HAPPINESS is Your Purpose

What if your ultimate purpose on this planet was to be HAPPY?

Let’s think about this for a minute…

Imagine if the world was filled with more happy people what a difference it would make. Like WOAH. Traffic would be a lot less stressful and there would probably be a lot less accidents. Relationships would prosper, conflicts would be resolved. I mean the list goes on….

Our energy influences everyone and everything around us, in fact it creates the very reality we experience. Have you ever been in a bad mood, had someone brighten up your day and all of a sudden with that perspective shift everything starts falling into place? Your reality around the situation changed completely.

When we lead with love, and lead our lives with joy it is an absolute GAME CHANGER. Trust me, I know because I am experiencing this miraculous shift for myself as I write this. 

I've put a lot of pressure on myself since, well, as long as I can remember. I'm pretty sure my 5th grade teacher told my parents I needed to take school less seriously haha.  I can't really explain it other than that I've had a very strong, almost overwhelming at times, sense of purpose since I was young. I wanted to change the world. Especially being an empath, I could feel and see all the pain in the world so strongly and it broke my heart. I wanted to do anything and everything I could to relieve it.

But the truth is that sense of purpose developed into some not so healthy adult habits like putting way too much pressure on myself to make a certain amount of money, be a certain way, reach a certain level of success by a certain age. And I expected when I achieved these things, well of course THEN I would be happy.

All of this did nothing but make my life a lot harder and my work a lot less effective. I realized I've been fighting an uphill battle on a mountain I built for myself and told myself to hike. A little ridiculous sounding I know, but it took me 27 years to realize this.

Thankfully I HAVE realized this. And I turned around and realized there was a much better way.

Our purpose is not our career, or our financial or success status. It’s not our skillset, or even our relationships. It's not even what we have to offer the world. It is simply to be the absolute happiest version of ourselves that we can be. Because when we are HAPPY, when we are experiencing joy, when we are vibrating at that high vibration, EVERYTHING ELSE FALLS INTO PLACE.

Why? Because when we take care of our internal world, all the external stuff has no choice but to rise up to meet the vibration we are now at. Anything that doesn't meet that vibration will fall away.

So here’s my “challenge” for you. Join me in trying things a little differently. Let’s eliminate the idea that happiness is something to achieve, but rather something we can experience now in this very moment. Let’s choose joy, choose happiness, from the start and make it our launching point for everything we want to achieve. Because our true purpose on this Earth, and the way we can make the biggest difference is simply by being happy.

Now, don’t get me wrong, this doesn’t mean we don’t have bad days. It just means that we don’t let the bad days control us or influence all our other days. Feel those not so great feelings, but don’t hold on to them, know that the sun always comes back out after the night. Knowing it will pass, allows the feelings to pass, and allows your true nature, which is joy, to resurface, every time.

When we emanate joy and happiness we change the world just by being. So whatever we need to do to cultivate joy within ourselves, that is our purpose, THAT is our life mission. Everything else, the job, the relationships, everything else will fall into place.

So what would make you happy today? Go do that, and see how the energy starts to change, well, everything.
