You’ll Never Be Happy If You Tie It To External Events

Celebrate the little things! Find happiness within you rather than the attainment of material things such as aspirations for more money, a better job, the perfect body, etc. Learn to cherish a walk on the beach, meditation, a great cup of coffee, an amazing workout, great food, or time spent with family and friends. Choose to find happiness each day in the little things 🙂

 

“Remind yourself daily that there is no way to happiness; rather, happiness is the way. You may have a long list of goals that you believe will provide you with contentment when they’re achieved, yet if you examine your state of happiness in this moment, you’ll notice that the fulfillment of some previous ambitions didn’t create an enduring sense of joy. Desires can produce anxiety, stress, and competitiveness, and you need to recognize those that do. Bring happiness to every encounter in life, instead of expecting external events to produce joy. By staying in harmony on the path of the Tao, all the contentment you could ever dream of will begin to flow into your life—the right people, the means to finance where you’re headed, and the necessary factors will come together. “Stop pushing yourself,” Lao-tzu would say, “and feel gratitude and awe for what is. Your life is controlled by something far bigger and more significant than the petty details of your lofty aspirations.”
― Wayne W. Dyer,

  1. Loved it 💖 It is true that little things in life matter! And mostly those little things are the ones that give us joy. Therefore, no matter how small or big the moment is, we need to celebrate it. And it is also true that contentment is not hidden in materialistic things. Thus, we need to focus more on the things that make us truly happy.
