Here’s the truth:
No one teaches us how to be happy. And those who try to, often give us the wrong information.
And so we chase happiness, telling ourselves it’s just around the corner, that we will earn the right to be happy tomorrow, next week, next year.
This model of happiness is faulty. It’s broken.
It sees us striving for happiness, chasing a moment in the future that’s out of our reach and control.
All the chasing makes us stressed, distracted and uneasy.
It’s time to stop chasing happiness.
It’s time to grow the type of happiness that doesn’t rely on an imagined moment in the future.
The type of happiness that’s available to you right here, right now, regardless of what your life looks like on the outside.
Now is the time to…...
Let's be clear
Happiness isn’t about always smiling, getting what you want and life turning out exactly as you planned.
Happiness involves growing a lasting sense of peace, purpose and belonging that allows you to feel engaged with the things and people that matter, and more resilient in times of challenge and change.
It’s more like smiling on the inside. The best part, this happiness is unwavering, it's on your terms, and it actually lasts.
In these uncertain times, we all need to be growing this type of happiness, for the well-being of our families, communities and the wider world.
