Creating a sense of happiness is not a place or the people around you; instead, it is something that you hold within yourself. You can have absolutely nothing and be the happiest person on the earth, it is a candle of light within the core of your being and making the decision to honor that light will enable you to live your own life in the way that you need. This is the elusive answer that so many pursue, looking to the horizons to supply them with what they think happiness is.

Living your own life, on your own terms is exhilarating, and once you arrive you will never look back

It Takes Strength

We live in a society that encourages the belief that possessions and status as well as appearance is what brings happiness. Living in the right home, wearing appealing clothes, having everything that is part of the gauge that is supposed to make us happy. But a castle made of gold can be a gilded cage, and when you recognize that all of it is superficial and shallow, you can begin to tap into your own inner strength. It is self and spirit that you can empower for happiness, and the rest is all of that which is no longer important.

Smiling Becomes The Norm

Once you have identified all that has tried to keep you from being happy, you will touch upon the inspiration of the light. It will become the norm to understand and give thanks for your blessings and you will find that you smile more than you ever did before. Living your own life, on your own terms is exhilarating, and once you arrive you will never look back. It will be as if it was someone else that existed before.
