True happiness is not found in material wealth. It is found in a deep core feeling of gratitude and pleasure in life moments. Many of us find it in unexpected moments this can be early in the morning or late at night right before we head to sleep.
This moment that is peaceful is one that is very unique and special to everyone. Pure happiness cannot always be found in material gains as it eventually fades away and get old but a special moment in the sunrise or sunset is special and always there for us.
I have found over the years that gaining more and more in life is never fulfillment but these are always moments I am at pure peace and I am happy truly happy at that moment. A lot of times this can be found in a simple walk in the park alone, nature or absorbing your alone time or special moments can bring a sense of joy and peace. True sanitary that is special for each of us.
Many find this in later years in life but I am really grateful to learn earlier than later. I know I find happiness when I can smile within and I know I radiate a joy to others so I can help others along the way. We have to be able to distinguish in life necessary pleasure and unnecessary pleasures that can be addictive and disruptive to our well being.
We have to know when we are becoming obsessive over items and know when to simple let go. This can become a beautiful moment for us that will can be a moment of hapiness. Remember a time you was obsessed over a item or idea and the moment it is no longer around or fulfilled you are no longer obsessing over it.
Practice slowly letting go of things and ideas and your life will have a different approach. One thing I have learned to keep my happiness and peace is when something happens that may upset me. I stop and take a deep breath and ask myself why am I really upset and look at the underlining answer of me.
Then I realize I had my own selfish desire at that moment. Like for instance if I am driving and someone gives me a bad drive automatically I will get a little turn off because we want everyone to drive like us. When we remove that expectation we would not be so upset and not obsess over it for the entire day.
The same goes in work, family members, neighbors, peers and random strangers. We should drop the expectations and leave it to be, it will save us a peace of mind and our happiness.
Happiness is always found in moments and it is in those small moments we find peace love and joy. I always find it in walking,jogging or spending time alone, it is a peace and stillness that no one can take away. Hope you find this as well in your own little ways in life moments.
Love and light.
