“Happiness is an inside job.”
The quote hit me like a ton of bricks…. I just thought it was so ultimately powerful. Probably because I hear from folks all the time about how they’re unhappy or displeased with some aspect of their life.
- They don’t like the way they look or feel in clothing
- They have aches and pains every time they get out of bed or walk up stairs
- They dread opening their closet to get dressed in anything other than sweatpants
- They feel like a shell of the person they were 10 / 15 / 20 years ago
In short- they’re unhappy. And this quote just boiled it all down: your happiness is YOUR responsibility.
Back to the folks I hear from…. They often list the above unhappiness but then fire off a list of excuses as to why it’s not their fault.
- I don’t have enough time
- I’m too busy at work
- I’ve got a lot of family responsibility
- It’s too expensive
Sorry Charlie, here’s the bitter truth: Your Happiness IS Your Responsibility. Need proof? All you have to do is take a look at the people who are getting it done.
The busy people with the big families, important jobs, and jam-packed schedules. They’re not making excuses...they’re too busy fitting in a workout or taking 5 extra minutes to make a healthful nutrition choice.
If this message rubs you in a not-so-nice way, it’s a good indicator that you NEED to hear it. Take a moment and truly ask yourself “Am I happy?” If the answer is no, go take a look in the mirror and know that the person staring back at you holds all the power to change that answer completely.
And, of course, nobody can (or should) go at it alone… having help helps! If you’d like to turn your frown upside down and truly be happy inside and out, I’d love to help.
