“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if you only remember to turn on the light.”- J. k. Rowling

Happiness is everywhere. Wherever you look, there is happiness. Wherever you go, there is happiness. The question is, “Are you searching for happiness?” Why? Why are you chasing what you cannot catch? Happiness is not what you search for; it is what you give. It is a way of life. It is not something out there; it is something in there. It is inside you. If you really want to be a happy person, don’t look too far to find happiness. It is inside you.

Instead of searching for happiness, focus on what is right in your life. When you focus on what is right in your life, you will find happiness, and you will be at peace with yourself. Don’t focus on what is not working for you. If you do, you are hurting yourself. You are not helping yourself. You are not here on earth to hurt yourself; you are here on earth to help yourself. For that reason, you must do whatever you can to make yourself happy. It is within your power to make yourself happy. Don’t wait for me. your spouse, your government, your boss, or your kids. No one can do it. No one can make you happy, but you.

Sometimes what you think is wrong with you is not really what is wrong with you. What is really wrong with you is the way you see yourself, the way you talk to yourself, or the way you think about your situation. Nothing is wrong with you. You have got to change how you treat yourself, your work, and your relationships.

You cannot live your life more than how you see yourself. If you want to change it, change how you carry yourself. Your progress depends on how you see yourself. You growth depends on how you treat yourself. Your happiness depends on how you treat yourself. Your relationships depends on how you treat yourself. Your work depends on how you treat yourself. Your relationships with other people depends on how you treat yourself. In fact, everything depends on how you treat yourself.

To find happiness, you must treat yourself with love and compassion. You are more than how you treat yourself. When you think positively about yourself, happiness will come to you. Don’t go out there searching for happiness; it is already inside you. Just connect with it. And you will find it.

“Happiness is not something you acquire.”- Anthony de Mello

Happiness does not depend on anything. It depends on you. It depends on your ability to control your thoughts- negative and positive. Happiness is not something you search for. Happiness is in you. Don’t search for it. It is there. You will find happiness if you can touch your inner self.

Let us find out how.

Choose happiness. You can’t control everything, but you can control your thoughts. If you can control your thoughts, if you can control what you think about, you can make yourself happy.

Appreciate your life. Happy people appreciate what they have. They let go of what they don’t have. They don’t worry about it. Appreciate your life- your work, your health, your relationships, your spouse, your kids. Enjoy them. Be grateful what you have, and more will come to you.

Always hang out with positive people. When you hang out with positive people, people who see only positive things, your happiness level will go up. People who see negative things, but they don’t let them control their feelings. If you can control your thoughts, you can control your feelings.

Help other people. Helping other people is not really about them, but about you. You get back what you send into the world. You get what you want by giving to other people what they want. When you help others, others will help you. It is that simple, but hard to do.

Accept yourself. You cannot find happiness if you think negatively about yourself. Self- acceptance is the first step to happiness. You are here on earth for a reason. You are unique. You are different. Focus on your uniqueness, not on your weirdness.

Stay away from blame game. When you blame others for your problems, you have weaken yourself. You have given your power away. You can’t control everything. But there are things that you can control. There are things that you cannot control. How you handle them will make all the difference. How you think about them will either make you happy or unhappy. Choose with care.

Enjoy being your true self. Enjoy yourself with what you have. Don’t pretend to be who you are not. Your inner life MUST match your external life. Make comfortable choices. Don’t do things that are against your values. Your happiness and your values are one and the same. They go hand in hand. They live in the same place. If you find one, you will find the other. Don’t go against your values. They are your life.

Enjoy the moment. Most of us are not happy because we can’t let go of yesterday’s mistakes. They are gone. But we never let them go. We still think about them. Stop! If you want to enjoy today, now, the moment, you must focus on today. Learn to live in the moment. Enjoy everything that is happening around you. Enjoy your life. Enjoy your work. Enjoy your friends. Enjoy your relationships with your spouse. Enjoy your environment. Nature is a blessing, so enjoy it.

Finally, your happiness is your own responsibility. Don’t let people make you unhappy. It is your responsibility to make yourself happy. So do it.

Happiness is within, not without.”
