I know of many people who spend their lives searching for happiness. And, in the end, some of them are fortunate enough to realize that it is not about having more or doing more or being more but about how they view what is already theirs ……………………….
Today, we are so different as compared with the past. Most of us will either have a computer, a smartphone or an iPad. But, even with the availability of increased connectivity and so forth, it does not necessarily enhance meaningful human to human interactions.
On the other hand, we tend to put a lot of stock in our memories. Our memories do play a role in determining if we will one day soar like an eagle up in the sky or worse live with our hurts for the rest of our lives – I agree sometimes we do not get a choice. Life just hand us stuff we did not choose or want and wish we could return if possible.
By the way, “Is there a choice in your life that you know is the healthy way to go?” And, if you look around you, “Can you appreciate some of the riches God has placed in your life?” You see, it is only when we begin to see and appreciate these riches, we will certainly find that we have a great deal more to be happy than we can probably imagined.
All of us have our important priorities and we know very well what matters most to us. It is time to take a good look at the life you have created for yourself and decide what is working and what is not. It is time that you should also stop complaining. And it is time that you stop blaming external factors or your circumstances for causing your unhappiness as well.
Remember, to appreciate what you already have and you will find that you have a great deal more to be happy about. Look at life in the light of God’s love. Look up to God for what He has done. And we will find His love in every turn. !!!
