The fastest road to happiness is a road we would all like to travel.
If there is such a road, why do we not travel it more often?
Life can have so many distractions, add on top of that the amount of fear and uncertainty around at the moment, and it’s easy to understand why people may think happiness is a step too far.
Well, in my experience, happiness is never too far away.
Many people say that I must have been blessed with happiness, I say blessed because I’m happy most of the time. And if I were to put into words why. Why I’m happy most of the time, I would have to say it is because I put others in front of myself. I pick up on peoples gifts and talents and then let them know, through praise and acknowledgement.
Sounds too easy, right?
Attaining happiness can’t be that easy. Can it? A few simple words to a stranger?
Well, put it into action yourself. The next time you have a good meal, send a message to the chef. Walk by a painter painting a sign, highlight his/her skills. Taxi driver leaves you off compliment there driving.
These are the little moments that don’t take much time, but they add so much value to others, and in the process, they make you happy.
As it says in the good book, give, and you shall receive. So give compliments, encouragement, and praise everywhere you go this weekend and see how much happiness you receive.
Be the voice of hope you want to hear.
