Happiness-Why Wait Until Everything is Just Right?

Published on October 6, 2012 by

Happiness isn't about everything being "right" in our lives--it's about embracing what is while going for what can be.

No one that I know of has the perfect life. Some have more of what they want than others when it comes to health, connection with others, work that is fulfilling and financially rewarding and so on.

Everyone's life isn't equal, but then again, neither is how we go about dealing with what is.

Some of us go through life and work complaining or wishing things were different and others of us wake up and ask "What do I want today to be like and how can I co-create that?"

Some of us go through life paying more attention to what isn't "right" about our health, job or relationships. Yet, some of us are aware of these things and choose to put our attention on what we have rather than what we don't have--yet.

To have more of what we want, to have more joy, happiness, fulfillment--and yes, even more money--it's vital to embrace what is while investing our energy into attracting and bringing to life more of what we want.

Embracing what is doesn't mean giving up or resigning ourselves to what is. It means we quit fighting what is with our complaining, worrying and fears. "Fighting" what we want only gives it more energy to grow. Instead, we can say "This is what is for now" and then shift our focus to what we want.

Better yet, we can accept and embrace what is (for now) and ask ourselves what we can learn about self, life and the universe. We can ask "What can I learn from this? How can I grow from this?"

We are far more powerful than we imagine. Our thoughts are more powerful than we imagine. Our beliefs and assumptions are more powerful than we know.

Life will never be perfect, whether it is life at work, life at home or life elsewhere. But it can always be better than it is.We live in an abundant universe that pulsates with creative energy. We can always co-create and experience more happiness, meaning and fulfillment in life.

But not by waiting until everything is right or by resisting what isn't just right yet. We can have more happiness and joy by embracing what is and by envisioning what can be--and  by making the choices and doing what will take us in that direction.

Happiness isn't about everything being "right" in our lives--it's about embracing what is--while going for what can be.
