Sometimes we need to prime ourselves to start feeling happy. I’ve struggled with not feeling happy for most of my life. I’m not a naturally happy person but over the last few years I’ve learned to build myself up. Now almost every day I truly feel happy (and content!) and I even (most of the time) wear a smile throughout the day.
Learning to be happy wasn’t easy for me. So hard! It required daily… multiple times a day, focus and intent. Even now I have to pay attention to my mood states so I don’t slip but being happy is now SO MUCH EASIER!
For me, I learned that a tiny spark of happiness ignites more happiness. Those little fires require a lot of tending, especially in the beginning, but they grow and soon take a life of their own.
In this episode I share how I begin to generate happiness in my own mind when I need it the most. Hopefully this may help you learn to start feeling happy as well!
