Why We Cannot Buy Happiness?

“Happiness is a natural condition of being a person.”- Dr Wayne W. Dyer

Where can we find happiness? Can we make ourselves happy? Can we buy happiness?

Happiness does not depend on anything. It is free. It is natural. It does not cost you anything. Then why are some people not happy? Some people are not happy because they pay attention to things that will come and go. We think that pleasure will bring us happiness. We are dead wrong.

Most of us are not happy because we are looking at the wrong places for happiness. We ignore the ordinary things. We have fine homes, but we are not happy. We have money in the bank, but we are not happy. We have fine cars, but we are not happy. What is going on? What is happening to us? Where have we messed up? What are we doing wrong?

We think that happiness will come when we have enough material things. We are dead wrong! Happiness is not what we can buy from anywhere. The only place we can find happiness is in our minds. Our happiness does not come from the outside, but from the inside. If you really want to be happy, you must embrace your INNER SELF.

Happy thoughts attract happiness. When you think positively about yourself, your life, your family, your friends, your happiness level will go up. It will make your life better. You will perform better at work. You will attract other happy people into your life. But when you think negatively about yourself, your happiness level will decline. It will go down. It will not make your life better. It will worsen everything. It will zap your energy away.

You make yourself unhappy because of the thoughts that you have about the people or things in your life.”- Dr Wayne W. Dyer

In order to maintain your happiness level, focus on happy things, think happy thoughts, associate yourself with happy people, and don’t hang around negative people. Your happiness is in your own hands, so handle it well.

Where is your happiness?

Forgiveness Is About You, Not About Them

Forgiveness is freedom. When you forgive, you are free.”

Forgiveness is about you. It is not about them. When you forgive people who hurt you, you are not forgiving them, you are forgiving yourself. You forgive people who hurt you because you want to be free. You forgive people who hurt you because you want to heal your heart. You forgive people who hurt you because you want to live your life. Forgiveness is about freedom.

No matter what you have gone through, no matter what people have done to you, forgiveness is the way. Do not carry resentments with you. It hurts. It hurts you, not them.

Forgiveness is letting go of the past. It is a about the future, not the past. Stop hurting yourself. Stop tormenting your soul. Stop living in pain. Stop telling yourself, “I can’t forgive.” You can forgive, but you cannot forget. That is the reality of forgiveness.

Do not let resentment steal your happiness away. You are here to be happy. When someone hurts you, don’t focus on how to fight back. Focus your time and energy on how to move forward in your life. Planning to fight back will not bring anything good to you. Instead, it will increase your anger. To forgive is to move forward. Life is too short to waste. Don’t waste yours.

Forgiveness is freedom. So forgive to free yourself.
