Awaken Your Day - The struggle is often in the search. - May 2, 2018

"Happiness is the absence of the striving for happiness."
- Chuang-Tzu
The concept is repeated, but this quote i stumbled on in reading a Tim Ferriss email, sums it up nicely. Like Cole's notes on a cue card instead of a whole book in your pocket.
We all know those little life lessons about how it always feels like eternity when we are waiting for a bus, or a taxi or anything really. And if we are emotionally urgent for whatever it is, then we feel an exaggeration on that feeling. A negative exaggeration. A growing negative exaggeration of an impatient emotion.
We get more anxious. We get aggitated. We get nervous. And so on... and so on... and we do not see that we are the creator of the discomfort that hides the good to come.
Same when we are looking for something - like keys when we have to be somewhere ... or let's just get to it ... love when we are lonely, or Happiness when we just are not living 100%.
Point is. If we "look" too hard, or "wait" with urgent anticipation for some kind of happy to come along ( money, job, person, love) - we often create a very unhappy bus stop to wait at while we look so intently down the road for a sign of dreams to come. And it always starts to feel like it isn't coming.
Pause. Refresh our levels of awareness on just why happiness Will find us - consider all you are, all you have done, why and what there is for reasons to identify happiness in our lives now. We must find some joy in where we are or quite honestly we can miss signs of what we are lookng for right in front of us.
Where do you most often find your keys when they are "lost"? Right where you left them. ( Go on, let it sink in.)
I wish for you a Good Morning, for that will lead you to a Greater Day. And in that you will enjoy moments of a Greater You, recognizing the list of Happy you have built, to attract Happiness you seek... without the effort we speak.
