Updated on March 4, 2020
When I was growing up, for some reason, I always made it a priority to put people’s feelings and needs before my own. No matter if they were mean to me or did something to hurt me, I made it a priority to never stoop down to their level and hurt them back. I thought that putting my happiness on the back burner would do me some “good” and earn me some type of “points” for being a good person. No matter how much of this made me sad, I still put others needs, feelings and even their wants before my own.
Fast-forward to present day and this is not the case anymore. I no longer put anyone else’s matters before my own. I come first and I always will.
I’ll explain why…
I finally realized that after all these years, in order for me to live a full and happy life, I must go about and know myself. I must understand myself and who I am and stop lying to myself about what makes me happy. I must not do things because the world says I should or because it’s the right thing to do.
Deep down inside I knew the answers to what I was searching for all along; I was just scared to accept something that I had not been taught in school or that my parents didn’t told me about. I felt bad. The truth is, I don’t feel bad or ashamed for knowing the truth and my purpose in life. I now know and understand how to make myself happy.
How I Live A Happy Life
I put myself first. I come first in my life. It is my duty and mine alone to make myself happy and to fulfill myself. Not some false hope or another person. Me and only me. I am not saying that other people don’t make me happy, because they do. It’s up to me to control my emotions and to understand that happiness starts on the inside and shines on the outside. Being happy starts first with loving and knowing yourself and not being ashamed of who you are.
I do what I want to do; on my own terms. I am my own boss. No one tells me what to do or when to do it. Not in anything. I make my own decisions. I am my own person. I reap the benefits of creating a life for myself where I am in control of myself and my actions.
I don’t let anyone control my emotions. Sometimes people will upset you. That may happen in life but only you have the power to react – or not. I usually don’t. No one controls my feelings except me. It’s taken me years to master my emotions and now I have them under my control. If a situation is turning out to be unpleasant, I remove myself from that situation or I become observant and remain silent. I don’t tolerate what I don’t want to tolerate.
I do what I enjoy. People will tell you that sometimes you have to do things you don’t want in order to get what you want in life. You must fight the hardest battles ever known to man to get to the other side. Who made that up? Where is that written? You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to.
There are always other ways and avenues to get things done or do something that are pleasant and painless. I don’t believe in having to do things that are on the extreme side of uncomfortable or extremely difficult to get what I want. Not at all.
This is not to say that life’s journey will be a comfortable ride. Without challenges, we don’t grow. What I am saying is that the challenges that you may face when growth is required will be within your tolerance level. Otherwise you wouldn’t have signed up for the ride.
I’ve been able to have a pleasant journey through life without doing extremely difficult or grueling tasks to accomplish my goals. I’ve been able to map out a plan to live my life on my terms, doing what I enjoy. So can you.
I meditate. Meditating is the most invigorating experience I have come to know. It allows me to relax, live a full life and let go. It allows me to be free and think about absolutely nothing. Also, It allows me to be still. It reminds me that my life is so very important. My life is my everything. When I focus on breathing while meditating, it reminds me how my breath gives me life. And my life is precious and I want to live it to the fullest every single day.
Sometimes I enjoy being still so much that I don’t want to do anything at all. I just want to be.
I am grateful. I am grateful for all of my experiences in my life which have molded me into the woman I am today. I am strong, I am unstoppable and I am fierce. I am grateful for those who I love dearly and I am grateful for the wonderful life I have. This is really a dream life. I can do whatever I want, whenever I want and it’s absolutely astonishing. And I am forever grateful for waking up from a life that I no longer wanted to the life of my dreams.
