I’m already in my happily ever after

“And they lived happily ever after.” Think about this line for a few minutes. Are you living happily ever after? If not, what will it take for you to get there?

I love life. I love everything about my life and would therefore say that I’m already in my Happily Ever After place.

This statement might sound like a contradiction to previous posts where I have talked about wanting a new job, but trust me, I can confirm that despite occasionally feeling that I can do more, I AM happy. At the end of the day I’m human, and I sometimes feel restless, and sometimes I long for more meaning. When I stop to think about what I ALREADY HAVE my heart swells with love and happiness.

Why am I happy?

- I’m surrounded by the most amazing people ever

- I take great pleasure from the smallest of things

- I take part in lots of activities and don’t shy away from new experiences

- I have my health

- I see beauty in almost everything. I’m an incredibly soft, sad sap!

I still have ambitions and hope that later in life I will be more financially secure than I am now, and I constantly strive to be a better person, more spiritually grounded and more receptive to the universe.

The best thing about these aspirations is the getting there. The journey - enjoying more experiences, appreciating new people, admiring new surroundings.  I believe that if we live life with an open heart then happiness is inevitable.

  2. I loved this post. It’s so nice to see people with such an optimistic perspective on life. I’m happy that you’re already living happily ever after :) I think taking pleasure from the smallest things really does help. Often we take things for granted. When we recognize the small things in life, happiness is much more fulfilling.
