It’s part of the American Dream and it can be elusive. Does happiness stand just outside of your reach and disappear like a puff of steam? When you finally get that precious thing your heart has been longing for, do you feel disappointed and hollow?
I know lovely friend. I’ve been there.
What is happiness? Is it some grand event? Is it a perfect relationship? Is it a relationship goal? Is it an object? A person? A new car? A new home? I’ve searched fruitlessly, thinking that certain things would bring me some kind of fulfillment… but I was very wrong. I only ended up with failed expectations.
True happiness only comes from the Lord. In our journey with Him, we do have a choice to be happy. I’ve always noticed there are two types of people… those that complain and those that choose to be happy no matter what circumstance they are in. Have you ever noticed that some choose to chase happiness and some choose to be happy in the situation that they are in?
Will you choose happiness, my friend?
It’s the little things in finding happiness
Can you find something to be happy for in every single day in the year 2017? It doesn’t have to be big and it doesn’t have to be momentous. It can be the little things…
…the smile of your hubby…
…fresh laundry that smells good when pulled from the dryer…
…a sink full of dishes that reminds you that you have a house full of loved ones…
…holding your precious baby as she nestles in against you as she drifts off to sleep…
I’m changing the idea of what it means to be happy !
I don’t want to miss the little things that God is doing as a result of being constantly focused on the future!
Will you join me in 2017 by sharing what makes you happy on social media. I’ll be hashtagging #happinesschallenge2017 on my daily evening posts over on facebook (8:00 p.m.) and I hope you’ll be sharing your own daily inspiration of happiness on your own page!
My goal is to share 365 ‘in the now’ things that make me happy!
