Why do some people seem so Happy: yet I seem to feel so Sad:

I know a few years ago I had problems finding that core essence to Happiness, yes I had been through a lot, but I had overcome so much yet I still was amiss of Happiness.

I first made a decision that I was going to be Happy and this is what I went about doing;

Then I sat down to look at what I had in my Life and much to my surprise I really had it all, I was accomplished in my career that I loved dearly and had incorporated a great lifestyle for both myself and my family. I had worked to achieve a wonderful relationship with my husband and sons along with their extended families.

I still had lessons to learn with my finances, but I was by no means in difficulties in this area, just needed to work on building financial security for my future

I always had a sense that everything was meant for a reason, but I needed to implant a firm belief in this.

I also had to come to realize that I could not control other people, I have a role in having an influence in their lives by my behaviours and the way in which I went about living my life. But the actual control of their life is in their hands.

If I wanted people to enjoy me and where I was, I needed to enjoy them and where they were in their lives.

Everyday is a new beginning for us to let go of the things we don't want as part of our lives and to incorporate the things that we do want. This undoubtly includes people as well.

Without knowing I had achieved Happiness, I just needed to stop, look around to realize that it was there.

Without Pain: We can't appreciate Joy
Without Loss: We can't appreciate Gain
Without Commitment to ourselves and our Life we will Never achieve Balance

Nothing is Negative when we can see what we have gained from it

By learning to put myself first, I was able to transform my relationships and my business. Everything seems to fall into place a lot easier.

I would like to share with you some of the valuable lessons that I have learnt along the way.

I would like to see you put these into place for the next 2 weeks.

1. Everything you're going through is preparing you for what you asked for.

We may not see the big picture when we're in it, but happy people know that sometimes the most difficult things are actually setting them up for success.

2. Everything connects eventually.

When you're in it, you can't see. But your journey is preparing you for a stronger tomorrow.

3. Setbacks don't define you. They nudge you into new awareness.

Instead of looking at what isn't working, focus on what is.

4. You can't run away from your past.

Focus on forgiveness to free yourself. Happy people let things go and don't stress the small things.

5. Nothing will ever go away until you learn what you need to learn.

Are you running away or to something? Happy and healthy people will look deep within themselves to address their role in each situation so they can move forward and not repeat harmful patterns and situations.

6. You don't always get what you want, but you will always get what you need.

Don't get hung up on when and how your goal will manifest. Instead, focus on the journey and what you are learning along the way.

7. You are always being guided.

Happy people trust that things aren't actually as bad as they seem and but they know they have an infinite amount of support around you. the difference, they ask for help and support.

8. Out of difficulties grow new beginnings.

The setbacks you face are actually preparing you for a stronger foundation and a healthy, new start.

9. Always trust the process.

The journey is the reward, not the destination. Happy people are in the journey and enjoy the process as much as, if not more than the outcome.

10. You have something the world needs.

You have Everything you need & You are Enough
