Have you ever spoken to someone and wondered why they are so happy? Did you wonder how you could make yourself happy everyday? Already we know the answer is not simply in getting more money. We know that money cannot buy happiness though we need it to take care of ourselves and our families. On the other hand if you decide to simply rely on your job and your official position to make you happy, what will you do when it is gone?
Everyday we all have to deal with different obstacles and challenges to our daily lives. Sometimes this will come from friends, at other times it will come from relatives or co-workers. It may even come from the attitude and behavior of our children. Whichever way the challenges may come from, we cannot let such challenges rob us of our happiness. We have to find happiness in the middle of the day. After all as members of the adoration family,we know that God wants us to be happy. He wants us to be happy both here on earth and in heaven.
What are the secrets to daily happiness? One of the main secrets to daily happiness is our ability to live fully in the moment with detachment. This means that if we want to find happiness in the middle of the day, we have to be able to try our best in the morning, but be prepared to let go of the morning to fully embrace the afternoon. Sometimes, when rushing off to work , one may run into such a bad traffic jam that , you end up getting to work so late that you miss an important appointment. If you remain mad at yourself, then you will be so angry that when God sends a healing angel or someone who will give you even greater blessings than the one you missed, you will end up missing the second opportunity. Has this ever happened to you? It has happened to me before. After the experience, I promised myself that with the help of God through whom, I can do all things, I shall live in the moment.
Though living in the moment is a very important part of finding happiness in the middle of the day, it is not the only factor. The other thing you need to learn to do is to start asking how you can change your situation for good , instead of asking why you are in a situation you do not want to be in. Unfortunately, most of us spend more than 60% of our time,complaining ton people and asking God “Why”, instead of trying to find out how we can be happy and successful. We need to spend more time finding finding out how we attain sustainable daily happiness and go out and take action.
