At times, we find ourselves comparing our lives with the lives of those around us. This can leave us feeling like we’re behind or not good enough. It’s important to remember that our life experiences are our own. And it doesn’t do any good to compare ourselves to others. Life isn’t a competition or a race. We are each on our own path. And it’s okay to take your time and find your own way and do what makes you happy.
Choose Your Happy Place and Enjoy Your Life
Do you have a happy place? This can be a real place or an imagined place. The key is that it makes you feel better – no matter what. Your happy place might be the ocean, the mountains, your favorite place as a kid, a memory that you can replay in your head, or anything that holds special meaning for you.
Maybe you already have a happy place that you go to when you need to recharge. If not, I invite you to think about a place that brings you a calm and happy feeling, a place that leaves you feeling better than before. Once you know where your happy place is, make a point to visit this place often in your imagination. Or if it’s an actual place, then go and visit it whenever possible. This will leave you feeling recharged, recentered, and refreshed.
It’s also important to make time to play, to do things that bring you joy and make you feel alive; to enjoy life, and to live it to the fullest. Find what feels good and right for you, and what makes you feel happy, fulfilled, and content. Our guides and Council often tell us to not take life too seriously. In Brian Smith’s recent appearance on Soul Guide, we talked about how his Council told him, “Any one life is not that big of a deal… There’s always a do-over.” It’s okay to relax and enjoy life.
What is Happiness? Well, It’s All About Experiences
Remember life is just an accumulation of experiences. In Ken’s LBL session, his Council told him, “There is no success or failure, just learning. Enjoy it. Enjoy yourself.” There is no good or bad – only experiences. Life is much more than getting from point A to point B. And life can be so beautiful if we just let it.
Have faith in yourself. Have faith in God. Have faith in the universe, your guides, your higher self… Yes, there are lessons and suffering in this earth life. But, there is also beauty, love, and joy here. And you deserve all the happiness you can find. Go to the places, people, and things that make you happy and bring you joy.
Happiness is all around you. Allow it. Receive it. Embrace it. It is YOURS.
