Have you ever wondered what makes you happy? We are bombarded with quotes and saying about going for what makes us happy. But we are never told to wonder about what makes us happy. Is it just assumed that we would all know what makes us happy?
Unfortunately, I think a lot of people are unhappy because they don’t know what makes them happy. They never learned to dig deep and really find out what makes them happy. And so, they don’t know what to go for!
Fortunately, this can easily be done by simply reflecting inward. By asking yourself- what makes you happy? Maybe write it down. Maybe say it out loud. But definitely be unapologetic about it. Our happiness is not contingent on other people. It is all about what makes us feel good inside.
We get lost in the expectations of society and of others that we lose our sense of self. What makes us happy is the essence of our self. So really ask yourself. What makes you happy? Is it having a family or reading a good book? It is having a partner that you can rely on? Is it having a career or not having a career? Is it traveling or staying home? Is it a little bit of everything? Only you know what makes you happy.
So, what does make you happy?
