Ever questioned how you can find happiness in your life? Or what is the way or recipe to cook happiness in your life? Let us unveil this question in this blog.
Before cooking happiness, let’s learn what’s the meaning of happiness. Happiness is a universal pursuit. It is a satisfactory emotion that everyone secretly wishes for, but nobody wants to pay attention to. More precisely, happiness is the fundamental desire of human experiences.
If you think happiness has the same meaning for two different people, you might be translating it wrong. Happiness is basically preferences; no two people have the same preferences for the universe. Thus, happiness looks different for every person. Even if it’s about someone, you love the most or your trusted partner.
For consideration, let’s explore the case of two partners where one wants to buy his dream car for so long. As soon as he fulfilled his dream, the two partners seemed happy. While one is happy about fulfilling his dream, the other is happy to see his partner being happy. That’s how they might be simultaneously happy, but the cause of happiness is different for each.
Though happiness has different meanings for every individual, and thus there is no common recipe to bring happiness in your life. But here are a few things that can help you fulfill your life’s purpose. We can cultivate lasting happiness and well-being by incorporating these ingredients into our daily lives.
Accepting yourself is the first and most basic step towards a happy life. Embrace your true self and live authentically. Stop hiding your true self or wearing masks to please people. Let the social pressure and expectations go away.
Stop complaining about your flaws and inferiorities rather than take time and be thankful for what you have. Further, express your thankfulness to the people around you who make your life better.
Since happiness is all about positivity, cultivate meaningful connections around you. Start spending time with the people who value and appreciate your true self. Surround yourself with the positive people who uplift you.
Appreciate yourself before expecting others. Nurture yourself with love, care, and compassion. Engage in activities that bring you joy, peace, and relaxation, whether practicing mindfulness, engaging in hobbies, exercising, or spending time in nature.
The author of the transformative book, “Becoming Flawesome,” Kristina Mand-Lakhiani, says that there is no such fixed recipe for happiness. Happiness is a customized concept for everyone. Thus stop expecting yourself to be perfect or assuming a one-to-fit approach for yourself. That’s how you can find true happiness in your life. For more explanation, you must read her book. In her book, she has beautifully connected the dots of happiness and authenticity through her real-life experiences.
Concluding, the recipe for happiness is unique for every individual. But you can always bring happiness by practicing the art of #becomingflawesome.
