Happiness is personal. I know you have heard of it before

Whether you are happy or not, it depends on you.

Question 1: HOW CAN I BE HAPPY?

Beloved, for days I know you have been sad; perhaps maybe due to the things going on around the world. Here is one thing I want you to understand, you can be happy. All you need to do is realize that this world is not your home. Remember, you are just passing through. The thought of heaven should bring a smile to your face.

Put aside that; you can be happy no matter what. Put yourself first, value and love who you are. One of the inner critic to personal happiness is YOU.

Question 2: WHAT CAN I DO TO BE HAPPY?

Okay, you don’t need to pay a comedian before you can be personally happy. Like it is said in the previous paragraph, YOU is an essential factor to happiness. Ask yourself this:

  1. What do I understand by being happy?
  2. Is there something that makes me smile often?
  3. What truly makes me happy?
  4. Can I practise self-happiness?

QUESTION 3: DO I NEED SOMEONE’S APPROVAL TO BE HAPPY?

If you are looking for someone’s go-ahead to be happy; you are only destroying yourself in the process. While you need friends to be satisfied with, friends who will make you happy; you don’t need the approval of someone to stay happy.

If that goal makes you happy; do it before you regret it.

If going for a mountain trip stirs up butterflies in you; do it, you never can tell what is ahead.

Question 4: WHAT IF I HAVE A CIRCLE THAT DOESN’T WANT MY HAPPINESS?

The answer is simple, change your circle

Toxic minds can destroy your true happiness

Remember, you are responsible for your happiness in life

Have you stayed sad or unhappy today? Maybe because of one thing or the other; I want you to do something. Take some time off social media if you must; take a quick stroll if you can, do something that makes you happy. Laugh out loud and if you feel sad within still; here is another thing to do. PRAY; for we serve a God who is touched by the things we feel

You don’t need anyone’s approval to be happy; stay self happy
