My happiness isn’t in my bank account! My happiness isn’t in my weight! My happiness isn’t in my clothes! My happiness isn’t in my car! My happiness isn’t based on if I’m going to be rich or famous! My happiness comes from within. My happiness is found in helping other people. My happiness comes from doing a job that I love. My happiness comes from loving myself! I talk to some people and they base their happiness on outer things. If my wife comes back to me then I’ll be happy or once I lose the weight then I’ll be happy. True happiness has to come from within. That’s a life lesson that I had to learn the hard way. Every time I would lose weight, I would think that I would automatically just become happy. I would have moments of happiness but it would never stay long. I would jump into relationships thinking that that would make me happy. It never did. I didn’t love myself. I used to think that once I found a husband then I would be happy. I was basing my happiness on another person. I wasn’t happy with my life or with myself. About a year and half ago, I was so uncomfortable with my life that I just knew that I couldn’t continue the same way that I had been living. I had to make a change because I wasn’t happy. I was renting a townhouse, I had a great job, and I had money in my bank account but I still wasn’t happy. I started working on myself with the help of my life coach. I got to know myself and fell in love with me! I found the happiness in myself! I found the courage inside of me that was always there. My job is stressful but I wouldn’t change it for anything. Every day brings a new challenge and you learn new things every day. I started this blog to share my story and to help people but it’s done more for myself then I would have thought. It’s very cathartic to share my story and to actually see where I’ve been and where I am now. It’s cool to actually be able to see myself grow and change. I finally found my happiness inside of myself!
