Happy or happy enough?

Are you happy with your current life? Your marriage, your job, kids, friendships and affiliations? Are you content and believe you’re meeting your full potential?

What is happy? The dictionary defines it as a feeling of contentment and pleasure and another definition is fortunate and convenient..ooh that’s interesting for sure. Is your life convenient? Hmmm I didn’t see that one when I started down this path.

Well back to my original question, are you happy or happy enough?

Have you decided to settle for what you have because fear is keeping you from what you want? Have you settled for a boyfriend when a husband is what you want? Have you settled for lust when love is what you crave? Have you settled for an apartment because you are afraid to want a house? Have you decided a dog or cat was what you could have when you really wanted children? Have you accepted your life because you are terrified to want something more?

Don’t be afraid my friend to go for what you need. I realize that when moving forward you are going to leave some things or people behind but that’s ok. Don’t let fear of failure create a barrier for you, make it your mantra. I will not fail, I can do this, God is in me, I cannot fail.

So if you were thinking of starting a business, do it. Ask for help, reach out, research and do it. You cannot fail you just may win different. If you were planning to get your GED but pride is stopping you, get over yourself and go do it, call the high school and ask. You don’t have to tell anyone, just go do it, for yourself. If you want to go back to college, cal them, speak to a counselor and financial aid, it may be easier than you thought. If you know you’re having mental issues but keep hiding it from your loved ones, stop, tell them what is going on and seek help. Your mental health is as important as your physical health. If you need to lose weight, stop putting yourself down, step down off the couch and go outside or to a gym and start walking, eat a little less each time and do it. You cannot fail, GOD IS IN YOU!

Don’t settle for happy enough, be happy for real. You were created to be happy
