images…  they are unhappy with themselves.

We always want to be accepted and respected and sometimes we come up against people who it seems are never happy with anyone or anything. You know the type – the boss who you can never please; the partner who always wants you to be better; the friend who is always competing with you. Where does this come from?

It comes from an overall lack of contentedness in oneself. After all, how can you be happy with anyone if you are not happy with yourself first? This is where it begins.

If someone is feeling great about themselves, e.g. they have been losing weight, new hair cut, new job, new relationship, they are usually on top of the world and that helps them to relate better to other people. But when someone is feeling down and unhappy with their weight, sluggish, feeling not good enough at their job and with their performance in a relationship, then they find it extremely difficult to connect with others and see the beauty in others. But whose fault is that?

We tend to take on other’s unhappiness with themselves and make it about us. In those instances, it is NEVER about you. Remember you cannot control others and their opinions of you or themselves. That is not the name of the game. The name of the game is to BE HAPPY WITH YOURSELF and feel good enough in your skin so that other people’s comments and opinions simply roll off you. They should never stick to you unless you want them to.

The next time you are feeling that someone is not treating you kindly and isn’t happy with you, send them love and realize that it is not you that they are unhappy with, it is themselves. For if they were truly happy with themselves, they would be able to communicate with you in a much more fair, kind and motivating fashion. If they are being unkind, unfair or mean, it is most likely about them. Never make other’s unhappiness with themselves about you. It is your happiness with yourself that is the key to setting you free. Are you happy with yourself?

Happiness_Here_70_Feature_Image-639x373… is the magic elixir of life.

In our society, we understand the importance of working hard to make the money but we seldom understand the importance of creating the space in our lives to enjoy what that money can afford us. 

It is so often that we work so hard to make a living that we forget our lives. We put ourselves in such time impoverished positions that we can feel our lives being sucked away from us minute by minute. Busying yourself to make the money yields you little to no reward.  We think money is its own reward, but we are wrong. Happiness is its own reward and it cannot be found if we are too busy to open up to it.

Happiness is not something that you earn or that you are “lucky enough to come across.” Happiness doesn’t just happen to you, it is cultivated from within. But you will never be able to experience true happiness if you do not slow down and create small moments to enjoy your life. 

You can make all the money in the world, but if you have no time to enjoy it, it doesn’t serve you. Finding the balance between work and self-joy is the key. When you can allocate enough time in your life to enjoy the money you have earned, it is as if you are giving thanks to the universe and showing gratitude for the abundance in your life. Abundance always draws more abundance to you. But if you are exhausted and feeling time impoverished, you will continue to feel as if you are chasing your tail. And where there is no self-joy, there will never be true abundance. We need to create real space in our busy lives for happiness to enter.

If you truly want to be happy, find the space in your life to ENJOY your life, to truly enjoy the fruits of your labor. Otherwise your life will always just be about the labor. The money will always follow. Self-joy is what will attract true abundance – not working endless hours in an office. Once you carve out the space for happiness to enter, the people, the relationships, the joy will all return to your life. They cannot live in a world where there is no space for them. Everything is energy and where there is no space, there will never be happiness.

… by creating SPACE.

We make things harder than they have to be. We tend to create lots of physical clutter in our spaces and that always translates to mental and emotional clutter. We are energetic beings and we are highly sensitive to our surroundings. Everything is energy. The energy of clutter weighs very heavy on the nervous system and stimulates a level of discomfort and confusion in our minds. When we create space in our physical surroundings (by clearing off our desks or cleaning out our closets or throwing away knick-knacks from display spaces), we create a sense of space to breathe and BE. This newfound physical space translates directly into a mental space of ease. The less you own, the lighter you feel.

The way it works is that physical clutter stimulates the mental response of “confusion and chaos is near at hand” and the emotional response is generally a level of unease which roughly translates to either increased states of anxiety or the opposite – lethargy and laziness. Either way, as energetic beings, our surroundings dictate our moods. If you want to be happy and easeful in your life, SIMPLY THINGS. Get rid of clutter and objects that have no importance to you. Creating space in our lives helps to create space in our minds and hearts. Learn to lessen your load so life can become happier and much more easeful.
