What Determines Your Happiness?


Happiness is something that I believe everyone wants to experience. Does any one actually seek to live a life full of sadness?

There are people who become accustomed to unpleasant emotions that they naturally expect to feel a particularly way.

I have been one of them.

And at some point in your life, you probably have too.

Then, like me, you realized that expecting to live an unhappy life is not normal or healthy. So, what did you do about it?

Did you take the time to evaluate your life or perhaps with the help of a therapist you examined the root cause of your unhappiness?

Determining what makes you happy requires you to define what happiness means to you.  Yes, it can have different meanings to different people. But one common denominator is diversion.

We fail to maintain our happiness because there is something, someone or some occurrence that divert us from enjoying our lives.

But let’s be realistic. Isn’t there always going to be something that endeavors to interrupt us from enjoying everyday living?

Perhaps happiness is a bit deeper than we think it is or not.

This month I invite you to join me for the Bible study, “Restoring My Joy” that will be based on the book of Philippians.

The season has changed. The holidays are vastly approaching. You do not have to barely get through living the next couple of months. End your year strong rather than look forward to it being over.

If you would like to be a part of the study session that will also include support and tips to help you deal with the holiday blues, just email me at shulanda@sjhastings.com
