We all strive for only one thing which is HAPPINESS. No one wants to be UNHAPPY in life. But we always misunderstand happiness. Actually, it is simple and easy to be happy in life. I have found 5 keys to being happy and I called it happiness FLAGS. So let’s start our journey to know the 5 keys to easy, simple and real happiness in life.
Here are Happiness FLAGS:
We come across many bad incidences in life that left us with anger, grudges, sorrow and pain. Sometimes someone wronged us and we move ahead in life with a lot of grudges and anger for the person or incident. Such bad memories never left us alone, and keep coming to us time and again and make us UNHAPPY.
Forgiveness is a great tool that can make us free from those bad memories. You have to forgive the person from the bottom of your heart who has wronged you. Irrespective of the person being sorry or not for what he/she has done. This will help you make peace with a past bad experience.
It helps you move ahead in life without grudges and pain. You will be free from all the mind chatters that used to come anytime to recall the bad incident. In case it still visits, but this time it has less or no power that can hurt you. After you forgive you feel so light in your head due to no or fewer chatters. This will help you make room in your mind for new possibilities.
So FORGIVE and get HAPPINESS in form of PEACE.
L: Less Expectation
We depend on others a lot for our own happiness. For example, we become UNHAPPY, if someone says something that we have not expected. We become UNHAPPY if someone does not behave the way we have expected them to. This way we give power to others to make us UNHAPPY whenever they want.
Have LESS EXPECTATION from others for the HAPPINESS.
People and situations are never going to be in our control. So instead of being upset when they do not go the way you want them to, practice accepting it the way they are. This will make your life a lot easier than before. You will be saved from a lot of drama that takes place in mind when you are upset. This will give you the freedom to be happy in any situation irrespective of it is bad or good.
Start ACCEPTING people the way they are to have INDEPENDENT HAPPINESS.
There are many things around us that are freely and easily available to us. Like food, water, shelter, family and friends etc. The list is countless. Instead of being thankful for those blessings, we are always engrossed in what we don’t have. We take all these blessings for granted. To become happier every day and in every moment, we must focus and start counting our blessings.
Have GRATITUDE for what you have to become HAPPY every day, every minute.
We are always attracted to materialistic things. If we meet our one materialistic desire, the next desire always pops up and we start running towards it. We are never able to say this is enough for me now. These materialistic things always make us run after them. If we don’t learn to say enough to those materialistic desires, then it will always make us run after them. If we say enough to those desires then we will become content and become HAPPY.
Have SATISFACTION towards materialistic things to have HAPPINESS.
