Wednesday Wisdom

Seed tomorrow with wise happiness today!

Perhaps one key to true happiness is learning to discover it in every moment, not waiting for it to arrive with the achievement of some future goal. Happiness that comes from achieving goals is fleeting at best and sets us up in a never ending cycle of chasing the next “one.”

That doesn’t diminish the power of setting and achieving goals, rather reframes our dependence on being consumed by accomplishments as our source of happiness.

Happiness is not a goal, it’s a by-product.  ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Life is calling . . .  Today’s the day!

Seed tomorrow with wise happiness today!

As I read more about the science of happiness, commonalities are present among the studies identifying keys to whole heartedness and success:

  • Live (or work) in the moment; avoid thinking about things you have to do later
  • Of course life will hand us challenges – Remain resilient
  • Develop mental discipline; be mindful of your thoughts and manage them well
  • Be a compassionate observer of yourself, knowing when to adjust
  • Manage your energy
  • No nothing . . . absolutely nothing for at least a few minutes every day
  • Treat yourself well; be kind to yourself as well as to others
  • Venture outside your comfort zone
  • Work at being compassionate and show it outwardly
  • Stay in awe and in wonder of life

Of course, the above list is not complete.  Your homework: Edit and add to the list for yourself.

Seed tomorrow with wise, intentional happiness today!

Only recently have studies of human behavior included research to understand mental health and well-being in lieu of an exclusive focus on deviant behavior. The results give us the luxury to access and implement strategies to live a healthier, more satisfying and meaningful life. 

Happiness seems to be a secret sauce that can help us be and do our best. Researchers who study happy people have found them to be more successful, with a realization that happiness is a choice, and believe it’s up to them to intentionally choose it every single day. They’re not held hostage by their circumstances and do not seek happiness in other people or in possessions.

Intention is the active desire and commitment to be happy.

Shall we choose happiness today?!
