Finding happiness

Struggling through life, you look for the feeling of being happy.  This concept has a different meaning for every person.  Having a great and fulfilling career, a close family, enjoying time with your children…and of course meeting and creating life with a special someone.

Life is always full of surprises and you never know what cards you will be dealt at a particular point in life. You go through hardship and tough times, which is the perfect time to learn to love yourself. Then one day it will all come together as you start to blossom and feel complete.  Not to say that you need a partner to fulfil you.  Quite the opposite.  A person cannot appreciate and enjoy companionship fully until such person can be whole on his or her own accord.  There is a saying that you should learn to love yourself first and not look for someone to complete you.  This is very true and resonates on all levels.

It would be a perfect world if we could all find that someone who makes you feel butterflies in your stomach and makes you smile for no reason all day every day.  Unfortunately, many people go through life and never come close to experiencing such feelings.  Often it is because we do not learn to have an open mind and to give everyone that crosses your path a chance in one way or the other.  Sometimes, it is just the circumstances and the choices made that prevent us from finding true happiness and most importantly true love.

If you are one of the lucky ones and you manage to find ‘the magic’ – hold on to it tight with both hands and never let it go.  We only live once, there is no draft to rewrite and there is often only one chance to make something work.

So firstly, learn to love yourself. Once you achieve that – open your heart, open your mind and one day you may be blessed with meeting someone who will blow your away and make you realise just how much you can feel and how much you are willing to give to another, who is not related to you by blood.  Start today or you are risking letting your happiness pass you by.
