Ever thought to yourself, once I get that amazing job/house/boyfriend etc. then I’ll be happy? What if I told you that the secret to finding that elusive happiness is actually to stop chasing it. I know. I didn’t believe it either. I kept thinking, “If only XYZ… then I’ll be happy.” But it took a steep fall into the darkness of depression to finally get it. And in therapy I learned that you can find happiness right where you are. Right now.
Take just a minute every day to find something that makes you smile, laugh, feel good – if even for a moment. It can be something you see, feel, hear, smell, taste, read, think, remember. It’s your proof that happiness really is all around you. You just have to choose to see it.
