Do you love your life? Or do you sometimes feel dissatisfied, certain that you would be a lot happier if you had a bigger home, better relationships, more money, more leisure time, more friends…

A lot of us keep striving for happiness, convincing ourselves that more money, going shopping, a pay raise or a vacation, will somehow bring us closer to that happiness that we crave. Many of us equate happiness with success and success with money. Trust me, a lot of rich people are not happy. They are still searching for that “something” that will fill that void.

On the other hand, you will often find people who seem to be happy, cheerful and positive against all the odds, all the time. Perhaps they know exactly what “adversity” means or perhaps they have little to no money to spare for non-essentials… but they are always smiling, and they are uplifting to be around. They are living their life to its fullest. (as we all should).

So how can YOU start loving the life you have, rather than making yourself miserable striving for one that you don’t?

I think for starters you have to stop living in the “grass is always greener on the other side” mentality. Many of us have a tendency to think that other people have it better or that our current circumstances are not as good as they were in the past. Just because your neighbors or friends LOOK like they are well-rounded, does not mean they are.

If YOU want to be happy, you have to start with yourself. Ask God for guidance in your life. Trust me, if you are humble in asking Him, He will open up a whole new life that you never knew existed. You just have to believe! :)

I know this to be true, I asked Him to guide me five years ago and my life has never been the same!
