TSF SPEAKS || HAPPINESS, WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU?


Happiness is something everyone wants. There are many ways of describing happiness. Aristotle said “Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence. Denis Waitely said Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude. I would say ‘Happiness is a decision’ it is your decision to make.
What makes you happy? Having loyal friends, family, money, getting that IPhone you’ve always wanted, doing what you are passionate about, being in the presence of God, giving a helping hand, going to work every morning, donating to the less privilege, listening to music? Are you always happy when things get better with you or around you? Will you then be happy when you get what you’ve always wanted?
But what if you never get them, what happens next? Do you know many people in the world have what we think we need but still aren’t happy? while there are few people who have less of the things we have yet are happy and content. Yes! we all have situations that steal our joy but being happy doesn’t mean the absence of problems but the ability to deal with them. Plus you should understand things happen for a reason in other for us to grow and learn, it’s all a process so embrace everything that happens in your life, both the good and the bad. Many people are waiting for their circumstances to be worked out before they decide to be happy. If you are going to be happy, you need to make a decision to be happy right now. Happiness does not depend on your circumstances but on your will.
You aren’t happy with your body size, ask yourself if you are treating your body well, aren’t happy with your grades try harder, you are studying a course you aren’t happy studying, you know what to do, aren’t happy with where you are in life but can't physically change it, accept it and make the most out of it. You just aren’t happy with something, change it. If it’s out of your control why worry about it, cast your burdens unto the Lord and he will sustain you. Sometimes we make the habit of putting our happiness in people and get disappointed when they don't live up to our expectation which is wrong. No one is responsible for our happiness except us alone.
Happiness sometimes can be easy to get/feel but hard to sustain, I feel that only happens when we derive happiness from material things. Find out what makes you genuinely happy and make it happen.  Life is too short to be depressed, happiness is not out there it’s in you, you alone are in charge of your happiness. Don’t let silly things steal your happiness

Final word
Never let your happiness depend on something or someone. Only in God will you find true happiness.

Thank you all for reading and God bless..

  1. So perfectly written. I had to learn that happiness isn't something that you get but something that you make/decide. I still sometimes in challenging times have to remind myself that circumstance have nothing to do with how happy I can be and that it's always up to me.
    Great Inspiration post Bernie.
    Thank you for sharing. Have a lovely week ahead :)
