Considering everything, how happy are you today?
Don’t despair if you rated yourself as not happy. All things change and there will be a day when you will rate yourself otherwise.
There are things we can do to move towards becoming happier. We are all individuals so one size doesn’t fit all. But understanding ourselves is part of the journey and a good place to start. Wherever you put yourself on the happiness scale today, ask ‘What makes me truly happy?’
Skip the glib answers about winning the lottery or marrying royalty.
You might want to mull your answers to that question over a few days.
And then what? “Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” (Dalai Lama) Over to you.
