I love this quote.

I used to be miserable, unhappy about everything. I would complain about everything that was wrong with my life and had no gratitude for the things that were right. I always thought that the world did me wrong and that everyone owed me something.

That was a very sad state I was in.

I have learned that the world didn’t do anything to me. That I was not wronged by anyone other than myself. The chip on my shoulder that I carried for years was placed there by me and I chose to carry it every where I went. Me and nobody else.

I am responsible for my own happiness. No one else can fulfill that which is inside of me. I have to stand up for what I want and not try to manipulate others into doing things for me. Relying on someone else to make me happy is a unrealistic expectation and I will be disappointed EVERY TIME.

I cannot buy, steal or borrow happiness. It is a feeling and a state of being that I must achieve on my own by practicing some spiritual values. Some of which I choose are Honesty, Willingness,  Acceptance, Faith, Openness, Love, Gratitude and Service to others.

I must be grateful for what I have and not be consumed by what I do not.

Peace and Blessings

  1. I remember those days of blaming everyone and everything. I have a friend stuck in that space now & it’s like talking to a brick wall. I find myself getting quite annoyed and then I stop, take a step back & remember I was once there. I’m so grateful that today I do not play the blame game. I like being in charge of my own happiness. “Happiness isn’t having what you want, but wanting what you have”. Thanks for another great reminder my friend. Stay Blessed.
