In Search of HappinessDecember 16, 2013
“What is your aspiration in life? Oh, my aspiration in life would be to be happy.” – “Pretty Hurts”, Beyonce.
Success. Friends. Money. Love. Experiences. – we crave these things because they are a means to happiness.
Are you happy?
What would make you happier right now?
If you know the answer, go out and do what you need to do. Make happiness happen.
If you drew a blank, then consider this:
BIG bursts of happiness (professional success, new love, a newborn child) will probably only happen a few times in your entire life.
Instead of waiting for the next big thing, take a close look around you and notice the slow, steady stream of happiness that makes it into your life every day.
Every single week, you go to a place that welcomes you with open arms, regardless of how you feel, your attitude, how you look, or how your day went.
You see familiar faces from all walks of life and you expand your social circle whenever you want.
You learn new skills that other people your age have long given up on, or don’t even know about.
You can see (in Wodify, in the mirror, in your muscles) how much you’ve improved recently.
People who care about you stand next to you and cheer your name. They clap for you, pat you on the back and tell you you’re doing a great job.
You motivate others to do better, and you are thanked for it each and every time.
When stop and think about, that’s pretty amazing. Lucky you!
You belong to a group of positive people who are getting better every day. And you go to a place with these people where only good things happen. And at the end of the day, you are happier person because of it.
So when you feel like times are tough, stress is overwhelming, or you just aren’t quite as happy as you want to be, try to recognize the small doses of happiness that are all around you.
If you can’t see the bits of happiness in your work or home life, then just go to your happy place. We’re open every single day and we are here to make you happy.This entry was posted in News & Events. Bookmark the permalink. ← Saturday, December 14th Holiday Hours →
