I choose happiness

Over the past several years I am slowly learning the true importance of putting my own happiness first. Not in a selfish way, but how can I truly care about others' happiness if I am not happy myself?

It's been a long journey of self-reflecting, self-care, and re-setting. I believe I am finally at a point in my life where I am truly happy with who I am and where I am at (as I continue to grow) and I realize that when others are unhappy, it's not up to me to help them be happy again. I can be there as a support system, but they are truly responsible for their own happiness.

If I am truly happy, then there aren't places or things that will bring me more happiness. I bring the happiness to those places and things.

Are you truly happy? Do you focus more on helping others with their happiness than your own?

 

Light & Love
