Have you ever wished if you were happier? It append to me many times. When I wasn’t happy, I felt that I cannot change it. I was expecting something to happen in my environment, that would make me happy. It never happened.
Other times, when I had a busy day, I felt happy that I had accomplished so much.
Took a while to realize that it wasn’t my environment that caused my happiness, but it just came from being productive. Getting things done. Achieving a goal.
Simple put, I caused my own happiness not something else or someone else.
How can we assist our kids to be happy?
By helping them to achieve a goal, obtain something they are dreaming about, enable them to do something good or accomplish something.
And when we do that, we will be happy.
