Happiness Hack #42 – Being Happy Includes Being Unhappy

Happiness is not all cotton candy and rainbows. For most people happiness is contentment, fulfillment, and satisfaction. It is a belief that you can be the “real you” and life will still turn out great. But for life to be great we have to experience all of our emotions and persevere through all the ups and downs. We have to be authentic in who we are and how we feel. Bad things happen and we feel sad. We see injustices that make us angry. We can be frustrated, or scared, or disgusted. Being authentic means experiencing all of our emotions with an internal understanding that “This too shall pass” and overall we will find happiness and joy in our lives. So don’t worry if you are not constantly happy. Authentically experience all of your emotions in life. Find joy in just being you and remaining confident that happiness can always be a part of your life even while the other emotions come and go as part of the smorgasbord of life.

Live and feel and be the “real you” and you will be happier.

About 

My Passion is helping people become successful and happy. I have found that many people want to be successful but just don’t know how. More importantly, people want to be successful because they feel that reaching some success pinnacle will result in them becoming happy. The research and my experience has shown that just the opposite is the case. Success does not lead to happiness. Happiness leads to success.

Happiness Hack #43 – Practice Your Happy Dance

Have you ever watched a 4 year-old when they found out they get to go to Disney World, or a six-year old when they finally learned to ride a bike or hit a baseball. They celebrate their wins and successes with little dances of happiness and joy. As we grow older we lose that ability to express our joy. We become more serious, start worrying about what people might think of us, and ignore our small successes because we are focused on the bigger goals in life. We are drifting past our opportunities to be a little happier.

Start practicing your happy dance. Do it alone in your bedroom behind a locked door if necessary, but practice how you would act if something great happened to you. Then start practicing on little successes. Do your Happy Dance when you get to work early because of no traffic, or when a good friend reaches out to you, or when you get a great birthday present. Do your Happy Dance just because you know it is going to be a great day.

How many moments in your life can you find to celebrate? The more small moments you can celebrate, the more joy and happiness you can bring into your life and the lives of others.

Do your Happy Dance!

 

“No matter what, do the Happy Dance once a day. It is your own physical expression of sheer joy.” Mary Frances Winters
