The Not SO Secret Recipe for Happiness

The deeper I go into this journey of life, the more I refine the recipe for happiness.  It is so easy and there is nothing secret about it.  And since I like you so much, my dear reader, I am going to share it with you.

For a lot of us happiness is a destination.  We think we will one day arrive to this amazing place in our lives and it will be there.  Or we think that day will never arrive.

We tell ourselves “if then” statements.  “If I was rich, then I would be happy.”  “If I found the love of my life, then I would really be happy.”  Happiness is not a place.  Happiness is whatever you want it to be, whenever you want it to be.

So this is what I want you to do right now, I want you to think of things that really make you feel alive.  What makes you thrive?  What can you do over and over again without even thinking of time?  What healthy activities just make your heart melt?

Really think about this.  Get honest with yourself while you sit in a dark and quite room and brainstorm these amazing ideas.  Then, once you have a wonderful array of amazingness, you take the most important step.

The most important step is to promise the Universe you will be an active participant in the formation of your awesome life by engaging in these activities as often as necessary for the rest of your life.  You will vow to begin this process by weaving these things into your current lifestyle.  You will pledge to live the life you were meant to live and not stop until your mission is accomplished.

Why would you make such a binding contract with the Universe, you may ask.  The answer is simple.  The Universe wants you to be happy.  The Universe wants you to thrive.  The only reason you may not be where you want to be is because you have not allowed yourself to be.  By making this contract, you hold yourself accountable.  You place the responsibility on yourself instead leaving your happiness up to chance.

Not only do you make yourself accountable, but you empower yourself to take control over your life. Little by little you will notice that the pieces of happiness you are adding to your life are creating monumental changes in your life. You will soon experience a magical amazing life by simply pledging a life of happiness.

So tell me, how will you take action to a life of happiness today? Or if you are already practicing this, how do you implement happy moments in your life? I would love to hear what your comments.

    You’re so right Sol, we stipulate our own contract of happiness. If you’re not happy, just change the conditions of it. And the amazing thing about this is that we can re-write the contract AS OFTEN AS we want!

      I am so glad that you mentioned this. We can keep editing this contract to suit our needs and continue to bring more happiness in our lives. “My happiness depends on me!”
