You search for happiness every day: in the taste of your food, in conversations with your friends, in lovely comics, in fantasies you create inside your brain, etc.
It is natural to seek happiness but even if we ‘live for that’, we can’t master it easily.
Personally, I have found that happiness is something I need to accept from things around me:
Every day I actively search for things that make my day worth living it so I can go sleep happy and wake up energized.
Then, at night, I decide about tomorrow. What will make me feel like it was ‘worth the pain’?
It can be meeting with someone, write a newsletter or draw for more than 1 hour, and similar things.
But... Why should I be happy to add advice on a post on a website? Why hustle to create visual content? Why should I feel happy to constantly write in a language I am not proficient?
Drafting, editing, scheduling, marketing,… isn’t it a weekly pain?
Well, this work doesn’t feel tiring because I find happiness through working within a purpose, certain values, and high goals.
I know what I stand for and what I am fighting for. If I live (continuous action) through those values and I can move my goals forward, I feel overall happy and motivated.
But that is not the key. That is just how I do it. You don’t necessarily need a super goal right now to be happy.
My advice for you is to decide what will make you happy tomorrow based on what you know about yourself now and thinking about the person you would like to become.
Is it eating a piece of chocolate what will make you happy tomorrow? Is it find 30 minutes to chat with your best friend and laugh together?
Trust me. This might not be the solution to depression or avoid all the sad moment from your life but it helps A LOT.
Remember your happy moments every day and decide the next ones beforehand. They feel extra sweet when you've fought for them!
