Be Happy NOW

Happiness is not a destination - it's a daily way of being and a choice. It doesn't just 'happen' and it's not driven by anything external. It's a 100% internal focus and it always will be. Being happy does not come when the mortgage is paid off, when you win a million dollars or when a new flat screen TV arrives in your living room - sure it's gives you a temporary injection of dopamine but that eventually wares off and you're searching for the next thing and the next thing. Happiness is not measured in square footage and no one else can give it to you. Happiness is inside of you and it's ignited daily through unconditional love and acceptance. The moment you decide to love everything and everyone that shows up you will be at greater levels of inner peace. No one in your life has to change - they are showing up exactly as they need to. It's when we try and change others that we needlessly suffer. The key to unconditional happiness is to change the way you are choosing to look and respond to people and circumstances. 

Remember the TV series Seinfeld when George decides to do everything the opposite way? He meets new people, embraces new levels of change by trying something new that he didn't already do.  The key is to see things FRESHLY. Start each day from a beginners mind. Embrace each moment. Love without attachment and soak in your one precious life.
