I found lasting happiness in my life. This is no “secret” that needs to be revealed and it is a condition WITHIN each human that each of us can discover. How do you discover it?
I can only tell you how I discovered my own lasting happiness. It occurred when I realized and put into practice that “if it’s to be, it’s up to me.” Why did this mindset bring me happiness? The mindset of “if it’s to be, it’s up to me” brought me lasting happiness because I was no longer beholden to anyone or anything FOR my happiness. My happiness came from what I created in my life, not what others created around me. I took my power back from people and things so that they no longer had power over me. What is in my life is what I bring to it including my success, abundance, prosperity, Love, kindness, peace, compassion, etc. certainly there are stimuli that operate on my mind, emotions, body and soul and I decide how to respond to them and not how others want me to respond.
This is not an easy practice as it takes tremendous discipline. I found that as I continued creating my own reality, it became easier and easier. My life is the happiness I make it. The power is in me. I choose the approach to life that says, “if it’s to be, it’s up to me.”
