“Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so that they will be happier. The way it actually works is reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you really need to do, in order to have what you want” -Margaret Young
Now, I know we all want to improve the quality of our lives and do the things we truly love to do and have a passion for. So often, we tend to look outward for happiness instead of inwards – we are doing it all backwards. I truly believe that we, as a society, are starting to become much more aware of how much control we actually do have over our happiness. We are beginning to see the profound effects practices such as self love, compassion and gratitude have on our lives and overall happiness.
That is why I wanted to start this one stop resource website that has all the tools and links that have personally helped me in my life’s journey toward happiness, self confidence and inner peace. Now granted, we are not going to be happy and joyful 100% of the time, but my hope is that the tools on this website will open up your awareness even more and act as a form of cyber-support. The tools on this site are here to help to center yourself, provide clarity and insight when the going gets tough and tough emotions seem to come to the surface.
I encourage readers to comment, share their stories and be open and honest about WHATEVER you are going through at the time. All of your voices are genuinely appreciated and will help all of us in our journey towards self betterment and happiness.
Remember: Happiness is a CHOICE. It is all a matter of perspective. As Dale Carnegie perfectly stated:
“Happiness does not depend on any external condition, it is governed by our own mental attitude”
