No matter what our plans in life.
No matter what our goals are.
No matter who we are…
we all have a need to feel significant, and that the path we choose will bring happiness, peace, and meaning to our lives.
Now it’s understood that everyone travels a different route to bring a smile on their faces… but too often our travels cause us stress, indecision, and worry.
Why is it that when we’re pursuing what we want… we experience feelings we don’t need?
The answer is simple:
WHEN WE PURSUE WHAT WE WANT…
WE TEND TO LOSE SIGHT OF THE JOURNEY!
Within the pursuit of happiness, we begin to only focus on our own wants and needs! (and nothing else). So when things don’t go our way, which is guaranteed to happen during our pursuits, it feels as if the world is against us… causing stress, indecision, and worry.
In reality… we forget that everyone is going through something, because we’re only focused on our wants.
So how do we bring a little happiness, peace, and meaning into our lives during the journey?
To do this… there are 3 things we should do everyday:
We all are taught to pursue what we love… but we shouldn’t lose sight of loving life in the process. This means showing interest in someone else’s life, taking time to indulge in an outside activity, and sharing your happiness, peace, and meaning with someone else.
There is a whole world outside of our interest. We put so much time and effort into our pursuits, that we often neglect what the world has to offer. We should never stop learning, everything we learn shouldn’t be for personal or financial gain. There is so much to learn outside of ourselves that will both enrich and add joy to our lives.
It’s amazing how so many fail to understand this simple concept! If you want more, give more! But we shouldn’t give with the intention of getting something in return. Everyday… we should strive to give what is unreturnable, and priceless. Give wisdom, advice, assistance, time, a helping hand, and hope… Give Back!
