“The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet.” James Oppenheim.
This quote by James Oppenheim reminds me that happiness is a state of mind and comes from within. The times in my life when I have been unhappy are normally when I am not displaying the me that I want to be. To become happy again I just remind myself of the things I am happy about by asking myself simple questions like
- What am I happy about?
- What have I learnt today?
- Who have I helped today?
- Who loves me?
- Whom do I love? and
- What is the next action?
I encourage you to record your own version of this quote with your own voice and put it into a “happiness attitudes” or “attitudes” playlist within Miaffirmations.
Here is a recording example I made for my own playlists.
