Day 202, Reason 202: Today I am so grateful that, thanks to The Pollyanna Plan, I am no longer waiting for anything to happen or to change in order to be happy now.
After an eventful day yesterday – a day where I had more energy than I’ve had for a long time – today has not been such a good day health wise.
Maybe it’s something to do with the new supplement I’ve been taking to help balance my immune system – I gave myself a break from it for a couple of days and took a slightly higher dose this morning – or maybe it’s totally unrelated. Who knows!
But the thing that struck me today is how I happy I feel, regardless of this minor setback to my health. Happiness always used to be something I thought I’d find…
When I was healthy again.
When I had some energy.
When I was earning money.
When I had a proper career.
When I’d found my purpose in life.
When I had a boyfriend…
When, when, when! And you know what? It turns out that “when” is now!
I now realise that I was putting my happiness on hold until one of these things materialised, never for one moment comprehending that I didn’t need anything outside of myself to feel happiness right now, in this moment, no matter what.
I know it sounds cheesy, but happiness really does come from within and I am very grateful for having truly understood such a valuable lesson. 🙂
31 Day Giving Challenge – Day 14 Gift 14: Today I sent a cheery greeting card to a seriously ill child through this wonderful website – Post Pals. There are similar sites in USA, if you feel inspired to do the same. 🙂
