Many of believe that happiness comes from things outside of ourselves. We become caught up in the rat race mentality that we need to “keep up with the Jones”.
We buy into the mindset that it is “STUFF” that makes us happy and completes us. This could not be further from the truth.
Then when we find that the “stuff” doesn’t bring us the happiness we thought that it would be we shift focus and blame the world.
Happiness ALWAYS come from within, ALWAYS! It is through peace off mind that happiness comes. If we are at peace on the inside, everything in life is, well just so much better! Focus on peace inside and everything else falls into place.
Don’t blame the world or others for experiences in your life because YOU are the only one that can bring you happiness into your life because you are the filter to your happiness. Basically, your mindset will determine your happiness.
The next time you find that you are looking for “happiness” outside of yourself, take a back step and shift your focus to your inner peace, once you do, then EVERYTHING will fall into place!
