you had a better reality… take the time to create it. GOD has equipped you with everything you need to succeed. But, you must use the most important tool that you have available – FAITH – to make happiness and success a reality.
