Why you will never find happiness

Why you will never find happiness

For many years I just wanted to be happy. Is that too much to ask? I’m sure you’re no different, the pursuit for happiness is present in everybody.Isn’t it quite reasonable to have a few little comforts that make us feel alive, secure, and happy. I wrote a blog a while ago ‘Why I’m Giving up My Search for Happiness‘ and it has been on my mind the last few days. Did I really give up this search for happiness? No, not really. I thought working on my spiritual journey and being told to let go of the search...

How to find your happiness in 3 minutes!

Happiness, what is it? Where is it? Can I have some of it…? Wait, wait… slow down. Don’t skip! It’s right here… YES!  It’s in the mundane, the normal, going to work, the dishes, taking the children to school or doing the housework. REALLY? Why? Because, if something goes wrong, your health deteriorates, lose your job or an accident you are going to wish you were right back to the mundane. Suddenly the mundane is your new baseline for your happiness. Isn’t happiness up there with job promotions, winning, buying something, lust, desires, new relationship or great sex…? Nope…...

How to find your line of happiness

Everybody has this line of happiness. Or at least that’s what I like to call it. If there’s one thing I’ve learned above everything else, it’s that life is a balancing act between clinging to our desires and pushing away our non-desires. Our idea of happiness is very much distorted from a young age. When we get what we want, whether it is going out to play as an 8 year old, or that glance and smile from someone we have a crush on as a teenager. We interpret that feeling as happiness. It becomes how we always want...

3 Ways to Find some happiness

How is that search for happiness going? If you are anything like me you might describe it as ongoing; it is a constant search for something that is going to make us feel better. We spend so much time grabbing onto something we want next, the ever present desires that we think will lift our spirits, even if just temporarily. When I turned 40 everything in my life changed overnight. I was suddenly single, fed up and at an all-time low. Just getting through each day had become a huge challenge. I was glad to get back into bed so...

The Easy Way to Practice Gratitude

Without a doubt, the number one way to live a happier life is to practice gratitude. But why is it so important, and if it's simply 'appreciating what we have', then why do so few people do it? We become so focused on what we want, what we don't want, and what we haven't got, that we miss out on everything we do have. For weeks we desire a new item we've seen in a shop or online, we save our money or find a way to get it. When we finally get it we feel great, opening the item...

What is happiness? Is it just a state of mind?

When I was around seven years old, I would visit my grandparent's farm most weekends. The front of the bungalow had a large area with banks and slopes perfect for playing. I remember finding an old bike on the farm and pushing it up the side, carefully balancing it on the top of the slope while getting on and then I would free wheel down the slope and try to go as far as I could without falling off. After days of repeating this same action for hours upon hours, I got to the stage that I could ride the...
