The Source Of Happiness

The Source Of Happiness

The Source Of Happiness

One day in my late teens, as I was healing from my past and transitioning from teenage into adulthood, I had questions I wanted to ask, though I was too scared to ask anyone.

I was scared because I didn’t want anyone to laugh at me and also I thought I was “isolated” and maybe I was the “only one” with such “silly” questions.

The questions I wanted to ask people were:

What is it like being an adult?

Does like get any easier?

Do your dreams come true as you get older?

What do you do to keep going?

What is the source of happiness?

Though, I never asked them…

Then, one day, I got over myself and I filled myself with as much courage as I could and I headed to my computer…

Who would have thought that the Internet would have the answers to the questions I had.

So, I keyed in the following question:

What is the source of happiness?

To my amazement there were thousands, if not millions of websites with the answer to this question.

Wow, I thought, I am not alone, others have the same question too!

I read so many interpretations, from so many people and so many advices, etc., etc.

Needless to say I ended up feeling even more confused at the end of my search.

Although, I must admit I felt slightly better because I knew I wasn’t alone, I discovered other people had similar “issues” and questions to mine.

What is the source of happiness anyway?

I didn’t find the answer to that question per se, what I did find out was that we all feel there is something missing.

We all think that when we get the six-pack life will be better, we think that when we get the ideal partner life will be nicer, that when we get the job life will improve dramatically…

We think, think, think…

The truth is no outside resource will change anything in our lives if we don’t change our inner game, the way we see ourselves, the way we see others and the way we see life.

The source of happiness is within us, deep down, where so many people are “afraid” of looking in…

Why are people scared of looking in?

Because they do not or cannot love and accept themselves…

Crazy, isn’t it?

People, us in general feel unworthy of our own love; though, we “think” we are worthy of other people’s love.

If you don’t love and accept yourself, you cannot acknowledge or welcome someone else’s love, because you don’t know what it is like or what it feels like.

If you don’t love and accept yourself, you will never be happy…

I learned that to be happy, to find the source of happiness you/we must nurture what is right in front of us, ourselves!

We love and accept ourselves and we realise that we are happiness, that when we are present in our lives, we will notice that we have always had everything it took to be happy; though, we were too “busy” looking elsewhere, neglecting and ignoring the most obvious of places, inside of us.

Happiness has never left us, it’s always been there, and guess what? It is still there, you just need to reach in, look in and you will find it.

There isn’t any “magic pill” or secret to find the real source of happiness, all it takes is patience, love and acceptance, then everything will fall into place.

I promise, everything will fall into place when you heal your relationship with yourself.

  1. Happiness is so complex – variable, unpredictable …

  2. Happiness is hard to hold onto. Paul Simon, in his beautiful song of self discovery, America, wrote “‘Kathy I’m lost,’ I said, though I knew she was sleeping. ‘I’m empty and aching and I don’t know why.'” Somehow, the most powerful emotion often seems to be sadness.

    1. Brené Brown’s book Daring Greatly talks about just that vulnerability, that being vulnerable takes courage. So acknowledging that one is sad is a breakthrough and a way to work towards other more positive emotions.
