what do you do when you want to find yourself?
Give me the recipe to happiness, Please
Well, when I am not happy I am usually in some other negative mood that needs dumping to get back to happy. Life is too short not to be happy, at least most of the time. Therefore I tend to not take on other people's "stuff."
When I am happy I share it with someone I love.
When I want to be happy I find someone to laugh with and share it.
What I do when I want to "find myself," is light candles, put on soft music, turn off the light, and have a bubble bath. I simply "still myself," and clean my mental house of negative thoughts to get back to what is me. By the way, finding oneself is a life long committment not to be taken lightly I feel.
If I had a recipe for happiness I would patent it. I do feel that true happiness radiates only from within. If you are happy with yourself first, then there is room to be happy for, and with others. Things can not make you happy, nor can anyone else. It is catchy the kind of happiness that comes from inside the soul, and once you have it, it is an obligation to willingly share it.
