Many people look for transformations to occur in their lives on the outside, without realising that a transformation must occur within first, in order to feel the ripple effects in their outer lives.
We spend money or aim for the next thing that will make us 'happy' fleetingly; the latest shiny objects, the big house, the flash car, designer clothes, the latest this, the latest that, the next big promotion. We buy things that make us happy temporarily, or tell ourselves we will be happy when reach a certain point or reached a certain goal. But happiness needs to occur on the journey, not at the destination, and certainly not through purchases or experiences that give us fleeting happiness. We must take the time to make ourselves happy from within on a more daily regular basis. A happiness derived from the people we are today and who we are growing into, and the gratitude for what we already have.
A lot of social media these days promotes chiselled abs, quick 6 week sculpted body transformations, fad diets & shakes in order to lose weight, but happiness is not found in an Instagram model body, that society tells us will make us happy, and make our lives magically all come together. No! The life we want, happiness and fulfilment all start from within. Figuring out what is right for us and makes us happy, and changing who we are to create THAT life. Levelling up as a person to be the person you always wanted to be, unleashing your fullest potential, believing you are worthy of a life you want, with the people in it you want, cultivating balance and day stacking good day upon good day because of the daily habits and grace which you bring to each day. THAT is what makes for a good life.
But we don't prioritise investing time into ourselves, which is really what will make you happy. Invest in self first, make yourself happy from within. Truly deeply happy with yourself. THEN go and buy those nice things that may enhance your life like the nice car that you love and gives you a thrill of driving, or the pair of shoes that make you feel even more confident when you step out of the house. But don't expect these things to give you happiness first and foremost. That comes first from within. A transformation from the inside out.
