Happiness. This experience is loved and always desired by everyone. But many people don’t know how to get it, especially people at their end of life. We find this to be typical because of the discomfort and health issues that come with the final stages of life.

Also, people don’t understand where true happiness originates. Some think happiness comes from their situation. For instance, they have wealth, health, and great relationships. But the truth is that faithful and authentic happiness does not come from our external circumstances.

Not so. It comes from within, and you may stay unhappy forever if you don’t know how to find it.

Are you at the end of your life or encountering a difficult time? You can learn to be happy.

End Of Life – Enjoying Happiness From Within

“Life is good if we live in such a way to make it so.” This quote was coined from an inspirational message. But it is true.

What the inspirational message calls “a good life” comes from the way we do things, the words we choose to say, and even the kind of thoughts we choose to have.

For instance, a walk through the park on the way to a meeting feels like an obstacle. But a walk in the park for no reason at all feels like a luxury and a joy.

Have you lost touch with the innate playful spirit you had when you were a child? Could you find a way to bring it back?

Make time to do things for the sake of enjoyment and bring an attitude of fun and play to your daily life and experiences.

Indeed, life is good if we live in such a way to make it so. Believing, desiring, deciding, and making proper choices are the simple actions that define an increase in happiness.

Even more, it increases the inner assurance that transcends this life.

Ways To Enjoy Happiness From Within

Be Grateful For The Blessings In Your Life

Feel blessed to have so many great things in your life – family, friends, and faith. Let this truth be in your thoughts daily.

Besides, there is a saying that goes, “Worrying is like praying for what you don’t want.” In most instances, worrying about the future is no more logical or warranted than expecting a positive outcome.

Your life experience likely shows that most things work out in the end. Again, “Life is good if we live in such a way to make it so.”

Keep Hope Alive

Never lose your hope. Occasionally we hear anecdotal accounts about individuals who grew up in troubled homes but fought against all odds and became very wealthy.

“Such stories are sometimes cited as evidence that they made the best of a bad situation. That is to say that, all things still turned out well, despite the people’s unhappy childhoods,” explains a report on happiness in the San Francisco Chronicle.

Thanksgiving And Finding True Happiness

Thanksgiving occasion is unique, and the fantastic thing about Thanksgiving is that it’s purely about getting together with friends or family and enjoying the time.

It is an occasion for everybody, no matter where you are from or what you do for a living. Thanksgiving is one way to enjoy true happiness because it’s an expression of living from within.

Still, on finding happiness, King Solomon of the Bible experimented with pleasure to see if they held the secret to satisfaction. “I will plunge into pleasure and enjoy myself,” he said. This wealthy king did not wade into them timidly. No, he dived into pleasures! Yet, how did he feel afterward? “This too was emptiness,” he wrote.—Ecclesiastes 2:1, New English Bible.

Conclusion

Whether you are at the end of your life or just experiencing a difficult time, happiness is something you can enjoy. It’s an internal decision you make for yourself. It results from what you choose to think about, talk about, and act out.

You can create true and lasting happiness because it lives within your life.
