How to be happy EVERYDAY
It’s not easy to be happy every day, but it is possible. And it comes when we can have a healthy relationship with ACCEPTANCE.
Acceptance has a negative connotation, especially with my peers. Most people see acceptance as giving up, as settling, and that’s not at all what I’m suggesting here. I’m a big believer in chasing dreams and setting new, ambitious goals – I’m the last person who wants to settle for anything less than greatness. BUT we need to create a healthy balanced relationship with acceptance if we ever want to feel truly and sustainably happy.
Reality is known as the hard truth, it is unavoidable. If we are constantly fighting reality (i.e. wanting things to be better than they are now), then we are constantly in battle with something that won’t easily (or quickly at least) be changed. Therefore, we spend our lives fighting an unwinnable opponent only to reach the end of our lives feeling that sense of dissatisfaction.
My recommendation is to focus on enjoying the journey, while striving towards becoming the greatest version of yourself. It’s not about giving up on your dream, it’s about enjoying the journey, loving where you are now and knowing that you are exactly where you need to be in order to get to where you are destined to be.
Reality can be an enemy or a companion, the choice is yours. So go out and live with acceptance, patience and love.
